Tel Aviv does not have the right to target civilians in Gaza, says Russia

The Russian Foreign Ministry stated that Tel Aviv does not have the right to kill civilians in the Gaza Strip.

Earlier, Russia and China exercised their veto power in the United Nations Security Council to block a draft resolution put forward by the United States concerning the recent events in Gaza.

The US resolution aimed to condemn the Hamas operation that took place on October 7. However, Russia successfully thwarted the proposal, highlighting what it saw as a significant omission.

The Chinese delegate to the Security Council emphasized a crucial point: the American draft resolution failed to acknowledge the longstanding occupation of Palestine. This omission led China to throw its support behind the Russian draft resolution addressing the situation in Gaza.

The United Arab Emirates also voted against the resolution, while 10 members voted in favor, and two abstained.

This comes as Operation Aqsa Typhoon, launched by Al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, continues for the 20th consecutive day in response to Israeli Occupation violations in the occupied Palestinian territories, which have been ongoing for decades.

In retaliation, the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) has launched a campaign against the Gaza Strip, conducting a series of airstrikes in various areas.
