United Nations General Assembly Urges Immediate Humanitarian Ceasefire in Israeli Regime's Gaza Conflict

The United Nations General Assembly overwhelmingly passed a resolution on Tuesday, urging for an immediate humanitarian ceasefire in the months-long conflict between the Israeli regime and the Gaza Strip.

Iran (IMNA) - With 153 votes in favor, out of the 193-member assembly, the resolution gained significant support. However, nine countries, including the United States, voted against the resolution, highlighting their consistent political backing for the Israeli regime. It is important to note that the United States lacks veto power within the General Assembly, unlike the UN Security Council, where it has previously thwarted similar resolutions.

In a significant development, the United States has furnished Tel Aviv with over 10,000 tons of military equipment in support of their ongoing conflict with Gaza. The war was initiated by Tel Aviv on October 7 as a response to an operation carried out by resistance groups in the Palestinian territory. Tragically, Gaza's Health Ministry has reported a staggering death toll of 18,205 Palestinians, with the majority being women and children. Additionally, nearly 50,000 others have been wounded during the Israeli military campaign. Palestinian UN Ambassador, Riyad Mansour, hailed the General Assembly vote as a reflection of global public sentiment and emphasized that the US cannot continue to overlook this immense influence.

"In a press statement, the speaker emphasized the shared responsibility to persevere in pursuing a resolution to the ongoing hostilities against our population and putting an end to the war waged upon our people. The paramount duty lies in safeguarding lives," Riyad Mansour conveyed to journalists.

On the weekend, the head of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) characterized the situation in Gaza as the most dire he has ever witnessed.

Philippe Lazzarini warned that his organization was on the brink of collapse in Gaza, underscoring the urgent necessity for an immediate ceasefire to halt the unfolding "horrors of an apocalyptic nature" in the region.
