Britain demands explanation from Israel after airstrike in Gaza

British Foreign Secretary Lord Cameron has called for a “full, transparent explanation” from Israel after an airstrike in Gaza that left seven aid workers dead, including a British national.

He said: “The news of the air strike that killed World Central Kitchen (WCK) aid workers in Gaza is deeply distressing.

“British Nationals are reported to have been killed; we are urgently working to verify this information and will provide full support to their families.

“These were people who were working to deliver life-saving aid to those who desperately need it.

“It is essential that humanitarian workers are protected and able to carry out their work.

“We have called on Israel to immediately investigate and provide a full, transparent explanation of what happened.”  (dpa/NAN)
