The United Nations (UN) Special Co-ordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Nickolay Mladenov thanked the State of Qatar for its urgent and generous response by providing $60mn for the purchase of fuel, to increase the supply of electricity to the Gaza Strip.
This came in his speech at the meeting of the UN Security Council held Thursday on developments in the situation in the Middle East, including the Palestinian issue and the situation in the Gaza Strip.
Mladenov warned of the repercussions of the deterioration of the situation in the Gaza Strip in the light of the possibility of war in the Strip, and the continued decline of economic, security and political indicators.
The UN official urged all sides to calm the situation, warning that the consequences will be terrible for everyone.
The warnings of the UN official to the possibility of war in the Gaza Strip come after the council of ministers of the Israeli entity issued on Wednesday instructions to the occupation army to escalate its response to the marches of return, which continue since March 30, describing the demonstrations as riots on the security fence in the Gaza Strip.
The occupation forces have faced marches calling for the return of Palestinian refugees and the lifting of the Israeli siege imposed on the Gaza Strip since 2006, with extreme violence, which resulted in the deaths of more than 200 Palestinians and thousands of injured.
He called on the Israeli and Palestinian sides to return to the negotiating table, adding that the Israeli entity continues to demolish Palestinian buildings and property in the occupied West Bank and imposes the reality of one state on the ground.
