Tokyo, Reuters – After the cowardly Hamas attack on October 7, Israel has been conducting consecutive air strikes on the Gaza Strip. These strikes have claimed the lives of thousands of people.

Russia and China vetoed the United Nations resolution proposed by the United States
On Wednesday, Russia and China vetoed the United Nations Security Council’s resolution, which was prepared by the United States, regarding the conflict between Israel and Palestinian militants Hamas in the Gaza Strip. The purpose of the resolution was to address the deteriorating humanitarian crisis in Gaza and call for a cessation of violence to allow aid to reach.
The United Arab Emirates also abstained from voting, while 10 members voted in favor, and two were absent. Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations, Gilad Erdan, said, ‘If this resolution genuinely focuses on the humanitarian situation, as it was presented, a common note will not be signed on more than 220 hostages held by Hamas. This will be the first demand.’
