Bulk5NEW YORK (PNIC):-The UN General Assembly is set to vote on Wednesday on a draft resolution condemning the latest Israeli crimes in the besieged Gaza Strip.

The Arab Member States submitted the draft resolution to the UN General Assembly after it was vetoed by Washington at the Security Council.

The draft calls for taking the necessary measures to protect the Palestinian civilians in Gaza after 129 Palestinians have been killed by the Israeli army since the Great March of Return started on 30th March.

Permanent observer of Palestine to the UN Riyad Masnour last Friday announced that the UN General Assembly will hold an emergency session soon on providing international protection for Palestinians in the occupied territories.

Mansour said that a new draft resolution, similar to the Kuwait-drafted one which was blocked by Washington in early June, will be presented in the meeting.

Earlier in June, the US vetoed a draft resolution submitted by Kuwait to the Security Council calling for providing international protection to the Palestinian civilians in Gaza.

Another draft resolution condemning Hamas movement was presented by the US and rejected by the Security Council members.

The Palestinians hope that they win as many votes as possible as they did in the January vote held against the US president Donald Trump' decision to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Trump's decision received 9 votes in favor and 128 against.
