The number of civilians killed in Gaza was “unparalleled and unprecedented” compared to any conflict since 2017, when United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres took office, he said on Monday (20).
“What is clear is that in just a few weeks we had thousands of children dead. So that’s what matters. We are witnessing a killing of civilians that is unparalleled and unprecedented in any conflict since I have been Secretary-General,” Guterres said during a press conference.
When asked about his vision for the day ahead in Gaza, Guterres rejected the possibility of a UN protectorate in the enclave, calling instead for a “multilateral approach” that will ultimately lead to a two-state solution.
In international law, a protectorate consists of the legal relationship established between a protecting state and a state protected against any violation of international law.
“Everyone needs to come together to create the conditions for a transition, allowing the Palestinian Authority, a strengthened Palestinian Authority, to take responsibility in Gaza,” he said.
