UN Chief Blasts Israel’s War in Gaza for ‘Killing Civilians on Unprecedented Scale’

UN Secretary-General António Guterres issued sharp words for Israel’s mass slaughter of civilians in Gaza. The Israeli onslaught in Gaza has killed more than 10,000 children in just over three months. 

“In Gaza, Israel’s military operations have spread massive destruction and killed civilians on a scale unprecedented during my time as Secretary General, including more than 150 members of our own staff,” Guterres said on Sunday. “This is heart-breaking, and utterly unacceptable.”

Tel Aviv launched its war in Gaza following a Hamas attack on southern Israel that killed nearly 1,200 people, including about 700 civilians. The Israeli forces have killed at least 25,000 people, at least 70% are innocent women and children. Thousands more are missing and are likely dead under the rubble.
