Guterres 'gravely concerned' by violence in West Bank

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres is "gravely concerned about the escalation of violence in the occupied West Bank," Spokesperson for the Secretary-General, Stephane Dujarric, said on Monday.

According to Dujarric, the concern stems from the fact that security operations continue to escalate and intensify, with a higher number of "fatalities and arrests," but also from the larger number of attacks on Israelis by Palestinians.

"The UN continues to appeal to Israeli Forces to avoid further action that would exacerbate the already catastrophic humanitarian situation in Gaza and to spare civilians from more suffering," the spokesperson said.
