Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas says the United States is “responsible for the bloodshed” of children in the Gaza Strip after it vetoed a resolution yesterday calling for an immediate ceasefire at a special meeting of the UN Security Council.

“The president has described the American position as aggressive and immoral, a flagrant violation of all humanitarian principles and values, and holds the United States responsible for the bloodshed of Palestinian children, women and elderly people in the Gaza Strip,” says a statement from Abbas’s office.

US Deputy Ambassador Robert Wood criticized the council after the vote for its failure to condemn Hamas’s October 7 massacres in Israel — in which thousands of terrorists killed about 1,200 people, mostly civilians, and took about 240 hostages — or to acknowledge Israel’s right to defend itself.
