UN Security Council adopts ceasefire resolution in Gaza after nearly 170 days of war

The United Nations Security Council succussed on Monday to adopt a resolution for a ceasefire in Gaza after nearly 170 days of war.

The resolution was issued by the 10 elected countries in the UN, as a total of 14 members voted in favor the resolution, while the U.S. abstained.

According to The Palestinian Health Ministry on Sunday, the number of victims of the Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip had reached 32,070 martyrs and 74,298 injured since October 7.

The ministry added that thousands of Palestinians were still stuck under the rubble amid the continuous Israeli bombardment of the strip.

The Palestinian health statement indicated that the Israeli occupation committed 9 massacres against families in the Gaza Strip during the past 24 hours, killing 82 martyrs and 110 injured, according to Al-Qahera News TV Channel.

On Saturday, United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said at Egypt’s Rafah border crossing that, “Now more than ever, it is time for an immediate ceasefire and the time to silence the guns,”

He added that the holy month of Ramadan is a time for spreading the values of compassion, and peace, but for the people in the Gaza Strip is often marred by continued suffering.  “This year, I came in Rafah in the holy month of Ramadan to participate the hardship and pain with the Palestinians of Gaza,” he said.

While the Palestinians observe Ramadan, they endure the ongoing bombings by Israel and face numerous obstacles in receiving humanitarian aid, he added.

It is the time for ceasing fire and it is the time of “ironclad commitment” by Israel to allow access of humanitarian aid and the time of releasing all captives,” he continued.
