Calls for UN leader’s resignation intensify after ‘shameful’ comments about Hamas attacks on Israel

The calls for the resignation of United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres have intensified following his remarks about recent rocket attacks carried out by the militant Islamist group Hamas against Israel. Guterres had described the rocket attacks as “shameful”, sparking criticism from many who argue that such language lays blame on both sides equally or absolves Hamas of responsibility for its actions. This has led to a growing chorus of voices in the international community calling for Guterres’ resignation as the leader of the United Nations.
