Russia-China and UK-US Aid Resolutions Fail at UN Security Council

Russia and China vetoed a UN security council resolution, drafted by the US, that did NOT call for a ceasefire, but said that Israel had a right to defend itself.

The draft aimed to address a worsening humanitarian crisis in Gaza, calling for pauses in the violence to allow aid access.

The United Arab Emirates also voted against the resolution. Ten members voted in favour and two abstained.
