On Tuesday evening, a convoy from the World Central Kitchen (WCK) was accidentally targeted by Israeli forces near Deir al-Balah in the central Gaza Strip. This attack led to the death of seven WCK personnel and resulted in the suspension of their humanitarian work in the region. The Israeli army claimed responsibility for the attack and expressed their condolences to the families of the victims, promising a thorough investigation into the incident.

The World Central Kitchen (WCK), founded by former Michelin chef José Andrés, has been providing food aid in war and crisis areas since 2010. After an attack on their convoy, which killed seven employees from Australia, Poland, Great Britain, USA and Palestine, VCK temporarily suspended its activities in the region. The deaths of these employees have led to calls for accountability from various countries, including Australia and Poland. The EU and US have also called on Israel to clarify the incident.

In response to these calls for accountability, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated that Israel is taking steps to prevent such incidents from happening again in the future. However, it remains uncertain what will happen with future distributions of aid supplies sent by VCK from Cyprus to Gaza as a result of this incident.
