UN Chief on 3-day visit to Israel, Palestinian territories

UN Chief on 3-day visit to Israel, Palestinian territories”

Israel will press UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres on what it says is Hezbollah's arms buildup in Lebanon during his first visit to the Jewish state since taking office, the deputy foreign minister said on Sunday.

Gaza has been suffering from an acute electricity crisis caused by political disagreements between the West Bank-based Palestinian Authority and Hamas movement, which controls Gaza.

Stephane Dujarric, the spokesperson for the United Nations head, said that the objective of his trip was "to engage directly with Israeli and Palestinian people and their leaders" about "finding a long overdue peaceful resolution to the conflict".

Guterres is also scheduled to meet with Israeli President Reuven Rivlin as well as to visit both Israel's Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum and the gravesite of the late former Israeli President Shimon Peres.

Israeli deputy foreign minister Tzipi Hotovely told public radio on Sunday: "Haley was right". "It's time to place the issue squarely on the table and address it head-on", Hotovely said, threatening funding cuts for the body if changes were not implemented. "Against the efforts to damage Israel at the United Nations, we constantly portray positive Israeli endeavors, and are glad to share our information and promote cooperation for the sake of a better future". "Led by Nikki Haley, they have made clear that they will not tolerate bias against us and will no longer be giving an open check". The UN Secretary-General will then visit Gaza on Wednesday, where he plans to meet with officials in the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) as well as to investigate the operations of other UN projects in the strip.
