conflict to rise in Gaza if talks fail, says UN envoy

(MENAFN)UN envoy for the Middle East warned Monday that Conflict is going to rise again in Gaza if a deal on the return of the Palestinian National Authority (PNA) to the Hamas-controlled enclave fails.

UN envoy Nickolay Mladenov said the Egyptian-led "process must not be allowed to fail" talking to the Security Council on the eve of talks in Cairo between Palestinian factions.

"If it does, it will most likely result in another devastating conflict," he said.

"Whether it would be triggered by a meltdown of law and order in Gaza, by the reckless action of extremists or by strategic choice, the result will be the same- devastation and suffering for all," He added.

"Two million Palestinians in Gaza have high hopes that the government's return will improve their lives." he mentioned.
