UNGA adopts resolution condemning Israel for Palestinian deaths in Gaza


United Nations General Assembly, UNGA has adopted an Arab-backed resolution condemning Israel for Palestinian deaths in Gaza. The resolution deplored excessive use of force by Israel, and requested recommendations to protect Palestinians. The resolution put forward by Algeria and Turkey on behalf of Arab and Muslim countries. In the 193-nation Assembly, which met last night, 120 countries voted in favor of the resolution, while 8 voted against it. 45 nations abstained.

A bid by the United States to present an amendment, condemning Hamas, failed to garner two-third majority needed for adoption. Hundred and twenty Palestinians have been killed and hundreds wounded by Israeli soldiers stationed on the Israeli side, since the weekly protests began on 30th March near the Gaza border.
