U.S. vetoes U.N. resolution denouncing violence against Palestinians


The United States vetoed on Friday a Kuwait-drafted U.N. Security Council resolution that condemned Israel’s use of force against Palestinian civilians, criticizing it as a “grossly one-sided view” that failed to blame Hamas for the recent violence, APA reports quoting Reuters.

 

“The terrorist group Hamas bears primary responsibility for the awful living conditions in Gaza,” Nikki Haley, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, said ahead of the vote.

 

She criticized the resolution for not mentioning Hamas once.
