Israel-Hamas war: UN Security Council to vote on ceasefire resolution

Foreign Affairs Correspondent

Delegates at the UN security council will vote later tonight on the ceasefire resolution – but the United States has already said it would not support an “immediate truce”, saying Hamas “has no desire to see a durable peace” for both Israelis and Palestinians.

But they also warned Israel it must do more to minimise harm to civilians – and to avoid further mass displacement of people who’ve fled to southern Gaza.
