Humanitarians killed, Al-Shifa hospital destroyed, Iranian consulate attacked: Israel thrown into a deadly spiral

Humanitarians killed, destruction of the Al-Shifa hospital, strikes on the Iranian consulate, bloodbath in Gaza, the response of the Hebrew state in question.

The international community reacted widely on Tuesday, the day after the death of seven employees of the NGO World Central Kitchen (WCK), killed in the Gaza Strip by an Israeli strike.

The United States, Australia, Spain and Poland, where the victims were from, are demanding explanations. China calls itself "shocked", while France expresses its "firm condemnation".

The Hebrew State recognized its responsibility on Tuesday, while pleading error. "A tragic incident occurred as our forces unintentionally struck innocent people in the Gaza Strip, a explained Benyamin Netanyahu, from the hospital where he was operated on Sunday evening for a hernia.

An open investigation

"This happens in a war, we will check until the end, we are in contact with the governments and will do everything to ensure that this does not happen again never again", he added, announcing the opening of an investigation.

The victims also include Palestinians and an American-Canadian. Everyone was traveling aboard two armored vehicles bearing the WCK logo. Video obtained by Reuters shows a large hole in the roof of a WCK vehicle with its interior burned.

"Delivering aid safely is no longer feasible"

Despite coordination with the Israeli army, the convoy was hit as it left the hangars of Deir al Balah to unload more than 100 tons of food delivered by sea to Gaza , adds the press release.

"This is not only an attack on WCK, it’s also an attack on the humanitarian organizations that intervene in the most complicated situations where food is used as a weapon of war. This is unforgivable, denounced the president of World Central Kitchen, Erin Gore.

The Hamas terrorist movement, for its part, presented the Israeli fire as a maneuver intended to hinder the distribution of humanitarian aid. World Central Kitchen, which served more than 42 million meals in 175 days in this famine-stricken territory, announced that it would be taking a break, along with other NGOs.

"Delivering aid safely is no longer feasible",explains one of them, Anera. This drama comes at a time when several food distributions have turned into drama and at a time when pressure is increasing on Benyamin Netanyahu, contested on the international scene, as in his own country.

An assessment revised upwards

The Gaza Ministry of Health, controlled by Hamas, announced a new toll of 32,916 people killed in the Gaza Strip since the start of the Israeli military operation in response to the October 7 attacks in Israel.

While in the north of the enclave, medical teams are currently extracting bodies from the rubble of the al-Chifa hospital, the largest in the Gaza Strip, ravaged by ;rsquo;intense fighting between the Israeli army and Palestinian militants, according to Le Monde.

The Israeli regime will be "punished"

Benyamin Netanyahu's strategy has raised even more questions since the strikes which destroyed the Iranian consulate in Damascus (Syria) on Monday evening, killing 13 people and raising fears of an escalation.< /p>

A raid attributed to Israel, even if the Hebrew State did not recognize its responsibility. "The perverse Zionist regime will be punished by our brave men, we will make him regret this crime and the others", reacted on Tuesday, the Iranian supreme leader, Aytollah Ali Khamenei.

"This cowardly crime will not go unanswered", added Iranian President Ebrahim Raïssi.
