Palestine: IDF murders aid workers in Gaza airstrike

“Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel’s armed forces had ‘unintentionally’ struck a convoy from the humanitarian group World Central Kitchen in Gaza late Monday, killing seven aid workers. ‘Unfortunately, in the last day there was a tragic case of our forces unintentionally hitting innocent people in the Gaza Strip,’ Netanyahu said Tuesday as he left a hospital in Jerusalem after a hernia operation. ‘It happens in war. We will investigate it right to the end. … We are in contact with the governments, and we will do everything so that this thing does not happen again.’ Earlier, the Israel Defense Forces expressed ‘sincere sorrow’ over the deaths while stopping short of accepting responsibility. In response to the killings, World Central Kitchen suspended its operations delivering vital food aid in Gaza, where Israel’s offensive has pushed hundreds of thousands of Palestinians to the brink of starvation.” (04/02/24)
