The resolution, tabled by Malta and adopted by 12 votes, calls for “urgent and sustained humanitarian pauses and corridors throughout the Gaza Strip for a sufficient number of days to allow aid to civilians in the encircled territory.”
The USA, Great Britain and Russia abstained during the vote.
The resolution also calls for the immediate and unconditional release of all hostages held by Hamas militants and other groups, and demands that all parties fulfill their obligations under international law. Israel’s Foreign Ministry rejected a UN Security Council resolution calling for a sustained humanitarian truce in the Gaza Strip, informs Haaretz.
The agency said that while Hamas continues to hold hostages, such measures are inappropriate.
The resolution was also criticized by Israel’s representative at the UN, Gilad Erdan. According to him, “the document is detached from reality” and the Security Council “continues to ignore and refuse to condemn or even mention the mass murder committed by Hamas on October 7.”
“Hamas’ strategy is to deliberately worsen the humanitarian situation in Gaza and increase the number of Palestinian casualties in order to force the UN and the Security Council to stop Israel. This will not happen. Israel will continue to operate until Hamas is destroyed and the hostages are returned “, he said.
In October, the UN Security Council failed four times to pass resolutions calling for a ceasefire or humanitarian pauses in the conflict zone.
- On November 6, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres stated that no party in the armed conflict between Israel and Hamas is above international humanitarian law.
