In his editorial, Atwan wrote that Sinwar's comments "reveal the strategic foundations of Hamas, with the most obvious being Hamas' return to the axis of resistance through the improvement of relations with Iran and the recovering of relations with Syria". According to Netanyahu, Tehran has been working on a "creeping expansion" in the Middle East under the pretext of a peaceful settlement in Syria.

Guterres reiterated the UN's stance that Israeli settlements built in Palestine are illegal.

On Tuesday, the UN secretary general held a joint press conference with Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah following a meeting in the West Bank city of Ramallah.

The trip comes as the UN Security Council debates renewing the force s mandate for a year, with a vote expected on Wednesday.

"And that is a dramatic demonstration that it is our duty to do everything possible.to fight anti-Semitism in all its expressions".
