U.S. Vetoes UNSC Gaza Ceasefire Resolution for Third Time

HeadlineFeb 21, 2024

The U.S. vetoed a U.N. Security Council resolution calling for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza. It was the third ceasefire veto issued by the U.S. at the U.N. body. This is Palestinian U.N. Ambassador Riyad Mansour.

Riyad Mansour: “The message given today to Israel with this veto is that it can continue to get away with murder. Israel cannot and should not and will not get away with it. We will not allow it. This veto does not absolve Israel of its obligations, nor of those who shield it.”

The U.S. circulated its own resolution proposal this week calling for a “temporary ceasefire as soon as practicable.”
