U.S. Blocks United Nations Resolution Calling for Probe Into Gaza Violence
Featured News Story May 15th, 2018
The United States has blocked a UN resolution that would investigate the clash between Israelis and Palestinians at the Gaza border on Monday. Supporters of the probe argue that Israel used unnecessary force, leading to the deaths of more than 50 Palestinians who were protesting as the U.S. moved its embassy to Jerusalem. Detractors, however, emphasize the violent nature of the protests, asserting that Israel had to defend its border from antagonistic forces.
