Israeli F-16 attacks Venezuela's humanitarian delegation to Gaza

Saturday, August 23, 2014

Venezuelan ambassador to Egypt, Juan Antonio Hernandez, said on August 20 that an Israeli aircraft attacked the Venezuelan humanitarian delegation in Rafah along the border post between Egypt and Palestine, Venezuela Analysis said the next day.

The delegation was delivering 12 tons of aid to the Palestinian people. No one was injured during the attack.

The F-16 fighter plane dropped a missile very close to the humanitarian site, though it did not explode. Hernandez said it was “an act of intimidation, which is not a coincidence and proves that Tel Aviv is trying to halt humanitarian aid, because right now Venezuela is an important beacon for the Palestinian people”.
