Event: Draft Security Council Resolution S/2006/878

User login

The majority (10 members) of the Security Council vote in favor of a draft that condemns "the military operations being carried out by Israel, the occupying Power, in the Gaza Strip, in particular the attack that took place in Beit Hanoun on 8 November 2006" and requests the Secretary-General "to establish a fact-finding mission on the attack that took place in Beit Hanoun." The draft calls upon Israel to immediately cease its military operations. The United Kingdom abstains and the US vetoes the draft.
