Hamas attacks do not justify collective punishment, UN's Guterres says

WASHINGTON — UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said on Sunday Hamas' attacks on Israel do not justify the collective punishment of Palestinians.

"You cannot use the horrific things that Hamas did as a reason for collective punishment of the Palestinian people," Guterres told CNN in an interview, adding that 101 UN personnel have died so far in the Hamas-Israel war that erupted after Hamas' Oct. 7 attack on southern Israel. — Reuters
