British volunteer among five aid workers killed in Gaza Strip, Hamas-run office says

A British volunteer is among five aid workers who have died after an airstrike in the Gaza Strip, according to a Hamas-run government office.

Nationals from Poland and Australia were also killed, as well as one Palestinian.

They were employees for World Central Kitchen, which provides food for displaced Palestinians.

Ismail al Thawabta, a spokesperson for the Gaza government’s media office, said Israel was responsible for their deaths.

He added: “It is time for this war to stop immediately. It is time for the killing against civilians, against children, and against women to stop.”

Mr al Thawabta went on to urge “all countries of the world, all international organisations, and all human rights organisations to condemn this crime immediately”.
