The third emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council in one week – in the midst of a deadly Israel disappointing in Gaza – ended again without any significant consequences after the United States closed an agreement to end a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas.
The rally on Sunday took place when the US twice closed the polls that protested the Israeli military’s response to calls for suspension. At least 200 people, including 58 children, have been killed in the bombing of two million people.
Israel has justified its bombing campaign in retaliation for the Hamas military strikes. But Hamas in Gaza says its actions are in response to Israeli policies to forcibly relocate Palestinians living in East Jerusalem and destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque by Israeli forces last week. Israel missed the last day of Hamas to release its military force from the mosque.
Recent inefficiency comes again when US President Joe Biden said nothing to pressure Israel, instead of repeatedly asserting that Israel has a right to self-defense.
Opponents, including members of the Biden party, have blamed officials for clearing the Israeli bombing, which killed 192 Palestinians in Gaza.
At least 10 Israeli civilians, including two children, have been killed by rockets installed in Gaza since Monday.
The US ambassador to the United Nations, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, told an emergency meeting that the US was “working hard through dialogue” to end the conflict.
“The United States has made it very clear that we are ready to assist with good offices if the parties end the war,” he said.
However, no word of reference has been released from the council, although there have been talks led by Norway, China and Tunisia.
The US, China, France, Russia and the United Kingdom are all permanent members of the Security Council, and they are empowered to vote. China has already named the US as the only opposition party.
On Monday, an official in Fatah told Al Jazeera that he was disappointed with the US approach.
“The best and most important bidder for Biden’s recent summit of President Abbas did not show up at the US Security Council last Tuesday,” Sabri Saidam, a member of the Fatah Central Committee, told Al Jazeera on Saturday’s summit between Biden and the Palestinian President.
“No need for a word!” he added.
‘Stop right there’
United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres began his meeting on Sunday with a petition to be resolved.
“This absurdity of blood, fear and destruction should stop immediately,” he said. “All parties must respect international human rights law and international human rights law.”
Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki, then, prosecution Israel commits “war crimes” every week.
Israel’s Israeli ambassador to the United Nations, Gilad Erdan, has also accused Hamas of politically motivated political violence.
On Sunday, Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu said Israeli airstrikes were continuing “with full force” and “it would take time”, adding that he “wanted to recoup a lot of money” from Hamas officials in Gaza.
‘Push It Hard’
U.S. Ambassador Thomas-Greenfield warned at the conference that a return to war could only increase the two countries’ response to negotiations decades ago.
However, the US expressed a desire to secede from supporting Israel.
In a phone call with Netanyahu on Saturday, Biden focused on killing civilians on Hamas rockets. At the White House reading of the law did not mention the US urging Israel to take part in a crackdown on Middle Eastern countries.
U.S. Ambassador Adam Schiff, President of the Democratic House Committee, urged Biden on Sunday to move both parties to a ceasefire and resume talks to end Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
“I think the administration should work hard for Israel and the Palestinian Authority to end the violence, end the war, end the hostility, and get back on track to resolve the long-running conflict,” Schiff, a California Democrat, told CBS’s Face the Nation.
Meanwhile, a growing group of U.S. senators on Sunday called for a resolution. Democratic Senator Chris Murphy and Republican Todd Young, senior members of the opposition group, said in a statement: “Given the Hamas rocket attack and the Israeli response, both parties should realize that many lives have been lost and should not escalate the conflict.”
Twenty-five Democratic U.S. filmmakers and two independent statesmen released a joint statement, calling for an end to the war.
Well-known American Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has called Israel a “violent country” during the Gaza bombing.
Bernie Sanders, a former Democratic Party presidential hopeful, also criticized Israeli military forces in Gaza.
“The damage to Gaza is unknown. We must call for an immediate end to the war. The killings of Palestinians and Israelis must end. We must also look at about $ 4 billion a year to help the military in Israel. .
