Doha – United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, on Saturday, condemned the “unprecedented escalation” in the Zionist occupation’s bombing of the Gaza Strip, renewing his call for an “immediate humanitarian ceasefire.”
Guterres said, during a visit to Doha: “Unfortunately, instead of a truce, I was surprised by an unprecedented escalation in bombing and its devastating results, which undermines humanitarian goals,” expressing his “concern over the interruption of communications in the Gaza Strip, as well as his concern about the United Nations employees present in Gaza.” To provide humanitarian aid.
He added: “I reiterate my strong call for an immediate ceasefire on humanitarian grounds and to provide humanitarian relief at a level that is compatible with the dire needs of the people in Gaza, where a humanitarian catastrophe is unfolding before our eyes.”
The Gaza Strip has been subjected to a stifling siege since 2007, but the Zionist occupation has tightened the siege on the Strip since the start of the aggression 22 days ago, to include cutting off electricity and water, and preventing the entry of basic materials and fuel, ending it yesterday by completely cutting off the communications and Internet networks creating a complete paralysis in the capabilities of the health system and the movement of ambulances and medical teams.
The occupation warplanes have continued to launch raids on the Gaza Strip since October 7, resulting in the death of 7,814 Palestinians, in addition to the wounding of about 20,000, according to an infinite statistic.
Medical sources said that the occupation forces, since last night and Saturday dawn, committed 53 massacres in the Gaza Strip, in the most violent and severe bombardment since the start of the aggression 22 days ago.
