Israel takes responsibility for attack that killed foreign aid workers – Poland and Britain call for inquiry


Apr 2, 2024

The attack on the convoy of the World Central Kitchen aid organization resulted in the deaths of Polish and British citizens, among others. The American aid organization accused Israel of a “targeted attack” on their employees. Seven aid workers were killed in an attack by the Israeli armed forces in the city of Deir al-Balah in the central Gaza Strip. The aid workers were returning by car from northern Gaza where they had been distributing aid brought by ship.

Among the dead were Australian, British, Palestinian, Polish, and dual Canadian-American citizens. Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu admitted responsibility for the attack, stating it was not intended to kill the aid workers. The Israeli armed forces apologized for the attack and promised to investigate. The convoy of aid workers was traveling in armored vehicles marked with the organization’s insignia and their logos were visible.

Representatives from countries whose citizens were killed in the attack condemned the incident and demanded answers from Israel. Investigations into the attack are underway, and the aid organization has suspended its operations in Gaza. The tragic event has sparked global outrage and calls for accountability. Humanitarian aid workers and civilians should never be targets of violence, and countries around the world are demanding justice for the senseless loss of life.
