Israel has revoked the visa of the UN humanitarian coordinator, Lynn Hastings. This was announced on X by the Israeli Minister of Foreign Affairs, Eli Cohen.
"We will no longer remain silent in the face of the prejudices of the United Nations," he wrote in a post. In detail, according to Minister Lynn Hastings, who is deputy special coordinator for the Middle East peace process and UN resident coordinator for the occupied Palestinian territories, she has not spoken out against Hamas for the acts committed during the October 7 attack.
"Someone who did not condemn Hamas for the brutal massacre of 1,200 Israelis, for the abduction of children and the elderly, and for the horrific acts of abuse and rape, and for using Gazans as human shields, but instead condemns Israel, a democratic country that protects its citizens, cannot serve in the United Nations and cannot enter Israel," The UN
Secretary-General's spokesman, Stephane Dujarric, confirmed to CNN that Israel revoked the visa of Lynn Hastings, the coordinator of the humanitarian response in Gaza, last week. However, the official said, Antonio Guterres has "full confidence in her".
"I can only reiterate the secretary-general's full confidence in Hastings, the way she has behaved and the way she has done her job," Dujarric said.
