U.N. Security Council urges 'full adherence' to Israeli/Hamas ceasefire

·1 min read

NEW YORK, May 22 (Reuters) - The United Nations Security Council on Saturday called for “the full adherence” to a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas-led Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip and stressed the immediate need for humanitarian aid for Palestinian civilians.

The 15-member council issued a statement, which had to be agreed by consensus, after being unable to speak during the 11-day conflict due to opposition by the United States. The French mission to the United Nations said it has put on hold its push for a resolution on the issue. (Reporting by Michelle Nichols; Editing by Leslie Adler)
