Israel claims they are ‘committed to international law’ as Sunak wants answers to the Briton killed in Gaza

Since 7 October 2023 Israelis strikes have killed and injured thousands of Palestinians in their military offensive in the Gaza Strip.

More than 32,552 Palestinians have been killed and over 74,980 have been injured due to the Israeli air strikes, but yet the Israeli Defence Force claim they are a “professional military” who are “committed to international law.”

Seven aid workers from World Central Kitchen (WCK) who are a non-profit organisation (NGO) have been killed in Gaza following an air strike.

WCK said that the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) carried out the air strike even though they were “co-ordinating” their movements with the Israeli military.

IDF spokesperson Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari offered “deepest condolences” to the charity World Central Kitchen amid the “tragic” deaths of their aid workers.

Hagari added, “We also express sincere sorrow to our allied nations who have been doing and continue to do so much to assist those in need.”

Hagari insists the IDF is “a professional military committed to international law,” he added the incident is being investigated “at the highest levels to understand the circumstances of what happened and how it happened.”

He praised World Central Kitchen for doing “critical work... on the frontlines of humanity.”

“We will get to the bottom of this and we will share our findings transparently,” he said.

The British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has called for Israel to “investigate what happened” as he wants answers.

Sunak said on Tuesday that he is “shocked and saddened” over the reports that seven aid workers have been killed overnight in Gaza.

The Prime Minister said, “We are asking Israel to investigate what happened urgently, because clearly there are questions that need to be answered.

“My thoughts are with their friends and family.

“They are doing fantastic work bringing alleviation to the suffering that many are experiencing in Gaza.

“They should be praised and commended for what they are doing.

“They need to be allowed to do that work unhindered and it is incumbent on Israel to make sure they can do that.”
