The Security Council of the United Nations will vote today on a draft resolution calling for an immediate ceasefire in the Gaza Strip. The resolution was drafted by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and the Arab Group at the United Nations, and presented by United Arab Emirates, who currently occupy the Arab seat in the Council. According to reports, the draft resolution calls for "an immediate humanitarian ceasefire" in Gaza and "the immediate and unconditional release of all hostages, as well as guaranteeing humanitarian access."


 

Furthermore, the text expresses “grave concern about the catastrophic humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip and the suffering of the Palestinian civilian population, and underlines that the Palestinian and Israeli civilian populations must be protected in accordance with international humanitarian law”. On Wednesday, December 6, the Secretary General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, invoked Article 99 of the United Nations Charter calling on the Security Council to call for a ceasefire, to help avoid a catastrophic humanitarian crisis in Gaza that could have “potentially irreversible implications for the Palestinians as a whole and for the peace and security in the region".
