For the last 56 years, the Palestinian people have been suffering from the occupation of their land. Their infrastructure was disrupted and people were displaced. Houses were attacked. António Guterres stated that their hopes for a political solution to the issue have been dashed.
This is a blatant violation of international law on the part of Israel. Human rights are violated. But Hamas’ attack can never be justified. Premeditated killing and beating people can never be justified. UN chief Antonio Guterres stated in the UN Security Council meeting that it is not justifiable to punish the Palestinian people for this attack.
The situation in Gaza is getting worse by the hour. The situation in Gaza has raised concerns across the region. Airstrikes continue in southern Gaza. Guterres said he was deeply concerned about violations of international human rights laws.
Israel reacted strongly to Guterres’ statement. Israeli Foreign Minister Eli Kohn asked the UN chief what world he was living in. He said the civilized world must stand with Israel to defeat Hamas. Israel has demanded the resignation of UN Secretary Antonio Guterres. UN envoy Gilad Erdan said Guterres’ statement was shocking. Israeli Foreign Minister Eli Cohen canceled a planned meeting with Guterres over the statement.
The death toll in Israel’s attack on Gaza has exceeded 6,000. Thousands of women and children were killed. The death toll is likely to rise as the health condition of those undergoing treatment is critical. Most of the hospitals in Gaza have stopped working due to lack of supplies including medicine.
The Hamas-controlled Ministry of Health has reported that 5,700 Palestinians have been killed so far in the attack.
