Foreign Minister Israel Katz thanks the US for vetoing a Security Council resolution aimed at granting full member status to the Palestinians at the UN.

Katz says the initiative would have amounted to a “reward for terrorism” just six months after Hamas’s October 7 onslaught.

The foreign minister also blasts the Security Council for having failed to condemn Hamas since the attack.

“There will be no rewards for terrorism. Israel will continue to fight until the fall of Hamas and the release of all 133 Israeli hostages,” Katz tweets.
