“There is strong reason to condemn the attack against the housing complex in Qana leading to the deaths of civilians including children,” Eliasson told AFP.
Eliasson appealed for an end to the fighting and for the adpotion of a UN resolution.
“It is time to end this madness. The UN Security Council must accept its responsibility and immediately adopt a resolution to bring an end to hostilities,” Eliasson said.
It was time for a political and diplomatic offensive rather than a military one, Eliasson added.
