World Central Kitchen (WCK), a charity that provides food to conflict-affected communities as well as the Gaza Strip, where there is a catastrophic food shortage, said seven of its team members were killed while working in the Gaza Strip.

“I personally asked Israeli Ambassador Yacov Livne for urgent explanations,” R. Sikorskis said on social networks, adding that he expressed “condolences to the family of our brave volunteer.”

The minister said Poland would launch its own investigation into the aid worker’s death.

The US-based charity said its team was traveling in the neutral zone in a convoy consisting of “two armored vehicles bearing the WCK logo and an unarmored vehicle” when it was struck.

“Poland does not support the failure to comply with international humanitarian law and the failure to protect civilians, including humanitarian aid workers,” the Polish foreign ministry said on Tuesday.

She did not specify the name and surname of the Polish citizen who died.

World Central Kitchen announced on Tuesday that it was suspending operations after the attack, which it said killed volunteers from Australia, Poland, the United Kingdom and the Palestinian territories, as well as a person with US and Canadian citizenship.

At the time, Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez demanded on Tuesday that Israel investigate the circumstances of the strike as soon as possible.

“I hope and demand that the Israeli government find out as soon as possible the circumstances of this brutal attack that killed seven humanitarian aid workers while trying to help,” he said during a visit to the Jabal el Hussein Palestinian refugee camp in neighboring Jordan.

At the time, Israel’s military on Tuesday pledged an investigation into the airstrike that killed seven aid workers in the Gaza Strip, saying it would “transparently share our findings.”

“We will be launching an investigation to look further into this serious incident.” This will help us reduce the risk so that such an event does not happen again,” military spokesman Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari (Daniel Hagari) said in a video message.
