Israel-Hamas War: The resolution for ceasefire between Israel and Hamas in Gaza was passed in the United Nations General Assembly. 120 countries voted in favor of this proposal, while 14 countries voted against it. At the same time, 45 countries including India and Britain did not participate in the voting. Let us tell you that this proposal was presented by Jordan. The big thing is that 14 countries including America voted against the proposal. This resolution called for stopping the war in Gaza, providing humanitarian aid and maintaining the safety of civilians.
Why did India distance itself from the proposal?
India has said that there is no mention of terrorist group Hamas in it, due to which we abstained from voting on the draft. It is not that India is supporting the war. India has already expressed concern over the Israel-Hamas war in the United Nations. India has also urged both sides to reduce tension and stay away from violence. Apart from India, the countries that abstained from the vote included Australia, Canada, Germany, Japan, Ukraine and the UK.
Demand raised to amend the proposal
Some countries have talked about amending the proposal. It was also asked to insert a paragraph in it. It is being said that it should be written in the resolution that the General Assembly clearly rejects and condemns the terrorist attacks and hostage-taking incident by Hamas that took place in Israel on 7 October 2023. Hostages should be treated humanely and their immediate and unconditional release should be ensured.
Thousands have died in the war so far
Let us tell you that due to the Hamas-Israel war, there is devastation in Gaza. So far, more than 7 thousand people have died in Gaza due to the war, while more than 19 thousand are said to be injured. The dead include more than 3000 children. At the same time, more than 1400 people have died in Israel in the Hamas attack, while thousands of people are injured. This war started on October 7, it is still difficult to say when it will end.
