Haley calls Security Council response to Gazan volleys 'outrageous'

breaking us news nikki haley

(Worthy News) - Nikki Haley, US President Donald Trump's envoy to the UN, tore into the organization on Wednesday for what she characterized as a lackadaisical response to the firing of over 70 rockets on Israel from Gaza the day before.

Claiming a double standard, and questioning why Israeli military actions against Hamas, recognized as a terrorist organization, rile world opinion more so than the reverse, Haley called on the Security Council to condemn the attack as an act of terrorism.

The Gazan volleys were "a clear escalation of violence," Haley said, accusing the council of being "disconnected" from the realities on the ground. "The people of Gaza do not need protection from an external force. The people of Gaza need protection from Hamas." [ Source: Jerusalem Post (Read More...) ]
