Despite the UN Security Council’s passing of a cease-fire resolution, Israeli attacks on the Palestinian Gaza Strip continue. Israel continues to indiscriminately attack various areas of Gaza including Al-Balah, Az-Zawaida, Al-Balah in the central part of Gaza. Al-Aqsa Hospital’s emergency department is overflowing with injured people.

The Gaza Health Ministry said on Tuesday that at least 32,414 Palestinians have been killed since the start of Israel’s attack on the Gaza Strip on October 7. At least 81 people have been killed in the previous 24 hours. Since the start of the attack, 74 thousand 787 people have been injured in Gaza. Most of the injured are women and children.

Meanwhile, an emergency ceasefire resolution was passed in the besieged Gaza Strip. The resolution passed by the UN Security Council on Monday (March 25) calls for a cease-fire in Gaza as well as the immediate and unconditional release of hostages held by Hamas.

In this proposal, 14 countries of the Security Council voted in favor of the proposal. Israel’s close ally, the United States, abstained from voting.

Welcoming the proposal, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres said, after a long wait, the Security Council has passed a resolution regarding the cease-fire in Gaza. This proposal must be implemented. Failure of any party to implement the ceasefire and its terms would constitute an unforgivable offence.
