International News: United Nations Sec-Gen pays tribute to staff killed in Gaza

Posted: Saturday, December 23, 2023. 9:52 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: United Nations Secretary General António Guterres has paid tribute to the United Nations staff killed in the Gaza war.

“136 of our colleagues in Gaza have been killed in 75 days – something we have never seen in UN history,” Guterres said.

“Most of our staff have been forced from their homes,” he added.

“I pay tribute to them & the thousands of aid workers risking their lives as they support civilians in Gaza,” he expressed.

In addition, the U.N. Sec-Gen criticized Israel’s actions in the conflict.

“The way Israel is conducting this offensive is creating massive obstacles to the distribution of humanitarian aid inside Gaza,” he posted to social media.

On Friday, the U.N. Security Council passed a resolution calling for an increase in humanitarian aid for around 2 million people in need in the Gaza Strip.

Since Hamas attack on Israel on October 7 and Israel’s response declaring war, thousands of people have been killed and thousands more displaced.
