Jacob Flickinger, 33, is named as American food charity worker killed by Israeli airstrike in Gaza, as outrage over bloodbath grows

An American nonprofit killed by an Israeli airstrike in Gaza has been named as 33-year-old Jacob Flickinger.

Flickinger was one of seven killed by an IDF attack as he and his colleagues at the World Central Kitchen worked to distribute aid to the Palestinians.

They were in a three-car convoy Monday evening when hellfire missiles hit their vehicles.

The incident has sparked international outrage and increased pressure on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over his response to the October 7 terrorist attacks that killed 1,200 Israelis.

In a statement, WC Kitchen called Flickinger one of seven “beautiful souls” killed in the attack.

“Their smiles, laughter and voices are forever enshrined in our memories,” said Erin Gore, CEO.

Flickinger has dual citizenship: the US and Canada.
