Belgium says worker taking part in country’s Gaza aid efforts killed in overnight strike

An aid worker who was part of Belgium’s development aid efforts in the Gaza Strip died in an Israeli strike on Rafah, the country’s development minister, Caroline Gennez, says.

“It is with deep sadness and horror that we learn of the death of our colleague Abdallah Nabhan (33) and his seven-year-old son Jamal, last night, following a bombardment by the Israeli army in the eastern part of the city of Rafah,” the minister says in a statement.

Nabhan, whose nationality was not disclosed, worked for the Enabel agency, assisting small businesses.

The Israel Defense Forces had no immediate comment when contacted.
