US takes Ha­mas vote ‘very se­ri­ously’


US Am­bas­sador Nikki Ha­ley is urg­ing coun­tries at the United Na­tions to back a US-drafted res­o­lu­tion con­demn­ing the Pales­tinian Ha­mas move­ment, warn­ing in a let­ter that the United States takes the vote “very se­ri­ously.”

The UN Gen­eral As­sem­bly is sched­uled to vote to­day on the draft res­o­lu­tion that would con­demn Ha­mas for fir­ing rock­ets into Is­rael and de­mand that it ends the vi­o­lence. If adopted, it would mark the first time that the as­sem­bly has taken aim at Ha­mas, which has ruled the Gaza Strip since 2007.
