Israel’s war on Gaza: US condemned for veto of UN ceasefire resolution


  • “The message given today to Israel with this veto is that it can continue to get away with murder,” Palestine’s United Nations envoy Riyad Mansour says.
  • Rejecting a UN Security Council (UNSC) ceasefire resolution shows “approval of starvation as a means of war”, says Algeria’s ambassador to the UN, Amar Bendjama.
  • “We are appalled to hear of this new low in an already deep pit of failures from the international community,” Save the Children’s director for the occupied Palestinian territories Jason Lee says, as the US vetoes the resolution which was supported by 13 of the UNSC’s 15 members.
  • Stopping World Food Programme (WFP) aid to northern Gaza would be a “death sentence” for 750,000 people, says Gaza’s government’s media office.
  • At least 29,195 Palestinians have been killed and 69,170 injured in Israeli attacks on Gaza since October 7, the Health Ministry says. The death toll in Israel from the October 7 Hamas-led attacks stands at 1,139.
