“I don’t want to go into what was actually discussed at the briefing, but there are a large number of countries that have condemned the Hamas attacks. They obviously don’t all (condemn the attack) and I don’t really want to go into that. I think you probably , you will be able to solve one of them without my words,” said the US Deputy Ambassador to the UN, Robert Wood.
According to him, the situation is still unstable and very dangerous.

He added that officials are working hard to try to prevent the spread of conflict in the region: “It is important that the world community condemns, strongly condemns this unprovoked invasion, terrorist attacks and actions that are taking place.”
When asked about the plight of Palestinians in the region, Wood said they condemn attacks on civilians who are injured or killed anywhere in the world.
Hamas should be condemned until it ceases its violent terrorist activities, he added.
Events in Israel
On the morning of Saturday, October 7, 2023, the Palestinian armed groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad immediately launched a massive attack on the State of Israel in several places from the air and on the ground. The head of the armed wing of Hamas, Muhammad al-Deifa, said that his fighters launched the “Al-Aqsa Flood” operation. According to him, these actions are designed to protect the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem.
The Palestinians fired 2,000-3,000 rockets into Israel and simultaneously captured 7 communities in the south.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a statement regarding the invasion of Israel by Hamas militants and declared that the country is “in a state of war”.
The TSA actively used aviation to strike Palestinian command posts. The clean-up of communities occupied by Hamas has also begun.
In addition, there is a great threat that the Shiite Hezbollah may strike Israel from the north, because its main partner and supplier, the Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI), has called on the jihadists to “liberate Jerusalem.”
