IDF reveals what went wrong in drone strike that killed 3 British aid workers


The Israeli military has dismissed two officers over drone strikes that killed seven aid workers, including three Brits.

The first strike was a case of false identity; the second and then the third were “grave mistakes”. Three Britons – John Chapman, James Henderson and James Kirby – were all killed in the attack on Monday.

35-year-old Damian Sobol from Poland, Australian Zomi Franckom, dual US-Canadian national Jacob Flickinger, and their young Palestinian driver Saifeddin Issam Ayad Abutaha, also died.

The 72-hour investigation has now revealed a series of catastrophic mistakes, with Israel’s military adding the strike ‘should not have happened’.
