Israel reacts angrily as UN resolution on Middle East truce passes for the first time

The United Nations Security Council has approved a resolution calling for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza during the holy month of Ramadan. This is the first time such a resolution has been passed since the conflict began, and it was seen as a significant development. The US abstained from vetoing the resolution, which was welcomed by Hamas.

Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant, who was visiting the US, emphasized that Israel feels a moral obligation to continue fighting as long as there are hostages detained in Gaza. He warned that failing to achieve a decisive victory could lead to further conflicts in the region. The US expressed disappointment over Israel’s cancellation of a mission to discuss alternatives to a ground operation in Rafah with the Biden administration.

The UN Secretary-General condemned Israel’s stop on aid delivery to the north of the Strip and emphasized the importance of implementing the resolution. Failure to do so would be unforgivable, he said. Hamas welcomed the UN resolution and reiterated its call for a permanent ceasefire leading to the withdrawal of Israeli forces from Gaza. The group expressed willingness to engage in a process leading to the release of prisoners on both sides.
