UN Security Council Passes US-Drafted Gaza Ceasefire Resolution

UN Security Council Passes US-Drafted Gaza Ceasefire Resolution
The UN Security Council (UNSC) on Monday, June 10, passed a United States (US)-drafted resolution calling for a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip. This marks the first time the UNSC has supported a ceasefire plan in Gaza since the outbreak of war more than eight months ago.

Details of the Resolution
The three-stage proposal presented by Israel includes a prisoner exchange and a ceasefire during the first and second stages, and reconstruction in the third stage.
Impact of the Conflict
Since October 7, 2023, Israeli forces have been engaged in a devastating war on the Gaza Strip. This conflict has resulted in more than 37,000 deaths and 84,000 injuries. Additionally, it has caused massive infrastructure destruction and an unprecedented humanitarian catastrophe. The passage of this resolution is a significant development in the efforts to bring peace to the region.

The UNSC’s support of the US-drafted ceasefire resolution is a crucial step towards ending the ongoing conflict in Gaza. As the proposal moves forward, it remains to be seen how the different parties involved will respond and whether this effort will lead to lasting peace and reconstruction in the war-torn region.
