Israel says the killing of the seven aid workers was a mistake – in fact, Israel is the mistake

New details emerged from the Monday night incident, which reportedly saw three cars from a World Central Kitchen convoy targeted one after another by drone-fired missiles, leaving seven humanitarian workers dead. The strike was far from the first against aid workers in the Strip since the outbreak of a war waged by Israel against Gaza.

World Central Kitchen founder says Israeli’s army “systematically” destroyed the three vehicles carrying seven aid workers and demands nations involved to launch an independent investigation into the killings.

Netanyahu said on Tuesday it mistakenly killed workers of the charity World Central Kitchen, drawing widespread condemnation from the United States and several allies. The dead included citizens of Australia, Britain, and Poland, as well as Palestinians and a dual citizen of the US and Canada.” [i]

IDF Chief of Staff Herzi Halevi issued an apology after midnight on Wednesday for a deadly Israeli strike on an aid convoy in Gaza, adding that it was a result of a “misidentification,” which was being investigated and learned from.”[ii]

What does he mean by a “misidentification”? Did the Zionist army think that in the car were only Palestinian women and children? Or that Israel did not predict the reaction from all over the globe, including Israel’s allies.

“Israel’s explanation for the deaths from an airstrike in Gaza of seven aid workers, including Australian woman Zomi Frankcom, was “not good enough,” Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese said on Thursday.”[iii]

At the same time, another war crime is being looked into:

“Human Rights Watch found no evidence of a military target in the vicinity of the building at the time of the Israeli attack, making the strike unlawfully indiscriminate under the laws of war. Israeli authorities have provided no justification for the attack. The Israeli military’s long track record of failing to credibly investigate alleged war crimes underscores the importance of the International Criminal Court (ICC)’s inquiry into serious crimes committed by all parties to the conflict.

“Israel’s unlawful airstrike on an apartment building on October 31 killed at least 106 people, including children playing football, residents charging phones in the ground-floor grocery store, and displaced families seeking safety,” said Gerry Simpson, associate crisis and conflict director at Human Rights Watch. “This strike inflicted massive civilian casualties without an apparent military target – one of scores of attacks causing overwhelming carnage, and highlighting the urgency of the ICC probe.” [iv] 

Down with the Zionist monster!

For Palestine red and free from the river to the sea!
