Three British aid workers were tragically killed in Gaza by an Israeli airstrike, according to the charity World Central Kitchen (WCK).

Additionally, nationals from Poland and Australia, along with a dual citizen of the US and Canada, lost their lives in the attack. A Palestinian driver, who was transporting the aid workers, also perished in the airstrike.

The volunteers were affiliated with WCK, a non-governmental organisation dedicated to providing food assistance to displaced Palestinians. The fatal incident occurred when their vehicle was struck by an airstrike shortly after crossing into northern Gaza. It is believed they were engaged in delivering aid that had recently arrived from Cyprus.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu acknowledged the responsibility of Israeli forces for the airstrike, terming it a “tragic incident of an unintended strike on innocent people in the Gaza Strip.” He assured that investigations would be conducted thoroughly and measures would be taken to prevent such occurrences in the future.

Following the devastating news, Tory David Cameron expressed ‘profound distress’ over the airstrike, particularly concerning the reported loss of British nationals. He vowed to verify the information promptly and extend full support to the families affected. Cameron emphasised the importance of safeguarding humanitarian workers and urged Israel to conduct a transparent investigation into the incident.

Meanwhile, Erin Gore, CEO of WCK, disclosed that the volunteer team was travelling in armoured vehicles marked with the WCK logo and a soft skin vehicle within a deconflicted zone. Despite coordination with the Israel Defence Forces (IDF), the convoy was struck as it departed a warehouse in Deir al Balah. Consequently, WCK announced an immediate pause in its operations in the region.

In a statement, WCK condemned the attack, asserting that humanitarian aid workers and civilians should never be targeted. Ms. Gore condemned the incident as an assault not only on WCK but on all humanitarian organisations striving to alleviate suffering in conflict zones.

The IDF pledged to conduct a thorough review of the circumstances surrounding the incident and extended condolences to the affected families and the entire WCK community. Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari, Israel’s chief military spokesperson, emphasised the commitment to prevent similar tragedies in the future through enhanced measures and protocols.

However, the murder, genocide, and lies continue.
