UN Security Council to Vote on Humanitarian Truce in Israel-Hamas Conflict; Russia Proposes Condemnation of Gaza Hospital Bombing

The United Nations Security Council is poised to vote on Wednesday regarding a draft resolution brought forth by Brazil. This resolution seeks to establish a humanitarian truce in the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas, with the aim of facilitating the delivery of vital humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip.

Sources have revealed that, subsequent to the vote, the Council will deliberate upon the request made by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Russia. The discussion is centered around the recent bombing of a hospital in Gaza, which tragically resulted in the loss of hundreds of innocent lives.

Interestingly, Russia has proposed an amendment to the Brazilian resolution that would include a condemnation of the aforementioned hospital attack in the northern region of Gaza. Dmitry Polyansky, Russia’s deputy envoy to the United Nations, conveyed through the Telegram application, “Today we completed the amendment related to denouncing the raids on Gaza by denouncing the raid on the National Arab Hospital.”

Notably, a separate draft resolution originating from Russia failed to secure the minimum of nine votes required for approval within the 15-member council. The resolution sought to establish a humanitarian ceasefire in the Israeli-Hamas conflict. Its failure to garner support was attributed to the absence of condemnation towards Hamas’ attacks on Israel.

The United States, Britain, France, and Japan voted against the resolution, while the United Arab Emirates, Russia, China, Gabon, and Mozambique supported it. Brazil, Malta, Albania, Switzerland, Ecuador, and Ghana abstained from voting.

Several countries that rallied behind the Russian draft resolution include Bahrain, Djibouti, Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Mauritania, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, United Arab Emirates, Yemen, and Turkey.
