The Israel Defense Forces said the strike on a World Central Kitchen aid convoy was a “grave mistake” and the result of a “misidentification.”

SUVs and trucks bearing the distinctive logo of World Central Kitchen had become increasingly common in the Gaza Strip by late Monday, when three of WCK’s vehicles were traveling along on the coastal road used as a humanitarian corridor. The dynamic international food aid group has been one of the few organizations able to get supplies into the embattled enclave and distributed to hungry civilians from north to south.

They were one of the teams forming part of the pop-up maritime supply chain WCK had constructed, using barges, temporary piers and convoys to get food from Europe to aid points around Gaza. The group had just been part of a convoy that unloaded more than 100 tons of aid at a warehouse at Deir al-Balah, according to a WCK statement. Three cars were making a return trip to staging areas near the Egyptian border, heading along Al-Rasheed Road.
