The UN resolution to condemn the attack of Hamas on Israel which was signed by the United States, was rejected by China and Russia prompting Israeli Ambassador Gilad Erdan to slam Russia and China by saying that these countries might give a more forceful reply if they had faced a similar massacre. Gilad Erdan said, “In Israel, we are fighting for our very survival…If any of your countries endured a similar massacre, I am certain that you would act with much greater force than Israel.”
He kept on saying while pointing to Russia, “There would be no question in your mind that such a barbaric slaughter requires a broad military operation against the terrorists who committed such inhumane atrocities to eradicate their terrorist capabilities in order to make sure that such atrocities can never happen again,” This fierce statement from the Israeli envoy came on Wednesday, October 25, 2023, at the UN Security Council, after China and Russia rejected the US-authored draft resolution on the Middle East.
The Israeli Ambassador to the UN expressed his shock over China and Russia vetoed the US-authored resolution. He said those who have vetoed the US-led resolution have shown the world that this council is incompetent in doing the most basic task of condemning ISIS-like terrorists (Hamas) and cannot secure the right to self-defense of the victim of these blatant crimes. “Israel has been attacked and continues to be attacked,” said Erdan.
