Israel: Guterres' tenure is a danger to world peace

Israeli Foreign Minister Eli Cohen slammed United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Wednesday for invoking Article 99 of the UN Charter over the Gaza crisis.

"Guterres' tenure is a danger to world peace. His request to activate Article 99 and a call for a cease-fire in Gaza constitutes support for the terrorist organization Hamas," the minister said on X. For his part, Israel's envoy to the United Nations, Gilad Erdan, echoed Cohen's remarks and added that after that move Guterres "reached a new moral low."

Earlier, Guterres invoked the above-mentioned article, in a rare move that had not been made in three decades, giving the secretary general the power to bring attention to matters that threaten international peace and security. The UN Security Council is expected to meet on Friday to discuss the situation in Gaza.
