U.N.: Middle East on’verge of abyss’ due to Israel-Palestine conflict

On Sunday, António Guterres, the Secretary-General of the United Nations, warned that the Middle East was “on the verge of the abyss.”

In a statement, Guterres also demanded that aid be let into the Gaza Strip as soon as possible and urged Hamas to return the hostages it had taken.

“By themselves, each of these goals are commendable.

They should not be used as negotiating chips, and they should be put into place because doing so is morally commendable.

Water, electricity, and other necessities are in short supply in Gaza, the UN head said.

According to Guterres, the United Nations has food, water, non-food products, medical supplies, and gasoline stored in Egypt, Jordan, Israel, and the West Bank that could be transferred to Gaza “within hours” provided employees could deliver it safely and without obstruction.

After Hamas fighters attacked Israeli civilians for the first time on October 7, the Israeli military began bombing local targets.

More than 1,300 people were slaughtered a week ago when the Palestinian militant organization that runs Gaza blasted thousands of rockets into Israel while hundreds of its militants broke border defenses in an extraordinary surprise onslaught.

More than 150 people were taken hostage by it.
