An Israeli airstrike killed at least eight Palestinians east of Rafah on Monday, the European Hospital Media Unit told CNN.

The “civilian volunteers” were securing commercial trucks in the area, it said.

The hospital officials said it was in an Israeli airstrike, citing witnesses who arrived with the injured people and those who helped to pull the bodies from under the rubble.

The area that was hit is designated for commercial trucks, the media unit said.

The European Hospital also released the names of the people killed and said others were also injured.

CNN has reached out to the Israel Defense Forces for comment.
