Biden sharply criticized the convoy strike in Gaza. Israel has admitted a serious mistake

--

Biden thus joined Western politicians who condemned the Israeli army for killing seven workers of the World Central Kitchen (WCK) charity organization. According to the AP agency, he chose a sharper tone than in his previous critical words towards Israel, for which Washington is a key ally.

According to the head of the White House, the incident is a tragedy that Israel must quickly investigate and take responsibility and make the conclusions public.

“What’s even more tragic is that this is not an isolated incident. This conflict is the worst in recent history in terms of aid workers killed,” the US president said in a statement.

“It was a mistake that followed a bad identification – at night, during the war, in very difficult circumstances. It shouldn’t have happened,” Halevi said without elaborating.

The attack on the convoy killed citizens of Australia, Britain and Poland, as well as Palestinians and a person with citizenship of the United States and Canada. According to WCK, the convoy was hit as it was leaving a warehouse in Deir Balah, where it had unloaded more than 100 tons of humanitarian food aid delivered to the Gaza Strip by sea.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the strike was tragic and unintentional, and the Israeli military promised an independent investigation into the circumstances.
