Cameron expressed deep dismay at the news of the deaths, stressing that British citizens were among the victims. He called on Israel to quickly investigate the event and provide clear information about what happened, with an emphasis on the protection of aid workers.

The Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs also expressed its “deepest condolences” to the family of a Polish volunteer killed in an Israeli airstrike in the Palestinian Gaza Strip and condemned the disregard for international humanitarian law in the area.

“We express our deepest condolences to the family of a volunteer who delivered humanitarian aid to the Palestinian population in the Gaza Strip. Poland condemns the disregard for international humanitarian law and the protection of civilians, including humanitarian workers,” the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs wrote on the social network.

Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski subsequently called on Israel’s ambassador in Warsaw to provide an “urgent explanation” regarding the slain Polish volunteer.

The White House expressed deep sorrow over the deaths of WCK workers. “We are devastated and deeply troubled by this attack,” White House National Security Council spokeswoman Adrienne Watson said on the X social network.

She further emphasized that it is essential to protect the humanitarian workers who provide the necessary assistance. She called on Israel to investigate the incident as soon as possible.

The Israeli army promised a thorough investigation of the incident and the determination of its circumstances. She added that she is working with the WCK to deliver the necessary aid to the Palestinians.

WCK is involved in the delivery of food aid to the Gaza Strip from Cyprus and the construction of a temporary jetty off the coast of Gaza City where such cargo can be unloaded.

The Gaza Strip is currently almost completely sealed off, and NGOs and the United Nations accuse Israel of obstructing the delivery of essential humanitarian aid to its 2.4 million residents. They are mainly concentrated in the city of Rafah and its surroundings in the southern part of the enclave.
