On the night of April 3, Lieutenant General Herzi Halevi, Chief of the IDF General Staff, stated that preliminary investigations suggest the death of seven World Central Kitchen (WCK) employees resulted from an error in identifying the target during difficult battle conditions.

"This shouldn't have happened," he remarked.

The IDF is conducting an internal investigation into the incident.

On April 2, in the Deir al-Balah area, central Gaza Strip, three vehicles belonging to the international organization World Central Kitchen were targeted from the air. This resulted in the death of seven aid workers.

According to Hamas, citizens of Britain, Poland, and Australia were among those killed in the Israeli strike. The Palestinian driver also died in the attack. The nationality of another victim is yet to be confirmed.

In response to the deaths of its workers in Gaza, WCK management stated, "This is a tragedy. Aid workers and civilians should never be targeted."
