A Canadian humanitarian organization says its primary water aid truck was bombed in Gaza and is calling on the federal government to mount a full investigation into what it believes was a "targeted" incident.

The International Development and Relief Foundation (IDRF), a registered non-profit based in Toronto, told CBC News the truck was bombed in the early hours of Wednesday morning and that no one was hurt in the incident.

Zeina Osman, the IDRF's director of impact, said the bombing is the first involving a Canadian aid truck during the current war in the Gaza, but wouldn't say outright if the organization believes the Israeli military was behind the bombing.

It's got hydrogen in it.

Oh no, you see the water truck was part of a whatsapp group that other aid trucks who were also bombed were part off.

Everything I know about liquid containers I learned from the TSA. Any liquid could be a secret explosive, so Israel had to blow it up to be sure it was really water. Destroying the water was an unfortunate and necessary measure to ensure the safety of all Gazans.
