Israel faces international outrage as Gaza offensive rages on

Riyad Mansour, the Palestinian ambassador to the UN, told The Associated Press that it is similar to the Security Council resolution the US vetoed Friday.

Israel’s air and ground war has killed thousands of civilians following Hamas’ Oct. 7 attack that left 1,200 people dead and saw about 240 hostages taken, according to Israeli officials.

Over 100 of them were released during a weeklong cease-fire last month.
