UN warns of ‘catastrophic consequences’ in Gaza

The UN’s special coordinator for the Middle East peace process expressed concerns Tuesday that violence in Gaza may lead to devastating consequences, Anadolu Agency reports.

“I am concerned that we may, once again, be facing another very dangerous escalation of violence in Gaza, with potentially catastrophic consequences,” Nickolay Mladenov told the UN Security Council. “The last two days show how precariously close we came to the brink of war once again.”

Mladenov, who also serves as the UN Secretary-General’s personal representative to the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) and the Palestinian Authority, said the firing of rockets by Israel violates international law and it must stop.

The Israeli military launched a wave of airstrikes Monday across the Gaza Strip following rocket fire from the enclave that injured seven Israelis north of Tel Aviv.
