Bennett speaks to UN chief regarding Israeli-Palestinian Tensions

Published on

The Prime Minister of Israel, Naftali Bennett, spoke by phone with Antonio Guterres, Secretary General of the United Nations (UN), about the recent developments in Israeli-Palestinian tensions.

According to Xinhua news agency Xinhua, Bennett said Saturday that Israel was the “stabilizing force” in the conflict.

A statement by the premier office quoted him saying that “if we didn’t uphold law, tens and thousands of Muslims wouldn’t be able to prayer.”

His comments came after weeks and weeks of tensions in Jerusalem, where Israeli police and Palestinians clashed again at Al-Aqsa mosque.

According to the statement, the Israeli Prime Minister expressed disappointment at the UN’s inability to condemn Israel’s firing of rockets at Israel.

After months of silence, several rockets from Gaza were fired into Israel in the last week. Israel responded by temporarily closing the only pedestrian crossing between Gaza and Israel. However, thousands of Gazans still cross into Israel every day to earn a living.

Conflicts at the holy place led to an 11 day war between Israel & the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip in 2021.
