World Central Kitchen calls for independent investigation into Israel’s bombing that resulted in fatalities

The ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas has resulted in the deaths of over 200 aid workers in just six months, a number that is unprecedented in any other conflict in a single year, according to U.N. Humanitarian Coordinator Jamie McGoldrick. Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has acknowledged that innocent people were unintentionally killed in Gaza by Israeli forces, stating that such incidents are unfortunately common in times of war. In response, Israel has announced it will conduct an internal investigation regarding the killings.

World Central Kitchen (WCK), a food charity, recently revealed that multiple strikes targeting three of their vehicles resulted in a military attack that claimed aid worker lives. WCK has asked the Israeli government to preserve all evidence related to the attack. José Andrés, the organization’s founder and a celebrity chef, has urged the U.S. to pressure Prime Minister Netanyahu to end the war immediately, criticizing the White House for providing aid to Gaza while also arming Israel.

There is growing international condemnation of the deaths of aid workers in the Israel-Hamas conflict, with even Israel’s staunchest allies calling for a prompt investigation into the killings. The unprecedented number of humanitarian workers who have lost their lives in this ongoing conflict is raising concerns worldwide and highlighting the urgent need for peace and resolution in the region.

Jamie McGoldrick also stated that “The killing of humanitarian workers is a violation of international law and must be thoroughly investigated.” The U.N Humanitarian Coordinator also called on all parties involved to ensure that aid workers can safely deliver critical assistance to those affected by this crisis.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has acknowledged that innocent people were unintentionally killed by Israeli forces during this conflict but he also stated that it is not uncommon during wartime situations.

The world is watching this situation closely as it continues to unfold and calls for immediate action from both sides to end this senseless violence.

José Andrés urged President Trump to take action saying “It’s time for our government to step up and put an end to this brutal war.”
