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

United Nations Calls for Immediate Ceasefire in Gaza Strip during Ramadan as Death Toll Rises to 32,300

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

UN Secretary General António Guterres announced the resolution on social media, calling for an immediate ceasefire and the release of all hostages. The resolution was approved with 14 votes in favor, no votes against, and one abstention from the United States. Russia had proposed an amendment to the resolution, 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 United States 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.
