(Worthy News) - Israel and the United States are seeking to prevent the passage of a UN Security Council resolution creating an international force in Gaza.
According to the Hebrew news site YNet, the resolution introduced by Kuwait in collaboration with the Palestinians seeks to protect civilian demonstrators in areas of armed conflict. It is in reaction to the ongoing riots on the Gaza border, in which Israel has used live fire against attempts to storm the border fence and commit acts of terrorism.
The US and Israel hope to prevent the resolution from gaining a majority in the 15-seat council. YNet notes that the current makeup of the council makes this unusually difficult. If the resolution passes, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley has promised to use the American veto to block its implementation. [ Source: Algemeiner (Read More...) ]
