Following Monday’s attack in Gaza that killed 7 people, including Aussie Zomi Frankcom, World Central Kitchen founder José Andrés has accused Israel of “targeting” the aid workers, claiming its forces went “systematically, car by car” with missile strikes. Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu accepted responsibility, but his comment “this happens in wartime” hasn’t gone down well, and aid has stopped in Gaza since the attack… Andrés says Israel was aware of their movements and “this was not just a bad luck situation where ‘oops’ we dropped the bomb in the wrong place”. PM Anthony Albanese has repeated his call for a full investigation, but Coalition leader Peter Dutton has refused to condemn Israel – a stance out of step with Oz’s allies. Overnight, US President Joe Biden spoke with Netanyahu, but despite recent tensions, reports say the US will continue to send weapons in support of Israel.
