UN Security Council Adopts Ceasefire Resolution To End Gaza War

The UN Security Council has overwhelmingly approved a resolution endorsing a ceasefire plan aimed at ending the eight-month conflict between Israel and Hamas in Gaza, as reported by Edith M. Lederer and Bassem Mroue for the Associated Press (AP).

The resolution, which was sponsored by the United States, welcomes a ceasefire proposal announced by President Joe Biden, which the US claims has been accepted by Israel.


The resolution, approved with 14 out of 15 Security Council members voting in favor and Russia abstaining, calls on both Israel and Hamas to fully implement the ceasefire terms without delay or conditions.



This strong support from the UN's most powerful body adds significant pressure on both parties.


Conversely, Hamas has welcomed the adoption of the resolution and expressed readiness to work with mediators in indirect negotiations with Israel to implement the ceasefire.



The resolution's approval marks a significant step towards ending the prolonged violence, though the willingness of both Israel and Hamas to fully comply remains uncertain.
