Guterres: 'Worst civilian killings in Gaza in my mandate'

Responding to a question about why he does not denounce Israel's attacks on UNRWA schools as war crimes, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres explained that he does not have the mandate to classify such acts, but it is clear that thousands of children have been killed in a matter of weeks and "we are witnessing a killing of civilians that is unparalleled and unprecedented in any conflict since I have been Secretary-General."

"

I think it's important to have a strengthened Palestinian Authority that takes responsibility in Gaza. I understand that the Palestinian Authority cannot come with Israeli tanks to the Strip, which means that the international community must consider a transition period. I don't think a UN protectorate is a solution, but we need a multi-stakeholder approach in which different countries, different entities, will cooperate," Guterres said in response to an ANSA question about the day after in Gaza.
