HRW: US veto gives Israel 'diplomatic cover' for Gaza atrocities

Human Rights Watch United Nations Director Louis Charbonneau said in a post on X that the United States' decision to veto a draft resolution on the Gaza ceasefire gives Israel a "diplomatic cover" to carry out atrocities in the enclave.

"By continuing to provide Israel with weapons and diplomatic cover as it commits atrocities, including collectively punishing the Palestinian civilian population in Gaza, the US risks complicity in war crimes," Charbonneau warned.

Meanwhile, Palestinian Ambassador to the UN Riyad Mansour also expressed his satisfaction with the move, underlining that the Palestinian people are "angry and frustrated because they see this massive Israeli war machine killing them in the thousands, and yet the Security Council has been paralyzed."
