    Antonio Guterres, the United Nations secretary-general, is in Gaza on the final leg of his first visit to Israel and the Palestinian territories.

    During his visit he called for the blockade on Gaza to be lifted, describing the Palestinian territory's situation as one of the most dramatic humanitarian crises he had seen in years. He also called on rival Palestinian factions Hamas and Fatah to unite.

     

    Al Jazeera's Hoda Abdel-Hamid reports on how Gaza's civilians are bearing the brunt of these political divisions.
