The United Nations Middle East envoy has warned about the worsening conditions of Palestinians living in the Gaza Strip. Nickolay Mladenov made the statement at a UN Security Council meeting.

Mladenov added that all the key indicators show the humanitarian, economic, security and political conditions in the coastal enclave are deteriorating. He warned that Gaza stands on the brink of another devastating conflict, stressing that it is necessary to take action to prevent the conflict.
