Haley: US to Veto UN Resolution on Protecting Palestinians
Local Editor

US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said Washington will "unquestionably veto" a UN draft resolution calling for the protection of Palestinians in Gaza and the occupied West Bank.

After initially deciding to delay action on the measure, the UN Security Council was expected to finally go ahead with the vote set to take place at 7:00 pm on Friday.

Haley on Thursday claimed the text drafted by Kuwait on behalf of Arab countries as a "grossly one-sided approach that is morally bankrupt and would only serve to undermine ongoing efforts toward peace between the "Israelis" and Palestinians."

"Those who choose to vote in favor of this resolution will clarify their own lack of fitness to take part in any credible negotiations between the two parties," concluded the statement.

Kuwait presented its draft two weeks earlier, calling for an international protection mission for the Palestinians.

A final watered-down version of the Kuwaiti resolution calls for "the consideration of measures to guarantee the safety and protection" of Palestinian civilians.

Haley vehemently supported the Zionist entity at the United Nations after "Israeli" troops killed more than 60 Palestinians and injured hundreds others at the Great Return March protests earlier this month.

Haley defended the Zionist regime's "restraint" at an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council before walking out of the room when Palestinian envoy Riyad Mansour began speaking.

At least 122 Palestinians have been martyred by "Israeli" occupation forces since the end of March.
