Employee of World Central Kitchen dies in Gaza

On Tuesday night, a convoy from World Central Kitchen (WCK) was inadvertently shot at by Israel, leading to the suspension of their relief work in the region. The convoy was hit near Deir al-Balah in the central Gaza Strip, resulting in the death of seven WCK staff members. The Israeli army claimed responsibility for the attack and expressed condolences to the families of the victims, promising a thorough investigation into the incident.

The death of WCK employees has led to calls for accountability from various countries, including Australia and Poland. The EU and USA have also urged Israel to clarify the incident. In response, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated that Israel is taking steps to prevent such incidents from happening again in the future.

WCK’s work in providing relief supplies to Gaza has been put on hold following the attack. The organization had previously coordinated aid deliveries to the region and shipped food supplies from Cyprus to Gaza. However, due to safety concerns following the attack, WCK has temporarily suspended its activities in Gaza.

WCK is an international non-governmental organization that provides food aid in war and crisis areas since 2010. Founded by former Michelin chef José Andrés, WCK has been working tirelessly to provide relief supplies to people affected by conflicts around the world. The loss of life among WCK staff members is a tragic reminder of how dangerous it can be for humanitarian workers operating in conflict zones.
