The Israeli government has offered assistance to their Palestinian neighbours this week after a mysterious fire broke out in residential buildings and killed 21 people.

The fire broke out Thursday evening on the third floor of a three-story building in Jabaliya, a town located in the northwest part of the Gaza Strip.

The Civil Defense in Gaza, which Hamas runs, attributed the fire’s cause to gasoline stored in the building. It isn’t clear how the gasoline ignited but investigations are underway.

A video of the incident was shared online showing a building engulfed in flames. People watched on helplessly as they waited for emergency crews to arrive.

Gaza is known for having weak infrastructure and so people often rely on storing cooking oil, petrol and gasoline in their homes in preparation for winter. Fires happen regularly often caused by a candle or a gas leak.

Israel has now offered assistance to authorities in the Gaza Strip to help in any way they can, including treating patients in Israel.

“The State of Israel and the security establishment express sorrow for the heavy disaster in Gaza,” Defense Minister Benny Gantz tweeted, adding that the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) has offered humanitarian assistance in the evacuation of hurt civilians.

“Israel will be doing the right thing to help the residents of Gaza who were harmed, in order to save lives,” he stated.
