The unprovoked terrorist attack by Hamas on October 7 has endangered not only Israel but the more than two million people living in the Gaza Strip. Although Hamas won the 2006 elections in Gaza and took control of the area from the Palestinian Authority the following year, the group has said it has no responsibility for the people who live there.
On October 15, Hamas operatives stole food and medical supplies from humanitarian trucks. The United Nations Relief and Works Agency reported the theft in a tweet, which it later deleted. But UN sources confirmed the theft to Israel’s Walla News, and Israel’s military liaison to the Palestinians confirmed that the fuel and medical supplies went to Hamas.
