Occupier Israel has been accused of spreading false information about UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres on the issue of the ongoing war in the besieged Gaza. Guterres himself made this accusation.

On Monday (June 25) at a press conference held at the United Nations headquarters in New York, he said, without mentioning Israel by name, “a rumor has been circulating recently that I have never expressed anger or condemnation towards Hamas (in the ongoing Hamas-Israeli war in Gaza). I have even heard that I am a supporter of Hamas.

Guterres said, “But the reality is that I have publicly and officially condemned Hamas at least 102 times since the start of the war in Gaza. 51 times in official UN speeches and the remaining 51 times on social media platforms.’

Incidentally, Israel’s UN Ambassador Gilad Erdan recently accused the UN of favoritism towards Hamas in a press conference.

“His (Guterres) only goal is to help Hamas survive,” Erdan said. We find it reprehensible that the Secretary-General refuses to adhere to UN standards and gives distorted interpretations of recent events. Antonio Guterres is a sponsor of terrorists and should resign today.’

Since the end of the Hamas-Israel war in Gaza on October 7, the United Nations has passed a cease-fire resolution several times. Israel has opposed each proposal.

After the start of this war, Palestine began to seek permanent membership of the United Nations. That effort also failed, largely because of Israel.

Since the start of this war, Israel has been in tension with the United Nations. Israel alleges that staff working in various UN agencies in Palestine are directly involved in this war; But UN is not taking action against them. On the other hand, according to the United Nations, Israel is spreading these rumors without being able to show the necessary evidence for its allegations.
