Middle East conflict live updates: U.S. condemns strike on World Central Kitchen as aid groups pull back


Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin “expressed his outrage” in a call with Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant over an Israeli strike on a World Central Kitchen aid convoy that killed seven people, including an American, according to a readout of the call. U.N. relief agencies have suspended nighttime operations in Gaza for at least 48 hours to make a security assessment since the strike, a spokesperson said, after WCK and at least two other groups said they would pause operations in Gaza.
