Magen David Adom Director General Eli Bin on Saturday night fired back at UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, after Guterres criticized Israel for attacking an ambulance near Shifa Hospital in Gaza.

The IDF explained on Friday that the ambulance was struck by an Israeli aircraft because it was being used by Hamas terrorists, not patients.

Guterres wrote on X on Saturday, “I am horrified by the reported attack in Gaza on an ambulance convoy outside Al Shifa hospital.”

“Now, for nearly one month, civilians in Gaza, including children and women, have been besieged, denied aid, killed and bombed out of their homes. This must stop,” he added.

Bin later replied to Guterres and wrote, “Our paramedics’ bodies were found with their medical gloves still on, murdered by Hamas in the midst of treating the wounded. Our ambulance drivers were executed in cold blood while sitting in the drivers’ seats.”

“Our ambulances were intentionally torched and blown up by Hamas terrorists to prevent any attempt to save victims,” added Bin.

“Antonio Guterres, why are these deliberate attacks on Magen David Adom, Israel’s Red Cross, not worthy of your ‘horror’? You will forever be remembered as the UN Secretary-General that aided terrorists and refused to condemn the murder of Israelis,” the MDA Director General concluded.

This is not the first time that Guterres has made controversial comments related to Israel. The UN chief recently caused an uproar when he said that Hamas’ attack on Israel “did not happen in a vacuum” and appeared to blame Israel for the attack.

“The Palestinian people have been subjected to 56 years of suffocating occupation. They have seen their lands steadily devoured by settlements and plagued by violence, their economies stifled, their people displaced and their homes demolished. Their hopes for a political solution to their plight have been vanishing,” he added.

After his remarks were widely condemned, Guterres claimed his comments were misinterpreted and insisted that he had indeed condemned Hamas.
