World Central Kitchen pauses work at its main kitchen in Rafah because of “ongoing attacks”

From CNN's Ibrahim Dahman

World Central Kitchen (WCK) said is pausing its operations at the humanitarian organization’s main kitchen in Rafah due to “ongoing attacks” in the face of Israeli operations there.

“In the face of Israeli operations in Rafah, countless families are being forced to flee once again. Ongoing attacks have forced us to pause work at our main kitchen in Rafah and relocate many of our community kitchens further north,” WCK said.

“The situation is dire but WCK’s Palestinian team—all directly impacted by the war—is showing up every day to support neighbors in need,” the post said, adding that almost 100,000 meals were provided a day earlier and would “increase capacity this week as 58 of our aid trucks have entered Gaza since Sunday.”

Seven aid workers from the non-profit were killed in an Israeli military strike in Gaza in April, an incident which drew international condemnation.
