International News: United Nations Chief calls for humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza

Posted: Saturday, October 28, 2023. 2:12 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Today, U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said he was surprised by Israel’s escalation of the bombardments in Gaza.

According to Reuters, Guterres reiterated a call for an immediate humanitarian ceasefire for the delivery of aid.

“I was encouraged in the last days by what seemed to be a growing consensus in the international community … for the need of at least a humanitarian pause in the fighting,” Guterres said.

“Regrettably, instead of the pause, I was surprised by an unprecedented escalation of the bombardments and their devastating impacts, undermining the referred humanitarian objectives,” he added.

The U.N.’s chief comments follow Israel’s escalation in response to Hamas’ October 7 attack in Israel.

Since Friday evening, Gaza has been under an almost complete communications blackout.

“Given the breakdown in communications, I am also extremely concerned about the UN staff who are in Gaza to deliver humanitarian assistance,” Guterres expressed.

In addition, officials from the World Health Organisation (WHO) said the blackout was blocking ambulances and evacuations of patients and denying people safe shelter.
