Russian envoy calls American proposal politically motivated

Russia's Ambassador to the UN Vasily Nebenzya has accused the US of trying to block UNSC decisions so that there is no impact on Israel's attack on Gaza. He criticized the US resolution for failing to call for a ceasefire and for not including a condemnation of attacks on civilians in Gaza.

Israel's ambassador said this for America

After the US proposal was rejected, Israel's Ambassador to the UN Gilad Erdan said that he wanted to thank the US and other members of this council who supported this proposal. The resolution clearly condemns brutal terrorists and empowers member states to defend themselves against terrorism. It shows that despite all the lies spread in the halls of the United Nations, there are still people who stand up for the values of freedom and security. He said that in Israel, we are fighting for our survival. If a similar genocide occurs in any country, it will face it with much more force than Israel.
