President Joe Biden has issued a stern ultimatum to Israel in the wake of the recent World Central Kitchen strikes. The incident, which resulted in the tragic loss of seven aid workers, has drawn sharp international criticism and prompted the U.S. to demand immediate changes to ensure the protection of civilians and humanitarian efforts in the region.

The ultimatum came after an Israeli military strike on Monday, which led to the death of seven humanitarian workers from the World Central Kitchen, a charity known for its vital food aid operations. The Biden administration, expressing its outrage, has called for swift action from Israel to prevent further civilian casualties and to facilitate the safe passage of humanitarian aid into Gaza.

President Biden's message to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was clear: Israel must take concrete steps to safeguard civilian lives and allow for the unimpeded delivery of essential supplies. The U.S. expects to see significant improvements in the humanitarian situation in Gaza within the coming hours and days. Failure to do so could result in changes to the U.S.'s current support for Israel's military campaign.

We all await Israel's response to this ultimatum, hoping for a commitment to protect those who are most vulnerable and to uphold the principles of humanitarian aid during these tumultuous times.
