Israel blames aid worker attack on “misidentification” while José Andrés claims it was deliberate.

Misidentified Targets: The Tragic Consequences of Israel’s Military Actions

The Israeli army’s preliminary report on the triple aerial bombardment that killed seven members of World Central Kitchen (WCK), an NGO founded by Spanish chef José Andrés, does not provide many answers. The attack has been attributed to “misidentification,” with no further details given. Despite this, Israeli Chief of Staff Herzi Halevi has acknowledged that the attack was a failure due to mistaken identification, stating that it should not have happened.

According to reports, three missiles targeted the vehicles carrying WCK workers as they were traveling to distribute food in Gaza. This is despite the fact that the Israeli army had been informed of their route and timing. The Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, described the incident as tragic and unintentional, stating that it occurs in times of war.

José Andrés responded to this statement in an article, urging Israel to open land routes for food and medicine and stop killing civilians and humanitarian workers. The bodies of the seven victims, including three Britons, an Australian, a Pole, and a dual Canadian-American national, have been removed from Gaza. U.S President Joe Biden has demanded a prompt investigation into the attack and expressed frustration with Israel’s methods in the conflict.

The White House has called for a thorough and transparent investigation by Israel into the incident. Despite strong rhetoric from various countries condemning the deadly bombing, Israel continues to support its military actions against Hamas in Gaza. Poland has expressed anger over the incident and Israel’s reaction after losing one of its nationals in the attack
