International media reported that four foreign aid workers were killed as a result of an Israeli airstrike on the Gaza Strip.

According to reports from health officials in Gaza on Monday, April 1st, these aid workers were from Britain, Australia, and Poland, and the identity of one of them has not been determined.

Reports suggest that these aid workers were affiliated with the relief organization known as the “World Central Kitchen.”

The organization described the Israeli attack as a “tragedy,” emphasizing that “members of the World Central Kitchen team were killed in an Israeli camp attack while trying to support humanitarian efforts to deliver food in Gaza.”

Jose Andres, the head of the “World Central Kitchen,” added, “The Israeli government must stop this relentless massacre. It must refrain from restricting humanitarian aid, killing non-combatants and aid workers, and using food as a weapon. No more innocent lives should be lost. Peace begins with our common humanity. It must start now.”

Hamas also confirmed the killing of five people, including a Palestinian driver, in the “Deir al-Balah” area.

Meanwhile, Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese said that a 44-year-old Australian aid worker was killed in the Gaza attack and emphasized that he is seeking a “full and appropriate response.”

It is worth noting that the United Nations has consistently criticized Israel for targeting aid workers and has warned of the dire human rights situation and famine in Gaza.
