UNITED NATIONS — The Palestinian Authority’s envoy to the United Nations says the overwhelming vote in favor of a humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza, in which 153 countries backed a downing of arms, marks a “historic day.”

“Today was a historic day in terms of the powerful message that was sent from the General Assembly. And it is our collective duty to continue in this path until we see an end to this aggression against our people,” says the PA Ambassador to the UN Riyad Mansour.
