Guterres renews the call for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza for humanitarian reasons

The Secretary-General of the United Nations, António Guterres, expressed his “concern and alarm” about reports that the Israeli occupation army intends to shift the focus of military operations to Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip. He said: “The situation in the Gaza Strip constitutes a bleeding wound in our collective conscience that threatens the region.” “In its entirety.”

In a speech before the United Nations General Assembly meeting on Wednesday, Guterres said, “Such a measure will greatly exacerbate the humanitarian nightmare with untold regional consequences. I call for an immediate ceasefire on humanitarian grounds and the unconditional release of all hostages.”

Guterres added – according to the United Nations website today / Wednesday -: “Nothing justifies the horrific attacks launched by Hamas against Israel on October 7, and there is no justification for collective punishment of the Palestinian people. However, Israeli military operations led to widespread destruction and death in Gaza.” “Broadly and at a speed unparalleled since I became Secretary-General.”
