Palestinian Ambassador Urges UN To ‘Stop The Killing’ As Israel Pounds Gaza

e Palestinian envoy to the United Nations, Riyad Mansour, has implored member states to vote to end the Israeli bombardment of the Gaza Strip and to increase aid deliveries to the 2.3 million Palestinians living in the besieged territory.

Palestinian Ambassador Riyad Mansour, in a speech to the UN General Assembly yesterday, said certain nations that he did not name were applying a double standard on the conflict, as he called on member states to vote for an end to the killing.

The 193-nation General Assembly met for an emergency session as aid agencies and rights groups warned that humanitarian conditions in Gaza are at a critical point more than two weeks into a relentless Israeli assault.

Israel has bombarded the Palestinian territory since Hamas, which governs Gaza, killed at least 1,400 people in attacks on southern Israel, according to Israeli officials.

More than 7,000 people have been killed in the Israeli bombardment, according to Gaza authorities, and Israel has also cut off supplies of food, water, electricity and fuel to the territory.
