Israeli Army Admits Mistake in Killing Seven Humanitarian Workers from WCK in Gaza Strip; Calls for Thorough Investigation to Prevent Such Occurrences in the Future

On Tuesday, the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, acknowledged that an Israeli Army mistake led to the unintentional killing of seven humanitarian workers from the NGO World Central Kitchen (WCK) in the Gaza Strip. Netanyahu expressed deep regret for the incident and pledged to investigate it thoroughly to prevent such occurrences in the future.

The Israeli Army has announced that an independent military entity, the Fact Investigation and Assessment Mechanism, will investigate the attack that led WCK to suspend its operations in the region. The IDF spokesperson, Daniel Hagari, has conveyed condolences to chef Jos Andrés, founder of WCK, for the tragic deaths of his workers.

The convoy carrying WCK’s humanitarian aid was hit while traveling through a non-conflict area despite having coordinated its movements with the IDF. The attack resulted in seven fatalities among foreign nationals working for WCK during this ongoing conflict in Gaza.

Jos Andrés has called on Israel’s government to stop indiscriminate killings and allow humanitarian aid to reach those in need without any obstructions. As a result of this attack, World Central Kitchen has stopped its operations in Gaza while considering their future role in assisting those affected by the conflict.
