Israel Lambasts UN Chief For Invoking Article 99 In Rare Move; Pressure Mounts On U.S. | Gaza War

Israel has lashed out at the UN secretary-general for invoking article 99 over the Gaza war. This is the first time in Antonio Guterres' tenure and in five decades that the article has been invoked. The rare and powerful move allows the UN secy-gen to bring any issue seen as threatening international peace to security council's attention. It was invoked last in 1971 during the India-Pakistan crisis that led to the birth of Bangladesh. Israeli Foreign Minister Eli Cohen said that the tenure of Guterres is “a danger to world peace,” and his letter shows that he backs Hamas. Watch for more details.
