US Urges Temporary Truce in UN Document Amid Israel-Gaza Conflict

The U.S. has submitted a draft resolution at the UN Security Council, signaling a shift in its approach by calling for a temporary ceasefire in Gaza. The resolution also carries a warning to Israel against entering the densely populated city of Rafah. This marks a departure from previous instances where the U.S. refrained from using the term “ceasefire” during UN votes on the conflict. President Joe Biden had made similar remarks recently.

In contrast, the U.S. plans to veto another draft resolution presented by Algeria, which urges an immediate humanitarian ceasefire. The focus of concern is on Rafah, where over a million displaced Palestinians, roughly half of Gaza’s population, have sought refuge. The city, originally home to 250,000 people, is now grappling with makeshift shelters, squalid conditions, and limited access to essentials like clean water and food.

The UN has raised alarms, warning that an Israeli offensive in Rafah could result in a humanitarian catastrophe. Israel initiated its operations in Gaza following an attack by Hamas gunmen in southern Israel. The conflict has led to a considerable loss of life and a large number of displaced individuals in the Palestinian territory.

Under immense international pressure to influence Israel’s actions, the U.S. has crafted a draft resolution opposing Israel’s plans for a major ground offensive in Rafah. The resolution emphasizes potential harm to civilians, further displacement, and the destabilization of regional peace and security.

The draft calls for a temporary ceasefire in Gaza, aligning with President Biden’s recent statements in discussions with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. While the U.S. has previously vetoed resolutions using the term “ceasefire,” this marks the first time it has advocated for a temporary halt to hostilities in Gaza at the UN.

The Security Council will engage in talks on the U.S. draft, although it remains unclear when or if a vote will take place. This move signifies a notable adjustment in the U.S. position and approach regarding the conflict in Gaza, garnering attention on the international stage.
