Employee of World Central Kitchen dies in Gaza

On Tuesday night, a convoy from World Central Kitchen (WCK) was shot at by Israeli forces near Deir al-Balah in the central Gaza Strip. This unfortunate incident led to the death of seven WCK staff members and resulted in the suspension of their relief work in the region.

The Israeli army claimed responsibility for the attack and expressed condolences to the families of the victims, promising a thorough investigation into the incident. However, this has not been enough to appease various countries, including Australia and Poland, which have called for accountability. The European Union and the USA have also urged Israel to clarify what happened.

Founded by former Michelin chef José Andrés, WCK has been providing food aid in war and crisis areas since 2010. The employees killed in this incident were from Australia, Poland, Great Britain, the US, and Palestine. Their deaths have sparked outrage from around the world.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has stated that Israel is taking steps to prevent such incidents from happening again in the future. However, it remains uncertain when WCK’s activities will resume as their work providing relief supplies to Gaza by sea has been put on hold following this attack.
