Islamic Relief statement in response to attack on aid workers in Gaza


ALEXANDRIA, VA –  Islamic Relief USA (IRUSA) has released the following statement:

We are outraged by yet another deadly attack on humanitarian workers trying to prevent a man-made famine. Our thoughts and prayers are with everybody at World Central Kitchen.

Six months of Israeli bombing has turned Gaza into the world’s most dangerous place to deliver aid. More than 200 aid workers, mostly Palestinians, have been killed – the deadliest ever crisis for humanitarian workers.

Children are starving to death because Israel is preventing sufficient aid from entering by land, and now humanitarian workers are being killed while they try to deliver lifesaving food that has been shipped in by sea.

Only an immediate ceasefire and an end to Israel’s siege can prevent famine and mass loss of life now.
