14 Countries Reject Israel’s Ceasefire, Including RI’s Neighbors News – 34 minutes ago

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu confirmed that his party rejects a ceasefire in Israel’s war against Hamas.

It turns out, there were 14 countries that rejected a ceasefire in Gaza, Palestine in a vote carried out by the United Nations (UN) General Assembly at the 10th Emergency Special Session meeting, Friday (27/10/2023) United States (US) time .

Israel and the US are parties that are part of the group that rejects the ceasefire between Israel and the Palestinian Islamic group, Hamas. Apart from Israel and the US, the following is a list of 14 countries that rejected the call for a ceasefire:

Marshall Islands
Federated States of Micronesia
Republic of Nauru
Papua New Guinea
United States of America

Meanwhile, 120 other countries agreed to the Israel-Hamas ceasefire, while 45 others abstained or did not vote. Meanwhile, Indonesia is included in the group of countries that agreed to the call for a ceasefire.

Based on these results, the UN General Assembly called for an immediate, durable and sustainable humanitarian ceasefire between Israel and Hamas. The UN also demands unimpeded aid access to the besieged Gaza Strip.

In addition, the UN also demands all parties to “immediately and fully comply” with obligations under international humanitarian and human rights (HAM) law.

The major resolution did not mention the name of Hamas, which held around 220 civilians captured in a devastating attack on October 7, 2023.

However, they called for the “immediate and unconditional release” of all illegally held civilians and demanded their safety and humane treatment, as well as condemning attacks on Palestinian and Israeli civilians.

Unfortunately, this motion drafted by Jordan is not binding, but it has political weight that reflects the extent to which the US and Israel are isolated internationally as Israel steps up its ground operations.

Meanwhile, the effort to demand the immediate release of the hostages was approved by 88 to 55, failing to win the required two-thirds majority. This is in line with US and Israeli pressure.

At first, Jordan demanded an immediate ceasefire. However, in an effort to maximize support, Jordan changed the plan by calling for an immediate and sustainable humanitarian ceasefire leading to a cessation of hostilities.

For your information, this is the first time the UN has had a collective view regarding the Middle East crisis, after four attempts to reach a common position on the 15-member UN Security Council failed due to vetoes used by Russia or America.
