UN Impels Gaza And Israel To Step Back From War Confrontation

The United Nations has sent out a pressing request for Israel and Gaza to step back from the edge of war after the most severe violence since 2014 broke along the border.


Nickolay Mladenov, the United Nations Middle East coordinator, asked both nations to reanimate and renew their friendly relationships, demanding the public of Palestine to continue their protests calmly and also demanding Israel to caution in its reaction.

He put light on the aggravating humanitarian circumstances in Gaza and also mentioned the unfavorable safety situations in the area.

The special coordinator delivered his speech just few hours after an incrementalist in violence in which the Gaza protesters attacked Israel with almost 200 projectiles and tons of airstrikes fired as a reaction, said Israel Defense Forces.

The battle comes after the increasing tensions along the border, going back to several episodes of protests organized by Hamas, an Islamic group that rules over Gaza strip.

Israel’s Prime Minister said that they will fight their attackers with great strength. Approximately 130 people have been martyred since the battle started.

Only two months ago, in May, 60 people, also including eight children, in Palestine were killed in just one day when protests turned deadly.

The UN representative spoke with reporters on Sunday. He said that every one of us has greatly efforted to step back from facing a war.

According to him, nobody neither wants nor needs the confrontation that all will lose. He sympathized with Gaza by saying that people in Gaza live a hard and troublesome life as they have less amount of money.

The economy has broken apart and sources like water and electricity are insufficient. We cannot just watch and sit doing nothing as two million people in Gaza are living under such unpleasant circumstances. He requested the Palestinians to discontinue the firings with rockets and kites and to give peace a chance.
