The Israeli Ambassador to the United Kingdom Tzipi Hotovely has been summoned to Britain's foreign office over the deaths of seven World Central Kitchen aid workers in Gaza.

Seven WCK workers, including citizens of the United Kingdom, Poland, and Australia, were killed during the Israeli bombing in the Gaza Strip. Britain's foreign office condemned the deaths and announced that they would demand explanations from Israel. In addition, they called for more humanitarian aid in the Gaza Strip.

Earlier, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu acknowledged that the Israeli Defense Forces were responsible for the strike on the World Central Kitchen car.

"Unfortunately, there was a tragic incident – an unintentional strike by our forces on civilians in the Gaza Strip. Such things happen in war. We are examining every detail, in contact with governments, and will do everything to prevent such incidents from recurring," Netanyahu said.

Israel's Foreign Ministry told The Times of Israel that Hotovely reiterated Netanyahu's comments.
