UN Head Calls Civilian Victims in Gaza Unacceptable

United Nations, Nov 19 (Prensa Latina) UN Secretary General António Guterres today described as unacceptable the number of civilian victims in the conflict in Gaza following Israel's attacks on two schools of the Palestinian Refugee Agency (Unrwa).

Dozens of people –many women and children– were killed and injured while seeking safety in United Nations facilities, the head of the organization lamented in a statement released here.

Guterres said he was shocked by the attacks reported in less than 24 hours, while he insisted on his urgent call for a ceasefire.

“This war is causing an astonishing and unacceptable number of civilian victims every day, including women and children,” he added in that sense.

Hundreds of thousands of Palestinian civilians are seeking refuge in United Nations facilities across Gaza as fighting intensifies.

The head of the UN reaffirmed the inviolable premise to respect buildings protected by international law in the conflict that began on October 7.

At the same time, he expressed his deep gratitude for all the mediation efforts led by the Qatari government.
