Massacre of civilians/regrettable loss of life from civilian disorder in Gaza

I think it’s fair to observe that starving people tend to become unruly when presented with the prospect of acquiring food:

Israeli forces opened fire on Thursday as a crowd gathered near a convoy of aid trucks in Gaza City in a chaotic scene where dozens were killed and injured, according to the official Palestinian Authority news agency and an Israeli official who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

The details of what happened were unclear, with Palestinian and Israeli officials offering starkly different accounts.

The Gazan health authorities said that more than 100 people were killed and more than 700 injured in a “massacre.” The official Palestinian Authority news agency, Wafa, reported that “Israeli tanks had opened fire with machine guns at thousands” waiting for aid to arrive.

The Israeli military said in two statements that Gazans had surrounded aid trucks and “looted the supplies.” As a result, dozens were “killed and injured from pushing, trampling and being run over by the trucks,” the military said. It did not directly address the Palestinian claims of machine gun fire and said it was investigating.

I see no endgame here.
