Poland condemns ‘disregard for international humanitarian law’ after Polish volunteer killed in strike on aid group

Poland’s foreign ministry expresses condolences to the family of a Polish volunteer who was killed in Gaza while working for celebrity chef Jose Andres’ World Central Kitchen aid agency.

“We extend our deepest condolences to the family of the volunteer who was providing aid to the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip,” the ministry says in a post on social media platform X.

“Poland objects to the disregard for international humanitarian law and the protection of civilians, including humanitarian workers.”

The aid organization has said seven workers were killed in a strike late last night while unloading humanitarian aid in central Gaza and has suspended operations in the Palestinian enclave until further notice.

The IDF has not said whether it was responsible for the strike, but said it is carrying out an “in-depth examination” into the “tragic incident.”
