Gaza has a long history marred by carnage, often  entangled in holy wars. Sadly, amidst this ongoing conflict, a group of workers for the renowned Chef Jose Andres found themselves caught in the crossfire.

Chef Andres, known for his humanitarian  efforts, established the World Central Kitchen in Gaza to provide food and aid to Palestinians. However, during a recent airstrike, five members of his staff tragically lost their lives.

The future of the World Central Kitchen in Gaza remains  uncertain. Considering the danger faced by Chef Andres and his team, it would be prudent to reevaluate the continuation of this project.

From TMZ:

World Central Kitchen did not identify the workers who were lost in the airstrike, but did claim the staffers died "while working to support our humanitarian food delivery efforts in Gaza." WCK also alleged their workers were taken out during an Israeli Defense Forces attack.

The non-profit added ... "This is a tragedy. Humanitarian aid workers and civilians should NEVER be a target. EVER."

José shared WCK's statement to his own account on X Monday evening, and penned his own tribute to the fallen aid workers.

He wrote ... "I am heartbroken and grieving for their families and friends and our whole WCK family. These are people…angels…I served alongside in Ukraine, Gaza, Turkey, Morocco, Bahamas, Indonesia. They are not faceless…they are not nameless."

Chef Andres adds, "The Israeli government needs to stop this indiscriminate killing. It needs to stop restricting humanitarian aid, stop killing civilians and aid workers, and stop using food as a weapon. No more innocent lives lost. Peace starts with our shared humanity. It needs to start now."
