EU excoriates Israel for killing food aid workers in Gaza – POLITICO

“We recall the Israeli obligation, under international humanitarian law, to protect humanitarian workers at all times,” they added. A large number of aid workers have lost their lives since the start of the war in Gaza.

More than 200 aid workers have been killed since the start of the war, according to Spanish newspaper El País.

World Central Kitchen, a U.S.-based organization that said it provided 42 million meals in 175 days in Gaza, suspended its operations in the region following the strike.

Israel is under growing international pressure over its conduct in Gaza, where more than 32,000 Palestinians have been killed in ongoing bombings, according to local authorities. Israeli military operations began in retaliation for a deadly attack by Hamas militants on its soil on October 7 last year.
