World Central Kitchen Workers Killed In Gaza Airstrike

Chef Jose Andrés has released a statement demanding that the Israeli government put an end to what he described as “indiscriminate killing” in Gaza after the death of seven reported humanitarian workers at his non-profit, World Central Kitchen. Via the Daily Beast:

In a post to X, Andrés said he was “heartbroken and grieving” to learn about the tragic loss of several colleagues, who were killed in an Israeli airstrike on Monday while working to deliver food in the enclave, according to the aid organization.

“These are people…angels…I served alongside in Ukraine, Gaza, Turkey, Morocco, Bahamas, Indonesia. They are not faceless…they are not nameless,” Andrés said in his post. “The Israeli government needs to stop this indiscriminate killing.”

[…] In his statement on Monday, Andrés accused Israel of “using food as a weapon” of war in Gaza, and called on the government “to stop restricting humanitarian aid, stop killing civilians and aid workers.” “No more innocent lives lost. Peace starts with our shared humanity. It needs to start now,” he added.
