Security Council in a Deadlock Over Gaza

The UN Security Council hit a deadlock on Monday on a statement on the Gaza conflict, with the United States saying it opposes any action that undermines efforts to reach a ceasefire, AFP reported.

Russia warned that unless an Arab-proposed statement calling for Israel-Hamas hostilities to end was agreed by Tuesday morning it would press for a vote on the full council resolution, setting up a potential veto clash with the United States.
