Palestinian movement Hamas condemns the US veto on a Gaza resolution in the UN Security Council, branding it unethical and inhumane, as reported by Sarbaz.kz citing Al Jazeera.

"HAMAS has labeled the US veto in the UN Security Council as 'unethical and inhumane'," states the channel's website.

According to a member of the movement's politburo, US obstruction of the resolution amounts to "direct participation in killing people and committing new mass murders and ethnic cleansing along with the occupying forces."

Earlier, the US vetoed a UAE-drafted resolution in the UN Security Council, demanding an immediate ceasefire in the Gaza sector and the unconditional release of all hostages. Deputy US Representative Robert Wood explained that the resolution, among other things, did not condemn Hamas and did not reflect Israel's right to self-defense.

On October 7, Israel faced an unprecedented scale of rocket attacks from the Gaza sector within the framework of the "Al-Aqsa Deluge" operation declared by the military wing of the Palestinian movement Hamas. Subsequently, organization fighters penetrated border areas in southern Israel, firing at both military and civilians, and took more than 200 hostages.

According to the latest information from the Israeli authorities, around 1,200 people have died in Israel, including civilians, soldiers, foreign citizens, and workers. It was also reported that more than 5,000 were injured.

In response, the Israel Defense Forces initiated Operation "Iron Swords" against Hamas in the Gaza sector. Over several days, Israeli forces gained control over all populated areas along the Gaza border and began aerial strikes on various targets, including civilian ones, within the sector. Israel also declared a complete blockade of the Gaza sector, halting the supply of water, food, electricity, medicine, and fuel.
