5. SOUNDBITE (English) António Guterres, Secretary-General, United Nations:
“I'm sincerely hopeful that it will be possible to have other crossings, because they will facilitate the distribution and it will also facilitate the control by the Israeli side. So, I'm very hopeful that this will happen. A Palestinian Authority, hopefully, in the day after, and as I mentioned, we will need to look seriously into how the transition takes place - and obviously, the before has implications on the after, and so it's still early to know exactly how things will happen - but I believe that we need a Palestinian Authority with the responsibility to rule in Gaza, in the West Bank, and to create the conditions to make sure that the two-state solution moves forward and this time moves forward in a way that is irreversible. And so, obviously, this will naturally lead to a strengthened Palestinian Authority. And I believe the international community should be ready to support it.”

STORYLINE:

Asked about possible extension of humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza for another two days, the Secretary-General said, “I would say it's a glimpse of hope and humanity in the middle of the darkness of war.”

Speaking to reporters today in New York, he said, “I strongly hope that this will enable us to increase even more the humanitarian aid to the people in Gaza that is suffering so much, knowing that even with that additional amount of time, it will be impossible to satisfy all the dramatic needs of the population in Gaza.”

Asked about the Kerem Shalom crossing, Guterres said, “I'm sincerely hopeful that it will be possible to have other crossings, because they will facilitate the distribution and it will also facilitate the control by the Israeli side. So I'm very hopeful that this will happen.”

Asked about the need for a" reinvigorated" Palestinian Authority, Guterres said, it's still early to know exactly how things will happen - but I believe that we need a Palestinian Authority with the responsibility to rule in Gaza, in the West Bank, and to create the conditions to make sure that the two-state solution moves forward and this time moves forward in a way that is irreversible.”

The Secretary-General continued, “And so, obviously, this will naturally lead to a strengthened Palestinian Authority. And I believe the international community should be ready to support it.”

In a statement issued over the weekend, the Secretary-General once again calls for the remaining hostages to be released immediately and unconditionally, adding that "the dialogue that led to the agreement must continue, resulting in a full humanitarian ceasefire, for the benefit of the people of Gaza, Israel and the wider region."
