bolivia china called the war it what auriol guinea france kazakhstan piru sweden and the russian federation for standing firmly on principle for responding to the urgency of the situation and for standing unequivocally underside of international law when it comes to palestine including on the protection of civilians indeed today's vote sends important messages that must be recognized including the following one there is a severe protection crisis in the occupied palestinian territory including east jerusalem and particularly in the gaza strip due to israeli's illegal policies and practices including its use of force against palestinian civilians including peaceful protesters and its blockade on gaza among other oppressive and punitive measures against our people to the rallies killing and injuring of palestinian
5:11 pm
civilians will not be tolerated and cannot be excused and the occupying power must be fully abide by its obligations under international law three the palestinian people are entitle to protection in accordance with international law including humanitarian and human rights law and with the sick the security council's obligations and commitments for the protection of civilians in armed conflict for immediate steps must be taken towards ending israelis gloria and the reste restrictions on gaza and ensuring the sustained opening of the crossing points for the normal movement and access or persons and goods this entirely illegal inhumane and suffocating israeli blockade must end. fyfe maximum restraint is required by all parties as well as immediate steps to
5:12 pm
stabilize the situation and reverse the negative trends on the ground and six it is time to seriously consider matters for granting the safety protection and will being of the palestinian people including through the establishment of an international protection mechanism i repeat including through the establishment of an international protection mechanism the palestinian leadership including president mahmoud abbas has long called for such matters and we are grateful that this spite all the pressures this issue has been given due consideration by the security council and has received the majority support of the council's members. your votes today refute the premise that the palestinian people are the exception
5:13 pm
to the rules and principles of international law instead reaffirming that they are entitled to the rights and legal protections to which all peoples are entitled reinforcing the universality of the law and its application to this conflict you have rejected the might of our right strategy let me repeat you have rejected the might override strategy sending a clear message that no one is exempt from the law not even israel regardless of the exceptionalism it has for too long enjoyed mr president of course the final outcome of today's vote is extremely disappointing but unfortunately not surprising while we sincerely hope and exerted all efforts to ensure that the security council would uphold its charter duties and act responsibly to address the
5:14 pm
protection crisis being indued by the palestinian people we never underestimated the obstacles in this regard. we deeply regret the council's continued paralysis on our issue due to the current negative and biased position of one pair when a member of the security council we deplore the use of the veto to continue shielding israel from ensure from censors from censor and accountability for its crimes against our people and wrongly preventing the council from upholding is charter beauty for the mental and of international peace and security including by actions aimed at saving civilian lives moreover we strongly reject cynical attempts to delay undermine and thought action on this initiative in a manner denigrating the council's work and the serious effort to address these
5:15 pm
critical matters in accordance with international law and the relevant there is a lucian's we also firmly reject the attempt once more today to classify our situation as one of terrorism it is not classifying our situation as one of terrorism we reject that it is not it is about the denial of an entire people's human rights and their oppression and dehumanization every single day and for decades this is a political territorial rights and justice issue. and we cannot accept the lecturing accusations that the draft presented by kuwait was in and any way biased that draft which was negotiated for over two weeks realistically addressed all of the factors of the current crisis including violence in both sides if
5:16 pm
anything however that draft they're not go far enough in addressing the nightmare the palestinian people are living under this criminal israeli occupation what we are facing can be described in just a few words the clip declared this week by the israeli minister you have all that and it's a ten at sea and i quote i do not exclude the possibility of conquering the and to eliminate it once and for all and of course asian this is the reality of the constant aggression threats and existential crises the palestinian people are enduring under israeli occupation which the current us administration regrettably refuses to see if real is to get it or
5:17 pm

5:19 pm
if we see the same amount of wounded arriving in your speed doors as what we saw on the fourteenth of may would simply have hundreds of patients leading to death in the parking lot. was. tens of i've already lost some of their limbs and became amputees and follows an arms have been wounded including several thousands by live ammunition that's something that is overwhelming for any help system in the world the axillary deterioration of the humanitarian situation has affected all speed tours has afflicted all key infrastructure so the capacity of the system to cope with this new influx is extremely limited and this is why the i.c.r.c. he says well. it's capacity to whence where we've as a medical needs you're in gaza.
5:20 pm

5:23 pm
and it is up to all of us to abide by the mandate of the popular sovereignty represented here i believe that today we're opening a new page in the history of our democracy and we will now start reading the first paragraph i can tell you without hesitation that we in the new government will put the interests of the spanish people above all well socialist party made a predator santy it is now spain's new prime minister that followed a vote of confidence which he called a week ago in response to a high court ruling which sentenced several leading. figures in marianna. people's party to have to jail sentences following a long running corruption scandal including the party's former treasurer it looked like a long shot at first because centrist only commands eighty four seats out of a three hundred fifty member chamber however one by one crucially opposition. parties including social likely rivals all day most fractious regional parties in
5:24 pm
catalonia and the basque country added up their support and reached the crucial tally of one hundred eighteen votes with just hundred sixty nine in against and that was when marianna wrote holy finally realized that the game was up. let's return now to new york where israel's representative to the un is giving me his take on the situation. security is a balloon about the recent events in gather the revolution did not even mention. this bad hamas is deadly activity than attacks. you're tempted to breach the security fence and infiltrate israel it's incitement of the people of gaza its use of innocent palestinian women and children as human shields the human rights council chose to turn
5:25 pm
a blind eye. today to the security council have attempted to adopt a similar with aleutian we recognize the united states and all who did not support this resolution for their moral clarity the security council also had the opportunity to add that there with allusion proposed by the united states this with illusion rightly names hamas in the other terrorist groups either would cause of the conflict it's recognized that peace and stability will never come to a region until the international community the brave enough to call out the terrorists by name we think there may be counts for taking the right stand and battle halley you made clear today that they would of the game are changing here in this consul and this double standard against israel will not stand.
5:26 pm
