Norwegian aid vehicle hit by Israeli rocket

A truck which belongs to the Norwegian People's Aid (NPA) (Norsk Folkehjelp) was hit and destroyed in a residential area in Gaza by an Israeli rocket late Friday evening, says NPA leader Petter Eide.

According to Eide, the truck was clearly marked with NPA's emblem on the roof, as well s a flag.

The truck was parked outside the home of one of NPA's local employees, at Beach Camp, just north of Gaza City and there are no military targets in the area, Eide says.

The Norwegian Department of Foreign Affairs has been informed of the incident.
