The UN Security Council has passed a resolution calling for an immediate ceasefire in the Palestinian Gaza Strip. This proposal was passed on Monday. The US reversed its earlier position by refraining from vetoing today’s resolution.

Israeli forces have been indiscriminately attacking Gaza for more than five months. This is the first time that the Security Council has passed a resolution calling for a ceasefire there. In addition to the ceasefire, the resolution also called for the immediate and unconditional release of those held hostage by Hamas.

the resolution passed in the Security Council :

After the Gaza ruling group Hamas launched an unprecedented attack on Israel on October 7, Israeli forces launched a counterattack on the same day. More than 32,000 Palestinians have been killed in their attacks on Gaza.

There have been several attempts to pass a resolution in the Security Council calling for a cease-fire in Gaza. Initially, they were blocked by the use of US veto power. Recently, a proposal was made by the United States calling for a ceasefire. However, Russia and China vetoed the proposal in favor of Israel. After this, for the first time, the Security Council of the United Nations passed a resolution calling for a ceasefire.

The position of the United States changed :

The resolution was adopted today by the 10 non-permanent member states of the Security Council. The countries are Algeria, Sierra Leone, Mozambique, Korea, Japan, Slovenia, Guyana, Ecuador, Malta and Switzerland. The United States abstained from voting on the resolution. All the remaining members of the 15-member (5 permanent and 10 non-permanent) Security Council voted in favor of the resolution. Apart from the United States, the other four permanent members of the Security Council are China, Russia, France and the United Kingdom.

Today’s US position makes clear the difference between Washington and Israel’s position on the attack on Gaza. The US has been criticizing Israel for some time over the loss of life in Gaza. US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken recently visited several countries in the Middle East, including Israel, to discuss the ceasefire.
