UN Brief on Middle East and Terrorism in the Region

Jeffrey Feltman

On Monday (23 June), Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs Jeffrey Feltman will brief the Council during its monthly consideration of the Middle East. His public comments will likely focus on the current crisis challenging the nascent Fatah-Hamas reconciliation and unity government in Palestine due to the Israeli military response to the kidnapping of three Israeli teenagers in the West Bank. Other issues will likely include the lack of a credible path toward a political solution following the failure of US-mediated peace talks on 29 April and hunger-striking Palestinian prisoners under Israeli administrative detention. During the following consultations, Feltman will present a separate assessment of terrorist threats in the region, in particular in Iraq, Syria and Yemen.
