"In this dramatic moment, as we are on the verge of the abyss in the Middle East, it is my duty as Secretary-General of the United Nations to make two strong humanitarian appeals,” he said.

"The hostages must be immediately released without conditions, and Israel must grant rapid and unimpeded access for humanitarian supplies and workers for the sake of the civilians in Gaza."

"Gaza is running out of water, electricity and other essential supplies.”

Guterres pointed out that the United Nations had stocks of food, water, non-food items, medical supplies and fuel, located in Egypt, Jordan, the West Bank and Israel, that could be dispatched within hours.

"To ensure delivery, our selfless staff on the ground, along with NGO partners, need to be able to bring these supplies into and throughout Gaza safely, and without impediment to deliver to those in need," Guterres concluded.
