Israel showed its displeasure after UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres dismissed Israel’s accusations against Hamas for initiating the latest conflict. He went on to suggest that the attacks were not occurring in a vacuum, implying they had been caused by external factors.

Guterres has since backed away from his earlier sentiments, stressing his commitment to opposing anti-Semitism and maintaining Israel’s right to defend itself.
