Biden expresses sympathy for loss of World Central Kitchen employees

In the wake of an Israeli airstrike that killed seven aid workers from World Central Kitchen, a charity founded by celebrity chef José Andrés, the organization has temporarily suspended its operations in Gaza. President Joe Biden called chef Andrés to offer condolences over the tragic deaths of the aid workers who were working for the nonprofit organization. Biden emphasized the immense contribution the organization has made to Gaza and communities around the world.

The group had coordinated its movements with the Israeli military and their convoy was clearly marked with the World Central Kitchen logo. The workers were killed as their convoy was leaving a warehouse in Deir al-Balah after unloading over 100 tons of food aid brought to Gaza by sea. The Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu described the airstrike as unintended and tragic, promising an independent inquiry into the incident.

The United States expressed outrage over the airstrikes, with White House spokesperson John Kirby calling for a swift and comprehensive investigation by the Israeli military. The U.S. hopes for transparency in the investigation and expects appropriate accountability for the tragic loss of life. The World Central Kitchen aid workers who lost their lives in Gaza will be remembered for their dedication to helping those in need.
