The United States has submitted a draft resolution to the UN Security Council calling for an “immediate ceasefire” in the Palestinian Gaza Strip.

US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said the proposal was linked to the release of Israeli hostages.

Blinken is currently on a tour of the Middle East. He will stop over in Israel.

The United States, Israel’s main backer, has vetoed previous UN Security Council votes on the nearly six-month-old Gaza war. Algeria recently submitted a draft ceasefire proposal. The proposal called for an ‘immediate ceasefire’. But the US objected to an “immediate” ceasefire and vetoed it.

But Washington has recently stepped up pressure on its ally, insisting the immediate release of hostages taken during the attack on Israel.

He said, “We have a proposal that we have put before the United Nations Security Council right now.” It is related to the release of hostages. At the same time, there is a call for an immediate ceasefire in the resolution. We hope the countries of the world will support it.
