UN chief: We don’t have power to stop Gaza war

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has said that the world body does not have the power to stop the Israeli regime’s war on Gaza, calling on those “who have the power to stop it to do it”.

“You cannot see so many people being killed, you cannot see so much suffering without feeling hugely frustrated…We don’t have the power to stop [the war in Gaza], I appeal to those who have the power to stop it to do it,” Guterres said on Saturday at a news conference in Egypt’s El Arish, according to Al Jazeera.

The UN chief visited the Rafah crossing, between Gaza and Egypt, as part of his annual “solidarity trip” to Muslim countries during the holy month of Ramadan, adding that his trip this year aims to “shine a spotlight on the pain of Palestinians in Gaza.”

Guterres also spoke about the humanitarian aid stockpiled on Egypt’s side of the border with Gaza as the Israeli regime continues to block the aid from entering the besieged Palestinian territory.

“That is more than tragic. It is a moral outrage”, he said, reiterating calls for an end to the Gaza war and warning that any further onslaught will make things worse.
