Addressing the UN Security Council, Israeli Ambassador Gilad Erdan says the forum should call on Hamas to hold fire if it wants to end the fighting in Gaza.

“Why is this draft resolution not directed at Yahya Sinwar and Ismail Haniyeh?” he says, referring to the terror group’s leaders. “Do you not know who was responsible for ending the previous ceasefire and reigniting hostilities?”

Erdan says Hamas is “solely responsible” for the humanitarian situation in Gaza and should be held “fully accountable” by the Security Council.

He also notes the start of Hanukkah last night.

“I pray that we see another Hanukkah miracle here in the UN, and that the almighty will allow the truth and light to prevail here in this council,” he says.
