On behalf of the UN, Norway’s Tor Wennesland has been closely involved in the work to get a ceasefire in place in Israel and in Gaza, the UN stated on Monday.
Wennesland, the UN’s special coordinator for the peace process in the Middle East, has worked intensively and closely with Egypt in the ceasefire mediation, his office wrote on Twitter.
“We emphasize our desire to do everything we can to end the ongoing escalation and ensure the safety and security of the civilian population,” Wennesland noted in a statement.
“The situation is still very vulnerable, and I encourage all parties to observe the ceasefire,” Wennesland added.
