U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has condemned the “horrific” humanitarian crisis that has gripped parts of the Philippines, calling it a “major humanitarian crisis” and a “serious threat” to global peace and stability.

Guterres also urged the Philippine government to immediately open its jails and release the estimated 200,000 political prisoners in solitary confinement.

“I condemn in the strongest terms the human rights violations, the grave violations of human rights, and the failure of the Philippine authorities to provide basic necessities to its people, particularly the poor and vulnerable,” he said during a visit to the Philippines on Sunday.

The Philippines has reported more than 100,000 deaths since President Rodrigo Duterte assumed office in June, with more than 12,000 missing and almost 17,000 dead.

Duterte’s critics have accused him of killing thousands in his bloody crackdown on drug addicts, mostly drug users.

A growing number of refugees and migrants from the Philippines have crossed the border into Cambodia and Vietnam, where they have been fleeing human rights abuses.

The UN chief said the Philippine situation had reached “a tipping point.”

The Philippine president has also called on his allies to pressure Beijing to provide aid to help the country.

In a statement released Sunday, Guterre said the United States and its allies would conduct an unprecedented air and naval patrol over the Philippines in response to a request from the Philippine president and the United Nations.

The US is sending ships and aircraft to the waters of the eastern Philippines to help with the search, the statement said.

“We are doing this in the context of our ongoing efforts to strengthen our ability to deter, disrupt, and respond to potential threats to global security,” the statement read.

The U.K., the European Union and Australia have also offered support.

“The Philippines remains a critical region for U.C.P.S.,” said Mark Bains, a spokesman for the Office of the U.NSO High Commissioner for Refugees in the Philippines.

“We will continue to support the government in providing a safe haven for displaced people, including those fleeing violence and oppression.”
