Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “U.N. Chief Appeals to Israelis and Palestinians in Gaza to End Violence” – below is their description.
The United Nations chief on Sunday appealed to Israelis and Palestinians in Gaza to immediately stop the “utterly appalling” escalation in fighting and “senseless cycle of bloodshed, terror and destruction” at the start of a high-level emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council.
Secretary-General Antonio Guterres told the virtual meeting on Sunday that “the United Nations is actively engaging all sides towards an immediate cease-fire.”
He warned that the most serious escalation in violence in Gaza in years “only perpetuates the cycles of death, destruction and despair, and pushes farther to the horizon any hopes of coexistence and peace.”Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
