By a majority of 120 members, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution calling for an immediate, permanent and sustainable humanitarian truce leading to the cessation of hostilities and the immediate and unhindered provision of basic goods and services to civilians throughout Gaza.
120 members of the United Nations voted in favor of the resolution, 14 rejected it, and 45 countries abstained from voting.
Although the resolution is not binding, it gains great political importance and reflects global trends and the extent of international solidarity with Palestine, at a time when the occupation is intensifying its ground operations in Gaza.
The resolution was submitted to a vote due to the “seriousness of the situation” in Gaza, where the Zionist aggression has continued since October 7, when the Palestinian resistance, led by the Al-Qassam Brigades, launched the “Al-Aqsa Flood” operation.
The resolution includes an “immediate, permanent and continuous humanitarian truce leading to a cessation of fighting,” and a previous version calling for an “immediate ceasefire” was rejected by the occupation.
The resolution also calls for providing basic needs to civilians in Gaza, such as water, food, fuel, and electricity “immediately” and “in sufficient quantities,” as well as ensuring humanitarian access “without obstacles.”
After the launch of Operation “Al-Aqsa Flood,” the occupation army began launching raids on the Gaza Strip, imposing a tight siege on the Strip, which is inhabited by about 2.2 million people. The Ministry of Health in Gaza announced the martyrdom of 7,326 Palestinians during these raids, the majority of whom were civilians.
On the other hand, the decision faces criticism from the occupation, as the entity’s ambassador, Gilad Erdan, considered that its place “is in the dustbin of history.”
It is noteworthy that the Security Council had failed over the past few days to pass 4 resolutions, two from Russia, an American resolution, and another from Brazil.
