Democrat House Member Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) said on Tuesday that Israel killed seven aid workers on purpose in an attack. Tlaib told people not to "look away" from her social media posts, which had pictures of the dead workers at the World Central Kitchen and a car that was reportedly badly damaged by the airstrike.

There was a picture of the car on Instagram with the words "The Israeli government knew that humanitarian workers were in this vehicle." Talib wrote this. "Do not turn away. Israel's government killed seven people who were doing good work (a war crime). That is how they knew where the workers were and killed them.

One of the strikes happened late Monday night, after the workers gave food to Palestinians in Gaza. According to reports, Israel knew where the convoy would be, but the strike still hit one of the vehicles in the group. WCK said that it plans its help work ahead of time with the Israel Defense Forces.

Israel has said that it hit the car by accident and is looking into what happened to make sure it does not happen again.

"Unfortunately, on the last day, there was a tragic event in the Gaza Strip where our forces hit innocent people by accident," Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a statement. "This happens during war. We are checking everything carefully and talking to the governments to make sure this does not happen again."

There were help workers from Poland, the UK, Australia, and the US. One person had citizenship in both the US and Canada.

On Tuesday, Tlaib also criticized the Biden government for not sticking with Israel in its war with Hamas. Tlaib has been very critical of both Israel and President Joe Biden for not asking for an end to the fighting and for giving Israel more money and other resources.

Tlaib wrote on Instagram, "Biden won Wisconsin by 0.63% in 2020." "The Biden campaign would rather lose to a candidate who has been charged with crimes and been removed from office twice than say no to genocide."

Young people are becoming less likely to vote for Biden because of how his government handled the war between Israel and Hamas. The Intercept reports that at least one in five Democratic voters in Wisconsin have said that the war in Gaza will affect how they vote in Tuesday's state primary.
