November 14, 2019

The UN's Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, Nickolay Mladenov says ongoing escalation between Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Israel has undermined efforts to improve socio-economic conditions in Gaza.

In a statement, he said the indiscriminate launching of rockets and mortars against population centers is absolutely unacceptable and must stop immediately.

Mladenov stressed that there could be no justification for any attacks against civilians.
