As the UN Rejects The Ceasefire Resolution, Blinken Warns That The Rafah Onslaught Runs The Risk Of “Further isolating” Israel.

Mr. Blinken stated that he had engaged in “candid conversations” with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. This statement was made the day after Russia and China vetoed a ceasefire resolution that was sponsored by the United States of America at the United Nations Security Council on Friday.

A military ground assault in Rafah “risks killing more civilians,” the Secretary of State of the United States of America stated as he disembarked from Tel Aviv, the last destination of his sixth urgent trip to the region since the beginning of the conflict between Israel and Hamas in October. It runs the risk of causing even more havoc with the aid provided to those in need. According to Mr. Blinken, this puts Israel’s long-term security and standing in jeopardy, as well as the possibility of further isolating the country across the world.

Due to the fact that Israel believes Rafah to be the final major stronghold of Hamas in the beleaguered enclave of Gaza, the Israeli prime minister responded by warning that Israel would “do it alone” if it ended up being required. The comments made by Mr. Blinken come at a time when Russia and China, both permanent members of the United Nations Security Council, have vetoed a motion that was presented on Friday. The motion connected an immediate ceasefire to the release of hostages that were captured by Hamas during the attack on October 7.

The Russian envoy to the United Nations stated that the idea was extremely politicized and would have effectively given Israel permission to start a land offensive in Rafah, which is a city where more than one million Palestinians have taken safety.According to the local health ministry, there are around 32,000 civilians who have died as a result of Israel’s offensive. Israel has been facing increasing pressure to enable more humanitarian aid to reach nearly two million people in Gaza and to better protect civilians.

As a result of the draft, which had been subjected to “many rounds of consultations” with members of the 15-seat council, the United States of America’s posture against Israel became more aggressive.It was “really outrageous and below the dignity of the United Nations Security Council” that the resolution was not passed, according to Linda Thomas-Greenfield, the United States ambassador to the United Nations. Additionally, she stated, “This vote is based on two reasons that are extremely, extremely cynical.” Initially, Russia and China have not yet been able to muster the courage to denounce the terrorist strikes carried out by Hamas on October 7.

There is a refusal on the part of Russia and China to denounce Hamas for being responsible for the burning of people alive, the shooting of innocent civilians at a concert, the raping of women and girls, and the kidnapping of hundreds of people. “This was the deadliest single attack on Jews since the Holocaust – and a permanent member of this council can’t even condemn it.”
