President Biden Conveys Condolences to Chef José Andrés After Tragic Gaza Airstrike

President Joe Biden reached out to chef José Andrés on Tuesday following an Israeli airstrike in Gaza that tragically claimed the lives of seven aid workers associated with Andrés’ World Central Kitchen.

The White House’s statement on the call came after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu acknowledged the unintentional nature of the airstrike.

During the call, President Biden expressed his condolences and acknowledged the significant contributions made by World Central Kitchen. White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre highlighted the president’s grief and appreciation for the organization’s efforts during Tuesday’s press briefing.

National Security Council spokesperson John Kirby also addressed the situation during the briefing, emphasizing the U.S. government’s expectation for a thorough and transparent investigation into the incident.

Kirby stated that there is currently no evidence to suggest that the strike was deliberate. He further stressed the importance of releasing the investigation’s findings to the public.

Kirby condemned the airstrike, expressing outrage over the loss of civilian humanitarian workers associated with World Central Kitchen. The organization, known for its relentless efforts to provide food assistance to those in need, has temporarily suspended its operations in Gaza following the tragic incident. The U.S. government remains committed to supporting humanitarian efforts in the region while seeking clarity and accountability for the airstrike.
