MSF outraged and condemns killing of sixth staff member in Gaza

We are outraged and strongly condemn the killing of our colleague, Fadi Al-Wadiya, in an attack this morning in Gaza City. 

The attack killed Fadi, along with five other people including three children, while he was cycling to work, near the MSF clinic where he was providing care. 

Fadi was a 33-year-old physiotherapist and father of three. He joined MSF in 2018. Our thoughts are with his family and loved ones. 

Fadi’s loss marks the sixth killing of an MSF staff member in Gaza since Oct. 7, 2023. 

“Killing a healthcare worker while on his way to provide vital medical care to wounded victims of the endless massacres across Gaza is beyond shocking; it’s cynical and abhorrent.”

Caroline Seguin, MSF operations manager for Palestine.

This attack is yet another brutal example of the senseless killing of Palestinian civilians and healthcare workers in Gaza. We are continuing to verify the details of this horrific incident.
