The president and the secretary-general were joined by Lea Goldin, mother of Hadar ז”ל, whose body is being held by Hamas in Gaza.

Lea Goldin spoke to the secretary-general from the heart about the need to bring her son home through strong messages from international institutions to Hamas, among other methods.

In his meeting, the president emphasized to the secretary-general that bias against Israel at the UN must end. “Our region, the Middle East needs trust between people. Peace between Israel and the Palestinians will never ever be achieved by anti-Israeli resolutions or investigation committees,” he said.

“We are interested in continuing to work with the UN to provide humanitarian assistance to the people of Gaza, with whom we have no conflict. However, any agreement should include steps to return our soldiers and citizens, who are held by Hamas, a terrorist organization,” he added, following Lea Goldin’s words.
