Israel hails US for vetoing Security Council resolution seeking Gaza ceasefire

Israel’s envoy to the United Nations thanks American President Joe Biden for “standing steadfastly” with Israel, after the US vetoed a Security Council resolution seeking an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.

“A little light rejected a lot of darkness,” Ambassador Gilad Erdan says in a statement, alluding to Hanukkah.

“It is shocking that when Hamas is firing rockets at Gush Dan from population centers in southern Gaza, the UN is busy with a disconnected deliberation about a distorted resolution that is directed at the wrong side and does not even condemn Hamas,” the ambassador adds.

“A ceasefire is possible, only with the return of all the hostages and destruction of Hamas.”
