UN Mladenov expresses concern over Gaza escalation

Aug. 9, 2018 10:44 A.M. (Updated: Aug. 9, 2018 3:19 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- The United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, Nikolay Mladenov, expressed his deep concern concerning the escalation in the besieged Gaza Strip.

Nikolay Mladenov said in a statement issued on early Thursday, "I am deeply alarmed by the recent escalation of violence between Gaza and Israel."

He stressed "for months I have been warning that the humanitarian, security and political crisis in Gaza risk a devastating conflict that nobody wants. The UN has engaged with Egypt and all concerned parties in an unprecedented effort to avoid such a development."

He added that "if the current escalation however is not contained immediately, the situation can rapidly deteriorate with devastating consequences for all people."

Mladenov also mentioned that he will continue working on addressing all humanitarian issues in Gaza.
