Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez demanded today, Tuesday, that the Israeli occupation government provide “explanations” regarding the "brutal" attack carried out by “Israel” that resulted in the deaths of seven relief workers affiliated with the “World Central Kitchen” charity organization.

Sánchez, during a press conference held at one of the UNRWA schools in Amman, added that the aid workers died while carrying out what this non-governmental organization has dedicated itself to for years: feeding people amidst much destruction, expressing his deepest condolences.

Earlier today, The UK has summoned the “Israeli” ambassador after the death of British aid workers in a strike in the Gaza Strip - a statement by the Foreign Ministry said.

The Foreign Ministry wants to deliver the country’s “unequivocal condemnation” of the killing of three British and four other staff of the “World Central Kitchen” charity organization in a missile strike in Gaza.

"I requested a quick and transparent investigation, shared with the international community, and full accountability," junior foreign minister Andrew Mitchell said in a statement issued after the meeting.
