Biden also said it was unlikely that both sides would stop firing before March 4 as he had previously thought, Agence France-Presse reported. He stressed that he still hoped to reach an agreement on a six-week ceasefire in exchange for the release of hostages by Hamas.

Responding to a reporter’s question at the White House about the timing of the ceasefire, Biden said: “There’s always hope…I’ve talked on the phone with people in the region…Maybe the 4th (ceasefire).” “Not before, but I hope so.”

Gaza’s health ministry said more than 100 people were killed when Israeli troops fired on Palestinians who were struggling to get food aid in the chaos.

Asked about the incident, Biden said, “We’re investigating right now. There are two versions of what happened and I don’t have any answers yet.”

Asked if he was concerned the incident would complicate difficult armistice negotiations, Biden responded: “I know it will.”

White House deputy press secretary Olivia Dalton told reporters traveling with Biden to Texas on Air Force One: “We believe this latest incident requires a thorough investigation… We have Contacted the Israeli government this morning to discuss.” Gather information and ask them to investigate.”

The Israeli military said that at that time, thousands of Gazans surrounded a convoy of 38 aid trucks and “stampede”, resulting in several casualties, some of whom were crushed under the trucks. An Israeli source acknowledged that the army opened fire on the crowd and considered the situation “dangerous”.

Gaza’s Health Ministry condemned the “massacre” in Gaza City that killed 112 people and injured more than 750.

The health ministry in Gaza previously said more than 30,000 Palestinians had died in the Israeli-Gaza war that began on October 7 last year.
