UN chief warns Israeli assault on Rafah would have 'untold' consequences


With the war in Gaza entering its fifth month, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warns that if Israel pressed into the southern city of Rafah, as it reportedly plans to do, it "would exponentially increase what is already a humanitarian nightmare with untold regional consequences." "It is time for an immediate humanitarian ceasefire and the unconditional release of all hostages", he adds at the top of a speech to the General Assembly presenting his 2024 priorities. SOUNDBITE
