Following the airstrike, ambulances faced difficulties in reaching the market, further complicating rescue efforts.

The conflict in Gaza began when the Palestinian Hamas movement initiated Operation Al-Aqsa Flood, which involved rocket launches and infiltrations into Israel by sea, land, and air. This action was in response to the storming of Al-Aqsa Mosque and increased violence by Israeli settlers. In retaliation, the Israeli army launched Operation Iron Swords against Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip.

During the ongoing armed conflict between Israel and Hamas, a humanitarian convoy consisting of 20 trucks successfully entered the Gaza Strip from the Egyptian side of the Rafah border crossing. This marked the first convoy since the conflict began on October 7.
