Several WCK Aid Workers Killed in Israeli Attack

Australian, Canadian, Polish, American, British and Palestinian aid workers were reportedly among seven killed in an Israeli attack following the delivery of food relief in central Gaza’s Deir el-Balah, the Gaza government media office reports.

US-based aid group World Central Kitchen (WCK) said “several” staff were killed in an Israeli air strike and called on Israel to stop “this indiscriminate killing” in Gaza.

Australia's Prime Minister says he expects full accountability for the deaths. The Israeli army says it's conducting a thorough review at the highest levels into the incident.
