ZFA statement about the tragic death of Lalzawmi Frankcom

Official Statements

The Zionist Federation of Australia mourns the death of Australian humanitarian worker Lalzawmi Frankcom. 


ZFA President Jeremy Leibler said, “Ms Frankcom was part of the vital humanitarian resupply efforts by World Central Kitchen. Her death is a tragedy.”


Mr Leibler continued, “Israel has acknowledged that her convoy was hit by Israeli fire and has expressed deep regret. This was the result of a terrible mistake. Like Australia, Israel does not target civilians.”


Mr Leibler concluded, “The dual tragedy here is that like the innocent Israelis murdered by Hamas on 7 October and the innocent Palestinians since, Ms Frankcom’s death is ultimately the responsibility of Hamas. Hamas steals aid intended for Gazan civilians and its fighters disguise themselves as civilians in order to bring about this kind of tragedy. Hamas began this war. It will end as soon as Hamas surrenders and releases the remaining Israeli hostages.”
