The UN Security Council has voted on a draft resolution submitted by Malta calling for humanitarian truces in Gaza.
12 countries voted in favor of the resolution, while three countries abstained from voting.
Malta’s delegate to the United Nations said that the humanitarian crisis in Gaza is very disturbing and hospitals are in grave danger.
The draft resolution approved by the Security Council calls for the immediate and unconditional release of all “hostages” held by Hamas and other factions.
The draft resolution approved by the Security Council also calls for urgent and extended humanitarian truces and the establishment of safe corridors throughout the Gaza Strip.
The Security Council resolution also calls for an urgent and extended truce throughout the Gaza Strip for a sufficient number of days to allow aid to arrive.
The resolution does not condemn the Hamas movement, which the United States sought, nor does it call for a ceasefire, which Russia has repeatedly called for.
