The United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) will vote today (Thursday) on a U.S.-drafted resolution condemning egregious violations undertaken by the Palestinian Hamas movement.
The organization – which rules the Gaza Strip and has done for the last 11 years – stands accused of numerous actions worthy of international condemnation.
In what will likely be outgoing U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley’s last action at the institution she has consistently accused of having a strong in-built anti-Israel bias, the resolution condemns Hamas and its use of violence, including “repeatedly firing rockets into Israel, using “airborne incendiary devices” and the use of resources to build “military infrastructure” targeting civilians.
Jason Greenblatt, Donald Trump’s special representative for international negotiations tweeted on Wednesday that the root cause of Palestinian suffering in Gaza could laid at Hamas’ door.
