TEHRAN, May 14 (MNA) – In a tweet on Friday, the United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres called for de-escalation of hostilities in Gaza.

"Out of respect for the spirit of Eid, I appeal for an immediate de-escalation and cessation of hostilities in Gaza and Israel [regime]," he tweeted.

"Too many innocent civilians have already died. This conflict can only increase radicalization and extremism in the whole region," he added.
