    The United Nations chief Antonio Guterres has deplored the humanitarian situation in Palestin.

    In his remarks to a meeting on the rights of the Palestinian people, UN Secretary-General said that approximately two million Palestinians remain mired in increasing poverty and unemployment.

    He urged Israel to lift restrictions on the movement of people and goods, which also hamper the efforts of the United Nations and other humanitarian agencies.

    Moreover, the secretary-general pledged the United Nations' firm support of Palestinian reconciliation and the return of the "legitimate Palestinian government" to Gaza.
