120 coun­tries at UN con­demn Is­rael

New Straits Times - - WORLD -

NEW YORK: The United Na­tions Gen­eral As­sem­bly on Wed­nes­day adopted by a strong ma­jor­ity of 120 coun­tries an Arab-backed res­o­lu­tion con­demn­ing Is­rael for Pales­tinian deaths in Gaza and re­jected a United States bid to blame Ha­mas. The res­o­lu­tion de­plores Is­rael’s use of “ex­ces­sive” force against civil­ians and calls for pro­tec­tion mea­sures for Pales­tini­ans in Gaza and the oc­cu­pied West Bank. At least 129 Pales­tini­ans have been killed by Is­raeli fire dur­ing protests near the border with Gaza since March.
