The suggested United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) scheduled to take place tomorrow  (Wednesday) concerning the violence on the Gaza Border is one-sided.

The Israeli Embassy in Wellington states: “This resolution makes no reference to the Hamas terror organisation, a world-recognized terror organization (including New Zealand) that is covering up its domestic failures with provocations against Israel while cynically sending its people to risk their lives on the border. It is important to note that the border fence was built after the complete Israeli withdrawal from Gaza in order to stop suicide bombings and terror attacks.

Israel’s response has been and continues to be based on international law and is matching up to the danger of its citizens. Make no mistake, such a resolution will dissuade the Palestinian side from engaging in constructive negotiations and will encourage Hamas to continue their destructive and violent behavior.”
