U.S. Hasn’t ‘Seen Indication’ That Israel Violated International Humanitarian Law

White House National Security Communications Advisor John Kirby said on Sunday that the United States has not seen any indication that Israel violated any international laws in its operation against Hamas inside Gaza.

During an appearance with CBS News’ “Face The Nation” with Margaret Brennan, Kirby explained, “We have a normal process the State Department runs and governs, where they take a look at incidents, particularly those that are being- operations being conducted by partner countries. And they look at them and they assess them against international law. And they’re doing that in real-time, Margaret. So, some of them may have looked at and concluded, some they’re still looking at it.”

“Thus far, as I said the other day, we’ve not seen any indication they have violated international humanitarian law. But we take this seriously. They take it seriously at the State Department. And we’ll keep looking at this,” he added.

Kirby’s remarks come as Hamas’ unprecedented attack on Israel which spurred the war hit six months. It also follows an announcement by the Israel Defense Forces in which it took responsibility for an April 1 airstrike in Gaza that killed seven aid workers for World Central Kitchen.

The strike reportedly happened while the organization was carrying out an operation to transfer humanitarian aid from the WCK to the Gaza Strip. According to an independent investigation into the incident carried out by the Joint Chiefs of Staff’s Fact-Finding and Assessment Mechanism, the markings on the vehicles the WCK workers traveled in were not visible to the cameras monitoring them.

Owning up to their error, IDF Spokesperson Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari said, “This is a tragedy. It was a terrible chain of errors, and it should never have happened. The IDF takes full responsibility for this regrettable loss of life.”

He then vowed that measures were being put in place to ensure that a situation like that does not see a repeat.
