Airwars assessment

Between two and five people were injured by an alleged Israeli airstrike that struck a crowd of people on Old Gaza Street in Jabaliya in the Northern Gaza Strip.

Both the Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) and Al Mezan reported a single airstrike around 6.15 p.m. injuring five people, who were taken to the Indonesian Hospital in the area for treatment. However, multiple different twitter accounts, including @alwatanvoice and @SamaNewsAgency1, provided the toll that two civilians were injured in the strikes.

There is limited further information on the identities of those injured and the nature of the injuries, and no information from the IDF on the strike at this time.

The incident occured at approximately 6:15 pm local time.
