Seven aid workers were killed when their convoy was hit by an Israeli airstrike overnight, as it was leaving their Deir al-Balah warehouse, amid ongoing operations delivering aid supplies inside Gaza.

The food charity World Central Kitchen (WCK) said they had coordinated the convoy’s movements with the Israel Defense Forces.

In response to the strike, the IDF stated that it “is conducting a thorough review at the highest levels to understand the circumstances of this tragic incident.” 

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Tuesday the aid workers were killed in an “unintended strike.”

The destroyed vehicles bear the hallmarks of a precision strike, which only the IDF has the capability to conduct in the region.

"We will investigate this ~~war crime~~ incident at our highest levels!"

Spoiler alert: they will find that they did not do anything wrong.

[-] FuglyDuck 13 points 3 weeks ago

And, indeed, find some medals are due to passed around.

You know. For stuff.

By "unintended," he means that he did not intend for people to realize it was a precision strike.

[-] Maggoty 34 points 3 weeks ago

I figure he means they didn't know this convoy had western passport holders. They thought they were just blowing up more Palestinian aid workers.

[-] FlyingSquid 31 points 3 weeks ago

I don't even think he means that. As the article says, they notified the IDF of their movements.

[-] Maggoty 41 points 3 weeks ago

Off the top of my head this is the fourth time they've hit a convoy that coordinated it's movements. Not including blowing up the bakery that just had a delivery and firing at the crowd trying to get food. And that's just what I'm aware of. This is also the most dangerous war for aid workers in the modern period.

[-] [email protected] 51 points 3 weeks ago

Fuck Israel.

[-] [email protected] 45 points 3 weeks ago

I find it extremely hard to believe they didn't know who was in that vehicle.

The same day, they hit a group in Syria containing high-level Iranian generals. The US didn't even know about it.

[-] [email protected] 63 points 3 weeks ago

It's been widely reported that World Central Kitchen had been coordinating movements with the IDF. They , the IDF, knew who was in those vehicles.

I always prefer to apply Hanlon's razor ( Never attribute to malice what can be explained with incompetence ) but shits been looking malicious for a long time now

[-] FlyingSquid 42 points 3 weeks ago

Looking forward to tomorrow when the IDF claims that the World Central Kitchen staff were Hamas terrorists.

Who knew that every single person inside Gaza's borders was a Hamas terrorist?

[-] infectoid 13 points 3 weeks ago

Plot twist. Hamas terrorists hacked into IDF infrastructure and dropped the bombs on themselves to make the IDF look bad.

Either that or they’ll find that elements of the IDF are Hamas.

Hanlon’s razor is reversed for sociopaths.

Precision Guided Missles.

Troops need to point a laser at the target before firing. They knew what they were doing.

I wonder if this halts the food aid going into Gaza as this gets investigated?

Winner winner chicken dinner!

[-] dustyData 16 points 3 weeks ago

The point is to kill by hunger. It's as open a war crime as you can get.

[-] [email protected] 41 points 3 weeks ago

They targeted them intentionally. Their main motive is to teach WCK a lesson and set example for other humanitarian organizations to stay away from Gaza. Ultimately IDF is succeeded as WCK halting its operation. Now as always US daddy will come to their defence and prove Israel is innocent.

This israeli terror airstrike was a massive success. World Food Kitchen and others stopped aid workers from delivering food to Gaza at a time Palestinians are already starving to death. The only thing that would have negative impact on israel is if Biden undertook action.

But and as expected Genocide Joe is covering for israel so they are getting away with it.

Biden 'outraged' by aid workers killed, but no indication Israeli strike deliberate

[-] TechNerdWizard42 4 points 3 weeks ago

Exactly and I can't figure out if people are just too stupid or too entrenched in propaganda. Of course there will be news of it being a "mistake". Or 3 mistakes. And nothing will change. Resolutions will be passed. Statements will be issued. Thoughts and prayers. Nothing will change for Israel, the US will continue supplying death machines to these evil people. But now less aid goes to those they deem inhuman.

It was a precision strike in more ways than one. People who can't realize it was no mistake at all, baffle the mind.

[-] [email protected] 10 points 3 weeks ago

Geeze, this is the first time I've heard from these guys seince the escalation of the genocide. Have they been doing work through this crises?

[-] Maggoty 24 points 3 weeks ago* (last edited 3 weeks ago)

They got a makeshift pier built and delivered a ton of aid by ship. All coordinated with Israel. This was one of their first convoys out of that warehouse. (Also coordinated with Israel)

Looks like I got banned (temporarily? still stupid) and had a bunch of comments removed from the news community on lemmy.ml for posting links to the truth in the comments on this same article, oh well 🤷

Those people got REALLY pissed that I gave them evidence Trump would make it worse

Apparently a bunch of links is uncivil?

Seems like I also can't report the other (actually aggressive and insulting) participants in a community I'm banned from. Great design choice there lemmy!

Lemmy.ml is run by a buncha tankies

Didn't they say the same thing about Al Asqa Hospital?
