Widespread international condemnation Zionist enemy’s crime of assassination seven international relief workers in Gaza

CAPITALS April 03. 2024 (Saba) -The assassination of seven international relief workers in a Zionist air strike that targeted their vehicles last night, in Deir al-Balah in the central Gaza Strip, was met with widespread international condemnation, demands for the Zionist enemy to stop the indiscriminate killing and starvation war that it has been practicing in the Strip for more than six months.

In this context, the founder of the "World Central Kitchen" WCK organization, José Andrés, expressed in a post on the "X" platform, his sadness over the killing of members of the organization in the Zionist raid... calling on the enemy government to stop "indiscriminate killing" and impose... Restrictions on humanitarian aid, and demanded that it stop using food as a weapon.

The relief organization explained that the seven dead were from Australia, Poland, and Britain, and some of them had dual nationalities from America, Canada, and Palestine.

The organization said: Its targeted team was moving in a demilitarized zone with two armored cars and another vehicle bearing the organization’s logo, but it was bombed while leaving a warehouse in Deir al-Balah after unloading more than 100 tons of humanitarian food aid, despite the coordination of the movement with the Zionist enemy army.

In turn, the Chief Executive Officer of the charity, Erin Gore, said in a statement: “I feel sad and horrified that we lost beautiful lives today due to a targeted attack launched by the Zionist army.” She added: “The love they had for feeding people, and the determination they embodied to show that humanity “Rising above all else, the impact they made on the lives of countless people will be remembered and cherished forever.”

WCK- World Central Kitchen - food charity decided to suspend its operations in Gaza after seven of its employees were killed in an Israeli air strike. It said: The dead were part of an aid convoy that was leaving a warehouse in central Gaza.

A Palestinian medical source told the British BBC that the employees were wearing bullet-proof vests bearing the organization’s logo.

While the Palestinian Red Crescent Society said: It recovered all seven bodies from the scene of the accident after a “difficult operation that lasted several hours,” adding: The bodies were transferred to Abu Youssef al-Najjar Hospital in southern Gaza in preparation for their evacuation through the Rafah border crossing to Egypt.

The Palestinian resistance factions condemned the "horrific" crime committed by the Zionist enemy against a foreign relief team affiliated with the "World Central Kitchen" organization after their car bearing the organization's logo was targeted, in Deir al-Balah in the central Gaza Strip.

The Islamic Resistance Movement "Hamas" condemned the crime, considering that this crime once again confirms that the Zionist enemy still insists on the policy of systematic killing against unarmed civilians, against international relief teams and humanitarian organizations, as part of its efforts to terrorize their workers, to prevent them from continuing their humanitarian missions.

Hamas called on the international community and the Security Council to condemn this heinous act and take action to put an end to the crimes of the Zionist enemy and its aggression against the Palestinian people in Gaza Strip.

While the Mujahideen Movement confirmed that this heinous crime, in addition to the ongoing crimes against the Palestinian people in steadfast Gaza, reflects the enemy’s insistence on killing and conveying a message to the world and international institutions that it is above the law and accountability.

The movement indicated that this new brutal crime reflects the extent of the crime practiced by Zionist gangs against the human race in Palestine without distinction or discrimination.

It stressed that "the continuation of Zionist crimes requires every free person in the world to raise his voice and exert more pressure to stop the Zionist genocidal crimes in Gaza Strip, as shame will befall everyone who is negligent and silent."

The national and Islamic forces in Palestine also denounced the targeting by enemy aircraft of a number of armored cars carrying well-known international signals upon their return from Lisan el-Bahri area in the Central Governorate, which reveals the level of Nazi-Zionist terrorism that targets humans, stones and trees and seeks to destroy all aspects of civilian life.

These forces stressed that this heinous crime is a message of intimidation to the whole world and to all international and humanitarian efforts that seek to alleviate the suffering of the Palestinians as a result of the siege and aggression.

At the international level... Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski announced that he requested clarifications from the Zionist entity the day after the raid that resulted in the killing of seven relief workers, including a Polish.

In turn, Spanish Prime Minister
Pedro Sánchez Pérez called on the government of the Zionist enemy to clarify the circumstances of the attack on aid workers as soon as possible.

Meanwhile, United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, Martin Griffiths, expressed his anger at the killing of relief workers, and said in press statements: “Despite talk of a ceasefire, war steals the best from us and the actions of those behind it cannot be defended.”

The director of the (Israel and Palestine) department of the international human rights organization Human Rights Watch confirmed: The Zionist entity took the decision to bomb the convoy of aid workers despite knowing its movements... noting that more than 170 aid workers were killed in Gaza, and anyone who helps the Palestinians in Gaza is at risk of being killed.

As for Australian Prime Minister Anthony Norman Albanese , he considered the killing of an Australian aid worker in the raid “totally unacceptable,” stressing that his government is in contact with the Zionist government and its ambassador in an effort to “accountability.”

Albanese said: “We expect full accountability for the tragedy of the killing of aid workers in Gaza. Aid workers and humanitarian workers, and all innocent civilians, need to be protected.”

While the Zionist enemy army pledged today to conduct an investigation that it claimed would be “transparent” into the air strike that led to the killing of aid workers in Gaza, US Secretary of State Antony John Blinken called on the Zionist enemy authorities to conduct a “quick and impartial” investigation into the killing of the seven workers.

He said: “We spoke directly to the Zionist government regarding this specific incident... We called for a quick, comprehensive and impartial investigation to understand exactly what happened,” adding: Humanitarian workers must be protected.

In turn, French Foreign Minister Stéphane Séjourné today expressed his country's firm condemnation, stressing that "protecting humanitarian personnel is a moral and legal duty to which the world must adhere."

European Union foreign policy official Josep Borrell also condemned the bloody attack on the American charitable organization World Central Kitchen in Gaza, calling for an investigation to be opened.

“I condemn this attack and call for an investigation to begin as soon as possible,” Borrell wrote on the “X” website, adding, “Despite all appeals to protect civilians and aid workers, we continue to see innocent people being killed.”

For its part, China today expressed its "shock" over the Zionist strike that resulted in the killing of seven employees of an American relief organization in the Gaza Strip.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin announced in a statement that Beijing “opposes any action that harms civilians, destroys civilian infrastructure, or violates international law,” adding: “We condemn” this attack.

Jean-François Courte, vice president of Doctors of the World, said on Tuesday that the strike that killed seven workers at the American food aid NGO in Gaza was “a message sent by the Israeli army” aimed at preventing humanitarian workers from intervening on the ground.

British Foreign Secretary David Cameron also called on the Zionist entity to “immediately investigate and provide a full and transparent explanation of what happened” regarding the air strike that resulted in the deaths of seven aid workers in the Strip.

Cameron wrote in a post on the “X” platform: “The killing of British citizens has been reported and we are working urgently to verify this information,” adding: “It is essential that humanitarian workers enjoy protection and be able to do their work.”

Cypriot President Nikos Christodoulides also called for an immediate investigation into the killing of the seven aid workers, saying: The US-based charity Central Kitchen World was an “important partner” in the initiative to deliver aid to the Strip by sea.

“We need to redouble efforts to deliver aid to Gaza,” he said after a meeting with European Parliament President Roberta Metsola.

It is noteworthy that the World Central Kitchen organization has actively participated since the start of the war between the Zionist enemy entity and the Palestinian resistance in Gaza on October 7th of last year in relief operations, especially distributing meals to residents of the Strip threatened by famine, and providing food aid and ready-made meals to those in need. Last month, it said it had provided more than 42 million meals in Gaza over 175 days.

The organization began working in 2010 when Chef José Andrés sent chefs and food to Haiti after an earthquake there.

Since then, the organization has been delivering food to communities affected by natural disasters, refugees and health care workers.

It is worth noting that, according to US-funded security data records for aid workers, which record major incidents of violence against aid workers, more than 196 aid workers have been killed in Gaza since last October.
