U.S. asks UN to condemn Hamas over Gaza violence

U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley on Tuesday slammed a UN draft resolution condemning Israel for Palestinian Arab deaths in Gaza as "fundamentally imbalanced" and instead proposed condemning Hamas for the violence.

The UN General Assembly is set to vote on the Arab-backed measure on Wednesday after more than 120 Palestinians were killed during recent violent riots near the border with Gaza.
