Israeli strike kills five World Central Kitchen aid workers in Gaza

Palestinian media outlets have reported that an Israeli attack on a vehicle south of Deir al-Balah in central Gaza killed five aid workers affiliated with World Central Kitchen (WCK).

According to the reports, the organisation was coordinating with Israeli authorities preparing to receive its first aid shipment coming to Gaza via sea. Just today a ship arrived in the newly created pier by Israel and WCK was offloading it and working to distribute it.

Four of the five killed were British, Australian, Polish and Palestinian. The nationality of the fifth person is still unknown.

The Israeli military has not yet commented.
