The UN Security Council approves resolution urging “urgent” ceasefire in Gaza

On Monday, the United Nations Security Council approved a resolution calling for an “immediate” ceasefire during Ramadan in the Gaza Strip. This resolution was sponsored by Algeria and nine other non-permanent member countries. More than 32,300 people have died as a result of the Israeli Army’s military offensive on the Palestinian enclave.

UN Secretary General António Guterres announced the resolution on social media, urging for an immediate ceasefire and the release of all hostages. The resolution received 14 votes in favor, no votes against, and one abstention from the United States. Russia had proposed an amendment to the resolution that called for stronger language, but it was rejected by the Council.

The Algerian ambassador to the UN praised the Council for fulfilling its responsibility to maintain international peace and security. The US representative at the UN expressed support for the resolution’s objectives and urged all member states to pressure Hamas to accept an agreement for a ceasefire. The resolution calls for an immediate ceasefire during Ramadan, the release of hostages held by Hamas, humanitarian access for medical needs in Gaza, and protection of civilians.
