Joe Biden criticized from all sides over UN ceasefire resolution in Gaza

The Security Council passed a resolution calling for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza during Ramadan and the unconditional release of all abductees. The decision was supported by 14 countries, with the United States abstaining from voting and refraining from using its veto power. Netanyahu warned the Israeli delegation that he would cancel their trip to Washington if the US did not veto a ceasefire resolution that did not include the release of hostages, but Netanyahu did not inform President Biden of the delegation’s cancellation. Kirby clarified that the lack of a US veto on the resolution did not signal a shift in policy, emphasizing the importance of tying a ceasefire to the release of hostages. Defense Minister Gallant was scheduled to meet with National Security Adviser Sullivan at the White House to discuss plans for the operation in Rafah and ongoing efforts to secure the release of hostages.
