UN Security Council approves ceasefire resolution in Gaza

United Nations, June 10 (Prensa Latina) The UN Security Council today approved proposal for a three-phase ceasefire for the Gaza Strip presented by the United States, which seeks total end to the conflict.

The resolution, approved by 14 favorable votes and the abstention of Russia, hopes to establish negotiations in accordance with the plan announced by the North American president, Joe Biden.

The proposal urges the parties to agree “without delay and without conditions” on an initial six-week truce, although as on previous occasions the text lacks any condemnation of Israel, despite the fact that its offensive in the Gaza Strip claimed more than 36 thousand deaths of Palestinians.

Furthermore, it recognizes the importance of ongoing diplomatic efforts by Egypt, Qatar and the United States, aimed at reaching a comprehensive ceasefire agreement.

The North American delegation confirmed that Israel accepted the proposal, which is why it asked Hamas to apply the terms.

The text rejects any attempt at territorial or demographic modification in Gaza, including any action to reduce the territory.

Furthermore, it recognizes the importance of unifying Gaza and the West Bank under the Palestinian Authority.

This is the fourth resolution approved by the Security Council and the second to demand a ceasefire.

After repeated failures due to the American veto, the approved projects were barely limited to demanding the entry of more humanitarian aid and a ceasefire during the month of Ramadan, a request that Israel unceremoniously ignored.

Resolutions approved within the Security Council are binding, which is why they are considered of greater weight than those approved by the General Assembly and other United Nations entities.
