Cohen to Guterres at UN: In what world do you live?

Foreign Minister Eli Cohen on Tuesday has denounced UN chief Antonio Guterres over his criticism of Israel’s Gaza campaign, recounting graphic details of Hamas attacks on civilians, and naming children kidnapped by the terror group.

“Mr. Secretary General, in what world do you live?” Cohen tells Guterres in English at a special Security Council session on the crisis. “Definitely this is not our world.”

Cohen speaks after Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki on Tuesday deplored inaction by the UN Security Council to stop “massacres” in Gaza by Israel.

“The ongoing massacres being deliberately and systematically and savagely perpetrated by Israel — the occupying power against the Palestinian civilian population under illegal occupation — must be stopped,” Maliki said.
