Gaza on verge of ‘total systems collapse’ says UN envoy

SHAFAQNA – UN Middle East peace envoy Nickolay Mladenov on Tuesday warned that the Palestinian coastal enclave of the Gaza Strip is on the verge of full collapse.

“Without the solution Gaza risks exploding again, this time in a far more deadly and violent manner than in the past,” Mladenov said at the annual conference of Israel’s Institute for National Security Studies in Tel Aviv.

“I often say publicly, in UN Security Council briefings and in other formats, that we are in the midst of a major humanitarian crisis,” Mladenov said.

“We’re on the verge of a total systems failure in Gaza, with a full collapse of the economy, with social services, political, humanitarian and security implications stemming from that.”, he added.
