Hamas regrets the failure of the UN Security Council to condemn Israeli violence against unarmed Palestinians, the group said Saturday.

The Palestinian resistance movement also condemned “U.S. positions that influenced barring UN resolutions in favor of Palestine.”

“The U.S. biased policy to the Israeli occupation will only provide cover for committing more crimes against innocent Palestinian civilians,” it said in a statement.

And it asserted greater effort is needed to “strongly support the rights of the Palestinian people and thwart all policies supporting the Israeli occupation”.

The Security Council on Friday convened an emergency session at Kuwait’s request after 17 Palestinians were killed by the Israeli army during a peaceful protest in the Gaza Strip

During closed-door meetings, diplomats demanded a joint statement be issued by the Council, but they could not agree on language and decided to meet in an open session.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas declared a day of national mourning Saturday, according to the official WAFA news agency.

  1. FROM THE RIVER TO THE SEA
    PALESTINIANS SHALL BE FREE
    BECAUSE STONE-SLINGING,
    FACE-SLAPPING PALESTINIAN “DAVIDS”
    SHALL FOREVER PREVAIL
    AGAINST MILITARISED “GOLIATHS”
    FROM ZIONIST ISREAL

  2. Security Council is not an impartial entity. The powers permanent that sit there are always daggers drawn (hdden) at each other and as such, they will never allow any of their allies to suffer. That is why, no issue of global importance has ever been resolved that does not hinder any one of these powers in any way.
