Joe Biden faces criticism from all sides over UN ceasefire resolution in Gaza

The United Nations Security Council has recently passed a resolution calling for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza during Ramadan and the unconditional release of all abductees. Fourteen countries voted in favor of the decision, with the United States abstaining from voting and refraining from using its veto power. The Security Council emphasized the urgent need to increase aid to Gaza and demanded the removal of any obstacles hindering its transfer.

Prior to the Security Council vote, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that he would cancel the Israeli delegation’s trip to Washington if the US did not veto a resolution for a ceasefire that did not include the release of hostages. However, Netanyahu did not inform President Biden of the cancellation. The Prime Minister expressed disappointment in the US for not vetoing the resolution, calling it a departure from their previous consistent position.

In response, White House spokesman John Kirby clarified that the US decision not to veto the resolution did not signify a change in policy. Kirby affirmed that the US believes a ceasefire and the release of hostages should go hand in hand. Defense Minister Gallant was scheduled to meet with National Security Adviser Sullivan at the White House to discuss plans for the operation in Rafah and focus on advancing the hostage agreement and providing aid to Gaza.
