U.S. Will Veto Yet Another UN Security Council Resolution Demanding a Gaza Ceasefire

March 23, 2024 (EIRNS)—The group of 22 Arab nations backed by Russia and China are expected to present yet another resolution to the UN Security Council on Monday, March 25 demanding an immediate ceasefire in Gaza, according to the Times of Israel. It demands “a humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, but the United States warned the measure could hurt negotiations to pause the Israel-Hamas war, and is unlikely to back it.”

The ToI account continued: “The 22-nation Arab Group at the UN issued a statement on Friday night [March 22] appealing to all 15 council members `to act with unity and urgency’ and vote for the resolution `to halt the bloodshed, preserve human lives and avert further human suffering and destruction… It is long past time for a ceasefire,’ the Arab Group said. Ramadan began March 10 and ends April 9.”
