Airwars assessment

On October 11, 2023, two civilians were reportedly killed and two paramedics injured when an ambulance evacuating injured people near to Al Karama Towers was struck by alleged Israeli strikes. Sources did not provide the names or identities of the victims.

A report published by Al Mezan Center for Human Rights claimed that a number of strikes had hit the Karama neighbourhood from Tuesday 10th October onwards. The strikes were allegedly attributed to the Israeli forces by @HAMADBANALI1 and Al Mezan report. Mezan’s report stated a large number of injured were still under the rubble while strikes continued.

Al-Mayadeen’s correspondent in Gaza reported the attack on the ambulance, as well as other news agencies such as Shehab and AJA Egypt.
