The United Nations General Assembly on Friday night approved the draft resolution proposed by the Arab countries and called for an immediate humanitarian ceasefire and cessation of hostilities in Gaza.

Iran PressAmerica: The draft resolution, which was presented by nearly 50 countries, including Türkiye, Palestine, Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), was approved by a vote of 120-14, with 45 nations abstaining.

Adopted at the 10th Emergency Special Session meeting on the situation in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, the draft resolution expresses "grave concern" over the "latest escalation of violence" since Hamas' Oct. 7 attack on Israel.

The resolution condemned "all acts of violence against Palestinian and Israeli civilians, including all acts of terror and indiscriminate attacks, as well as all acts of provocation, incitement and destruction."

It also demanded that "all parties immediately and fully comply with their obligations under international law."

Before the vote, Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman al-Safadi said that voting against this resolution "means approving this war and brutal killing".

He wrote on X social network: Millions of people watch every voting session and history will judge this.

As concerns over the escalation of the war have grown, the UN General Assembly in its resolution stressed the "importance of preventing further instability and escalation of violence in the region".

This forum also asks "all parties to exercise maximum restraint and all those who have influence over the parties to work to achieve this goal".

The death toll in Gaza since the start of Israeli aggression has reached over 7,400 with more than 20,500 wounded.
