The recent controversial comments made by United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres have sparked calls for his resignation. Guterres criticized Hamas rocket attacks against Israel, describing them as “shameful” and calling for an end to the violence. His comments sparked outrage in the Arab world and around the world, with many calling for his resignation. Human Rights Watch described Guterres’ comments as “inaccurate and one-sided”, while Kuwait’s foreign minister, Ahmad al-Jarallah, called Guterres’ comments “offensive” and said they did “not contribute to achieving peace”. Guterres has since clarified his remarks and called for a stop to attacks on both sides. However, these clarifications have done little to stem the growing calls for Guterres’ resignation.
