In the last hours, at least seven workers of World Central Kitchen (WCK), the NGO of the chef Jose Andres, have been killed in a bombing by the Israeli army in Deir al-Balah.

The deceased were in the center of the Gaza Strip in an operation that has always been coordinated with the Israeli military to work in “non-conflict” areas, always with the organization’s own vehicles.

For this tragic reason, World Central Kitchen (WCK) has had to cease its humanitarian aid on Gazan territory.

Moreover, the sad news has been published on their official X account, formerly Twitter. In it, they have confirmed that members of the organization “have been killed in an IDF attack while working to support our humanitarian efforts to deliver food in Gaza.”

In addition to insisting that this is a tragedy, they have reminded that civilians and humanitarian aid workers “should never be the targets.”

Among the workers who have lost their lives, the NGO has confirmed that there is an Australian, a Pole, a Briton and two people with dual US-Canadian nationality. In the vehicle, the Palestinian driver accompanying the workers was also killed.

Jose Andres: Today we lost several of our brothers and sisters

Andres has also confirmed the news through his social networks. The chef has pointed out that “today we lost several of our brothers and sisters”, whom he has defined as “angels” and with whom he has recalled that “I served with them in Ukraine, Gaza, Turkey, Morocco, Bahamas, Indonesia”.

“I am heartbroken and grieving for their families and friends and for all our WCK family,” said Andres. The chef has urged the Israeli government to “put an end to this indiscriminate killing.”

“It has to stop restricting humanitarian aid, stop killing civilians and humanitarian workers and stop using food as a weapon. No more innocent lives will be lost. Peace begins with our shared humanity,” he added.
