UN Security Council In Talks Over Resolution Of Isreal-Palestine War

UN Security Council members held talks yesterday on a possible resolution over the war between Israel and Hamas, with two drafts on the negotiating table.

On Friday, Russia circulated a draft that calls for an immediate, durable and fully respected humanitarian ceasefire in the war triggered by the October 7 Hamas attack from Gaza on southern Israel.

That draft also calls for unimpeded humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip, which had already been under a years-long Israeli blockade and is now under a full-blown siege, with basics like electricity and food supplies cut off.

According to AFP, the Russian draft condemns in strong terms, all violence and hostility directed against civilians and all acts of terrorism, without mentioning Hamas.

But the United States is insisting that the council condemn the Hamas attacks as an act of terrorism. 

The death toll in Gaza from Israeli retaliatory attacks has risen to 2,450, the Health Ministry there said, and more than 1,400 people have been killed in Israel since the attack unleashed last week by Hamas militants, the Israeli Prime Minister’s office said Sunday.
