The World Health Organization has condemned the catastrophic situation in Gaza. This was reported in a report by Al-Jazeera, a Qatar-based media outlet, on Monday.

The World Health Organization has called for immediate unhindered access to Gaza. Earlier, the head of the organization Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus called the current situation in Gaza as catastrophic.

According to Al-Jazeera’s report, tomorrow Tuesday the UN General Assembly will vote on a resolution demanding an immediate humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza.

Meanwhile, UN forces in Lebanon have warned that the conflict could escalate as Israel and Hezbollah step up air and drone strikes.

Earlier, the United States vetoed a resolution brought to the UN Security Council calling for an immediate humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza and the unconditional release of hostages.

Thirteen of the 15-member UN Security Council voted in favor of the ceasefire resolution. The United Kingdom abstained from voting. Ultimately, the US vetoed the proposal. A resolution cannot be passed if the five permanent members of the Security Council vote against the veto.

“It’s not balanced,” US Ambassador to the United Nations Robert Wood said of the ceasefire proposal. It did not reflect the reality.’

Meanwhile, Russia strongly criticized the US veto. Because of this, there has been a massive destruction and humanitarian disaster in Gaza, Russian ambassador to the United Nations, Dmitry Polyansky, complained.

Earlier, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres invoked Article 99 of the UN Charter to propose a ceasefire in the Security Council. Under Article 99, the UN Secretary-General may bring to the attention of the Security Council any matter which he considers to be a threat to the maintenance of international peace and security.

In the last 24 hours, 297 people have died in the Israeli attack in Gaza. About 18,000 Palestinians have been killed and 49,500 injured in Israeli bombardment since October 7. Since the beginning of the war, Hamas attacks have killed approximately 1,200 people in Israel.
