U.S. Submits Ceasefire Resolution to UNSC; Netanyahu Tells GOP Israel Will Continue Attacking Gaza

HeadlineMar 21, 2024

On the diplomatic front, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken is in Egypt today after a stop in Saudi Arabia. At the United Nations, the U.S. has submitted a draft resolution to the U.N. Security Council for an immediate temporary ceasefire in Gaza tied to the release of hostages.

Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Republican senators in a closed-door video conference that Israel would continue its assault on Gaza. Netanyahu reportedly blasted Democratic Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, who has called for new elections in Israel and turned down Netanyahu’s request to address Democrats.

This comes as over 100 Democratic donors and activists have written to President Biden’s campaign warning the president’s support for Israel’s assault could cost him the election, saying, “Because of the disillusionment of a critical portion of the Democratic coalition, the Gaza war is increasing the chances of a Trump victory.”
