IP- UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres described the Israeli army's 'wholesale destruction of Gaza' as a ‘unprecedented’.

Iran PressAfrica: Speaking about Israel’s war on Gaza at the 19th Summit of the Non-Aligned Movement in Kampala, Uganda, the secretary-general of the UN said: The wholesale destruction of Gaza and the number of civilian casualties caused by the Israeli army in such a short period are totally unprecedented during my mandate.

"This includes 152 of our own UN staff members, a heartbreaking tragedy for our organization, for their families and for those they were serving in Gaza," he said.

"While humanitarian workers are doing their best to deliver relief, they face constant bombardments, daily dangers to themselves and their families and the enormous constraints by damaged roads, communication blackouts and access denials," UNSG highlighted.

"Meanwhile, disease and anger are deepening, people are dying not only from bombs and bullets but from lack of food and clean water, hospitals without power and medicine, and grueling journeys to even smaller slivers of land to escape the fighting. This must stop," said Guterres.
