UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Process Nickolay Mladenov

United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Nickolay Mladenov expressed his deep “alarm” late Wednesday over the military escalation along the Gaza-Israel border.

Striving to maintain the neutrality for which he has become legend, Mladenov wrote in a post on his official Twitter social networking site that he was “deeply alarmed by escalation of violence btw #Gaza & #Israel.”


He went on to say that if the current escalation “isn’t contained immediately, [the] situation can rapidly deteriorate with devastating consequences [for] all.”

Was that something that either side didn’t already know?
