United States has vetoed a Kuwait-Drafted UN Security Council Resolution that condemned Israel’s use of Force against Palestinian Civilians, Criticizing it as a “grossly one-sided view” that failed to blame Hamas for the recent violence.

Out of the Council’s 15 Members, 10 voted in favor, including France, and only the United States voted against. There were four abstentions including Britain.

A resolution needs nine votes in favor and no vetoes by the United States, Britain, France, Russia or China to be adopted.
