Israeli Foreign Minister Eli Cohen wrote in a post on X, "I decided to revoke the residence visa to Israel of the UN 'humanitarian' coordinator Lynn Hastings." Cohen cited the reason as her alleged failure to condemn Hamas, Israeli media reported.

He stated, "Someone who did not condemn Hamas for the brutal massacre of 1,200 Israelis, for the kidnapping of babies and the elderly and for the horrific acts of abuse and rape, and for using the residents of Gaza as human shields, but instead condemns Israel, a democratic country that protects its citizens, cannot serve in the UN and cannot enter Israel!"

He added, "We will no longer be silent in the face of the bias of the UN!".
