Biden administration in touch with World Central Kitchen founder José Andrés following strike on aid workers

The Biden administration has been in touch with World Central Kitchen founder José Andrés in the wake of the deadly Israeli strike on an aid convoy, a senior administration official told CNN on Tuesday.

US officials have also had outreach with all levels of the Israeli government, as well as the United Nations, the senior administration source said.

These communications began when the US first learned of the deadly incident around 6 p.m. ET last night and has continued overnight and this morning, the official said. 

The official said the US noted the Israel Defense Forces spokesperson’s comments about the strike being investigated at the highest levels. The official stressed that the US expects a prompt, complete and transparent investigation that leads to “corrective measures” being taken. 

They said it is “imperative” that all possible measures be taken to protect and facilitate the safe distribution of humanitarian aid.
