US Gaza res­o­lu­tion fails

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS -

THE United States has ve­toed an Arab-backed United Na­tions draft res­o­lu­tion call­ing for mea­sures to pro­tect Pales­tini­ans but failed to win any back­ing for its own text con­demn­ing Ha­mas for the vi­o­lence in Gaza.

The two failed votes at the Se­cu­rity Coun­cil came hours af­ter a Pales­tinian wo­man was shot dead by Israeli sol­diers near the Gaza bor­der.

US Am­bas­sador Nikki Ha­ley said “it is now com­pletely clear that the UN is hope­lessly bi­ased against Is­rael” and coun­cil mem­bers were “will­ing to blame Is­rael, but un­will­ing to blame Ha­mas”.
