"The UN Security Council met in an emergency meeting today to discuss the situation in Gaza. The UN called on both sides to stop the violence and avoid killing civilians. “80% of those killed in Gaza were civilians. Many of them are children,” UN Under-Secretary General Valerie Amos stated."
"Israel’s Ambassador to the UN Ron Prosor was outraged. “Hamas kidnaps, fires, and then blames Israel. Do not forget to mention that they use their own people as human shields.”"
"The Israeli Ambassador also stated: “Hamas is someone who commits a double war crime, against Israel and against their own people, but I hear no one condemning Hamas. Hamas themselves fire from hospitals in Gaza.”"
