Foreign Minister Eli Cohen tweets that the tenure of UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres is “a danger to world peace,” responding to the latter’s decision to invoke a rare clause in the UN charter to urge Security Council intervention in the Israel-Hamas war.

Guterres invoked Article 99 of the UN’s charter, which states that “the secretary-general may bring to the attention of the Security Council any matter which in his opinion may threaten the maintenance of international peace and security.”

Cohen claims that Guterres’s decision “constitutes support of the Hamas terrorist organization and an endorsement of the murder of the elderly, the abduction of babies and the rape of women.

“Anyone who supports world peace must support the liberation of Gaza from Hamas.”
