Event: Draft Security Council Resolution S/2004/783

User login

The majority (11 members) of the Security Council vote in favor of a draft that condemns "the broad military incursion and attacks by the Israeli occupying forces in the area of Northern Gaza Strip, including in and around the Jabaliya refugee camp, resulting in extensive human casualties and destruction and exacerbating the dire humanitarian situation" and demands "the immediate cessation of all military operations in the area of Northern Gaza and the withdrawal of the Israeli occupying forces from that area." The United Kingdom abstains and the US vetoes the draft.
