UN Chief Says Gaza Deaths Show Something ‘Wrong’ With Israel Tactics

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said yesterday that the number of civilians killed in the Gaza Strip shows that there is something “clearly wrong” with Israel’s military operations against Hamas Palestinian militants.

Israel has vowed to wipe out Hamas after the militants killed 1,400 people and took more than 240 hostages in an Oct. 7 attack. Israel has struck Gaza – an enclave of 2.3 million people – from the air, imposed a siege and launched a ground invasion.

Palestinian officials said 10,569 people have now been killed in Gaza, 40% of them children.

While strongly condemning the Hamas attack on Israel, Guterres said that a distinction needs to be made between Hamas as one thing, and the Palestinian people as another. Failure to do so, he says, may result in humanity itself losing its meaning.

Guterres compared the number of children being killed in Gaza with the toll in conflicts around the world that he reports on annually to the U.N. Security Council. On Monday, he said Gaza was becoming “a graveyard for children.”
