Facade of Neutrality Masks UN Bias

The United Nations on Tuesday condemned the firing of a rocket from Gaza into Israel, which was the first of its kind since the ceasefire deal that ended the Pillar of Defense counter-terror operation in Gaza in late 2012. "This was the longest period without projectiles fired from Gaza in recent years, and both sides should work to consolidate the calm that prevailed before today," UN political chief Jeffrey Feltman told a UN Security Council meeting on the Middle East.
