UN’s Gaza resolution sign of Israel’s unprecedented global isolation: Hamas chief

Ismail Haniyeh, the political bureau chief of Hamas, says the resolution adopted by the United Nations Security Council demanding an immediate ceasefire between the group and Israel in Gaza shows how much the Israeli regime has become globally isolated as a result of months of aggression on Palestinians.

Haniyeh made the remarks on Tuesday after a meeting in Tehran with Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian and a day after the Security Council adopted its Gaza resolution.

He said that the resolution showed that even the United States, as the main supporter of Israel in its war on Gaza, is no longer able to impose its will on the international community.

He said that "it is a testimony to the unique resilience of the Islamic Resistance and the Palestinian people." 

It is the first time since the start of the war in Gaza in early October that the US has allowed a draft resolution on ceasefire in Gaza to pass the Security Council. Washington had vetoed three such resolutions alleging that any cessation of hostilities in Gaza would allow Hamas to resume attacks on Israel.

That comes as the continued Israeli invasion has pushed Gaza, a Mediterranean Palestinian territory home to some 2.3 million people, to the brink of famine as the Israeli regime continues to block the badly needed aid from reaching people in need.

Haniyeh: Iran stands at forefront of supporting Palestinian cause

More than 32,000 people have been killed in Gaza as a result of the Israeli aggression while more than a million have been displaced from their homes.

In his remarks in Tehran on Tuesday, Haniyeh also thanked Iran for the support it has provided to the people and resistance groups in Gaza in their struggle against the Israeli aggression.

“Iran stands at the forefront of supporting Palestine’s cause and nation,” said the senior Palestinian leader.
