The UN Chief says Israel's Blockade of Gaza is Causing "Unacceptable Suffering"

The UN chief has said Israel's blockade of Gaza is causing "unacceptable suffering," during a Middle East visit to reinvigorate the peace process.

Ban Ki-moon told Gazans that "we stand with you" as he visited an area damaged by Israel's offensive 14 months ago.


Last week, the international community strongly condemned Israel's announcement of planning permission for 1,600 new homes in East Jerusalem, occupied by Israel since 1967.

Laughing in the face of such pathetic posturing, Netanyahu, the Israeli Prime Minister, showed his incredible hubris when saying that settlement building work is set to continue regardless:

"We will continue to build in Jerusalem as we have done for 42 years," he said, according to AFP news agency.
