United Nations Secretary General António Guterres on Wednesday visited the Gaza border region together with Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon and IDF Deputy Chief of Staff Aviv Kochavi.

During the helicopter trip from Jerusalem to Gaza, Guterres received a special briefing on security issues in southern Israel. He then visited a Hamas terror tunnel and met with residents of the border communities.

“Hamas continues to arm itself in order to harm Israel as it exploits the generous humanitarian aid provided by the international community,” Ambassador Danon told the Secretary General.

“Hamas has turned the residents of Gaza into hostages and is investing its resources into digging murderous terror tunnels. At the same time, the Israeli residents of the border communities have stood strong in the face of terror threats, as they build prosperous communities and help further develop the region for the betterment of the next generation.”

Later on Wednesday, Guterres will visit UN facilities in Gaza.
