In an unexpected move, the US has abstained from a vote on a UNSC resolution calling for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.

Angry Netanyahu answered by canceling an official visit by an Israeli delegation to Washington.

All of this is happening against the backdrop of continued Israeli attacks on Gaza hospitals and growing Palestinian Resistance throughout the Strip. 

According to Gaza’s Ministry of Health, 32,333 Palestinians have been killed, and 74,694 wounded in Israel’s ongoing genocide in Gaza starting on October 7.
