UN General Assembly Condemns ’Israeli’ Murder of Innocent Palestinians
Local Editor

The UN General Assembly has adopted a nonbinding resolution condemning the apartheid "Israeli" entity's use of excessive force against Palestinian protesters in Gaza.

Meanwhile, a US amendment to condemn Hamas did not get enough support.

The resolution condemns "Israel" for "excessive use of force" against Palestinian demonstrators on the Israeli-Gaza border and calls for the "protection of the Palestinian civilian population" in Gaza. It was adopted with 120 votes in favor and eight votes against, with 45 abstentions.

The resolution calls on UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres to make proposals within 60 days "on ways and means for ensuring the safety, protection, and well-being of the Palestinian civilian population under "Israeli" occupation," including "recommendations regarding an international protection mechanism."

It also calls for "immediate steps towards ending the closure and the restrictions imposed by "Israel" on movement and access into and out of the Gaza Strip."

The amendment offered by US envoy Nikki Haley sought to condemn Hamas Resistance Movement, which runs the elected government in Gaza, for firing rockets at "Israel". The amendment received 62 votes in favor, with 58 nations opposed and 42 abstaining. It needed a two-thirds majority to pass, however, so it was not included in the final resolution.

The nearly identical resolution proposed by Kuwait was vetoed by the US in the Security Council on Tuesday. Unlike the Security Council resolutions, those adopted in the General Assembly are non-binding.

Israeli ambassador Danny Danon slammed the resolution as "empowering Hamas".

"I have a simple message for those who support this resolution. You are the ammunition for Hamas's guns, you are the warheads for its missiles," he said.

Over 130 Palestinians have been martyred by "Israel" during the protests along the border with Gaza that began on March 30. 

"We cannot remain silent in the face of the most violent crimes and human rights violations being systematically perpetrated against our people," said Riyad Mansour, Palestinian envoy to the UN.
