Biden expresses sympathy for loss of World Central Kitchen employees

World Central Kitchen, a charity founded by celebrity chef José Andrés, has temporarily suspended its operations in Gaza after seven aid workers were killed in an Israeli airstrike. The group had coordinated its movements with the Israeli military and the convoy was clearly marked with the World Central Kitchen logo.

President Joe Biden called chef José Andrés to offer condolences over the tragic deaths of the aid workers who were working for the nonprofit organization. Biden expressed his sorrow and grief with the World Central Kitchen family, emphasizing the importance of recognizing the immense contribution the organization has made to Gaza and communities around the world.

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.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu described the airstrike as unintended and tragic, promising an independent inquiry into the incident. The U.S., however, remains skeptical of Israel’s promises of accountability and transparency, citing past failures to investigate similar incidents involving Palestinian civilians.
