«It is also important to recognize that the Hamas attacks did not come out of nowhere. The Palestinian people have been subjected to 56 years of suffocating occupation."

Clash at the UN and storm over the declarations of Secretary General Antonio Guterres , who even during his speech at the UN underlined that "the suffering of the Palestinian people cannot justify the appalling attacks by Hamas".

But even Hamas' attacks "cannot justify the collective punishment of the Palestinian people", added the UN secretary general, who in calling for an immediate ceasefire also deplored "the clear violations of international humanitarian law in Gaza" .

«No party – he specified, sending a clear message to Israel – is above international humanitarian law».

Open up heaven. The reaction from Tel Aviv was furious, calling for Guterres' resignation : «The UN secretary general who shows understanding for the campaign of mass extermination of children, women and the elderly is not fit to lead the UN. Resign immediately,” writes Israel's ambassador to the UN, Gilad Erdan , in X.

“There is no justification or point in speaking to those who show compassion for the most terrible atrocities committed against the citizens of Israel and the Jewish people. There are simply no words,” he adds.

The United States also openly sides with Tel Aviv: « The responsibility for October 7 lies with Hamas, only with Hamas. Not Israel nor innocent civilians ", declares the spokesperson of the National Security Council, John Kirby , commenting on Guterres' words.
