The Speaker of the Sejm expressed condolences to the family and friends of a Polish volunteer who died in an attack by the Israeli army on a humanitarian convoy in the Gaza Strip. He called for an “impartial investigation that will lead to a full explanation of the matter.”

Szymon Hołownia expressed his condolences in a statement published by the Chancellery of the Sejm on social media. He stressed that the lives of civilians on both sides – Palestinian and Israeli – must be protected in accordance with international law and international humanitarian law. “A terrible thing happened that should never have happened,” he said.

Seven volunteers of a humanitarian organization World Central Kitchen, including Pole Damian Soból, died in the Gaza Strip as a result of Israeli army fire. The incident occurred while workers were delivering food aid that had arrived in the Gaza Strip a few hours earlier by ship from Cyprus. The fatalities include citizens of Australia, Poland and Great Britain, and one person with American-Canadian citizenship. The Palestinian driver was also killed.
