US Criticized for Vetoing UN Ceasefire Resolution in Israel-Gaza War

The ongoing Israel-Hamas war has sparked global condemnation and controversy after the US blocked a UN resolution calling for a ceasefire in Gaza. Rights groups have criticized the US for continuing to support Israel with weapons and diplomatic cover and have warned that it may be complicit in war crimes. The US’s decision to block the resolution has been described as a “a turning point in history” by the Palestinian ambassador to the UN, and also as “morally indefensible” by Amnesty International. Hamas has condemned the US veto, calling it “unethical and inhumane”. The war has had catastrophic consequences, and UN has warned of a breakdown in civil order in Gaza, with its relief operation grinding to a halt. The conflict has also been deadly for journalists and civilians, and hospitals in Gaza are struggling to function effectively. The Biden administration has also asked Congress to approve the sale of 45,000 shells for Israel’s tanks. Meanwhile, the European Commission has announced that it will provide humanitarian aid to the Palestinian people. Against the backdrop of horrifying destruction and loss of life, the international community continues to hope for a ceasefire and the protection of civilians in Gaza. Iran has warned of an “uncontrollable explosion” in the situation in the Middle East if the conflict persists, and has urged the immediate opening of the Rafah border crossing to send humanitarian aid into Gaza.
