UAE pauses aid to Gaza by sea after Israeli strike kills aid workers

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has paused humanitarian aid efforts through a maritime corridor from Cyprus to Gaza, pending a full investigation into the deaths of the seven World Central Kitchen (WCK) aid workers.
 
Last month, the first maritime humanitarian aid shipment was unloaded on to shore in Gaza, in cooperation with WCK and financed by the UAE.
 
In a statement, the UAE expressed profound condemnation over Israel's strike on the aid convoy.
 
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said the convoy they were in was hit unintentionally.
