Guterres: The Middle East is on the brink of abyss

Oct 17 2023

ARK News… The Secretary-General of the United Nations called on Hamas to release the hostages and Israel to allow humanitarian aid to enter Gaza, warning that the Middle East is on the brink of abyss.

“Each of these goals is justified in itself,” said UN Secretary-General António Guterres. “They should not be turned into bargaining chips and should be implemented because they are the right thing to do.”

He pointed out that "it is my duty to make these two calls at this dramatic moment, while we are on the brink of abyss in the Middle East."

Guterres added, "United Nations stocks of food, medical and fuel supplies in Egypt, Jordan, the West Bank and Israel can be sent to Gaza within hours."

On October 7, 2023, the Al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of the Hamas Movement, directed thousands of rockets towards the Israeli depths. Israel responded with a series of air attacks, and according to the latest statistics, the number of casualties among both sides reached more than “10” thousand people.
