(Worthy News) - Ambassador Nikki Haley “will unquestionably veto” a “morally bankrupt” draft resolution on the violence between Israelis and Palestinians in Gaza, she announced late Thursday.
“It is a grossly one-sided approach that is morally bankrupt and would only serve to undermine ongoing efforts toward peace between the Israelis and Palestinians,” Haley, the top U.S. diplomat at the United Nations, said in an evening statement.
Kuwait is circulating a draft resolution that demands Israel avoid “excessive, disproportionate and indiscriminate force” and calls on the U.N. to develop a plan to protect Palestinian civilians. It would also call for “ending the closure and the restrictions imposed by Israel on movement and access into and out of the Gaza Strip.” But the resolution makes no mention of Hamas, Haley noted, which has launched rockets into Israel in recent days in addition to spurring terrorist attacks against the border fence between Israel and Gaza.
