Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, head of the World Health Organization (WHO), broke down in tears while describing the situation in Gaza, which was devastated by the Israeli attack. He also called for a ceasefire in a meeting on the health situation in Gaza in Geneva, Switzerland, on Tuesday.
Ghebreyesus, head of the World Health Organization, also lived through the war. The World Health Organization chief took refuge with his children in a bunker during the 1998-2000 war between Ethiopia and Eritrea.
In a meeting called for such a situation, the WHO chief said, ‘Because of my own experience, I believe that war does not bring any solution. War brings more, more hate, more suffering, more destruction. So let’s choose peace and resolve this issue politically.’
“I think you all talk about a two-state solution,” Gebreasus said, referring to the situation in Gaza as hellish. Hopefully this war will end with a real solution.’
The Palestinian independence group Hamas attacked Israel on October 7. 1,200 Israelis died in this attack. Since then, Israel has launched counter-attacks on Gaza. 25,000 Palestinians have been killed so far in the Israeli attack on Gaza.
