Guterres expresses his “profound indignation and annoyance at the increasing number of civilian casualties in Gaza.”

Baghdad The Secretary-General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, expressed his “deep indignation and annoyance” due to the number of civilian casualties in Gaza, and the Israeli air force’s destruction of a building housing offices for international media in the Strip.

“Guterres was extremely disturbed by the destruction of an Israeli air strike on a high-rise building in Gaza City that housed the offices of several international media organizations,” Secretary-General’s Spokesperson Stephane Dujarric said in a statement.

He added that Guterres expressed his “indignation at the increasing number of civilian casualties, especially the killing of ten members of the same family, including children, in an Israeli air strike last night in the Shati refugee camp in Gaza.”

He pointed out that “the Secretary-General reminds all parties that any blind targeting of civilian and media facilities constitutes a violation of international law and should be avoided at all costs.”
