Israel blames mistaken identity for attack on aid workers while José Andrés insists it was intentional.

An Israeli army investigation into the triple aerial bombardment that killed seven members of World Central Kitchen (WCK), an NGO led by Spanish chef José Andrés, in Gaza has left many unanswered questions. The attack is attributed to “misidentification” without providing further details. According to Haaretz’s security sources, three missiles were fired at the vehicles carrying humanitarian workers, despite being clearly marked with the NGO’s logo and having informed the Israeli army of their route and time.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the incident “tragic” and “unintentional,” stating that it was a consequence of war. José Andrés, in response, emphasized that the airstrikes were a direct attack on clearly marked vehicles and called for peace and protection of humanitarian workers. The bodies of the victims, including three Britons, an Australian, a Pole, and a dual Canadian-American citizen, were removed from Gaza. President Joe Biden expressed frustration with Israel’s actions and demanded a thorough investigation into the attack. The United States continues to provide humanitarian aid to Gaza but expects Israel to protect civilians and aid workers.

Poland also lost a national in the attack, prompting Prime Minister Donald Tusk to address Netanyahu and the Israeli ambassador in Warsaw. Tusk reproached them for testing Poland’s solidarity with Israel and denounced anti-Semitism. The incident has generated anger and calls for accountability. The White House is waiting for the results of the Israeli investigation before considering additional measures. While Israel’s actions in the conflict continue to be supported, pressure for accountability and protection of civilians remains high.
