UN Security Council Urges Immediate Ceasefire in Gaza

The UN Security Council has urged Israel and Hamas to immediately end the Gaza conflict, a call that follows 13 days of fighting with more than 800 people dead and thousands wounded.

The 15-nation Security Council voted 14-0 late Thursday, Jan. 8, with the United States abstaining, to adopt the resolution demanding the ceasefire.















The ceasefire resolution came after three days long of intense, closed-door negotiations at United Nations headquarters to hammer out a compromise or in another words to tone down the text till it became acceptable to all of permanent members with veto power(namely the United States, France, Britain, Russia and China).
