World Central Kitchen confirms seven workers killed in Gaza strike

World Central Kitchen confirms that seven of its workers were killed in a strike on their vehicle in central Gaza late last night after they helped deliver food and other supplies to northern Gaza that had arrived hours earlier.

In a statement, the WCK says its staff was “traveling in a deconflicted zone in two armored cars branded with the WCK logo and a soft skin vehicle.”

The organization says that it was hit “despite coordinating movements with the IDF.”

“This is not only an attack against WCK, this is an attack on humanitarian organizations showing up in the most dire of situations where food is being used as a weapon of war. This is unforgivable,” says World Central Kitchen CEO Erin Gore.

The IDF has said it is “carrying out an in-depth examination at the highest levels to understand the circumstances of this tragic incident,” but did not say whether it was responsible for the strike.
