Israel War Day-138: Israel's Continuing Strikes and Global Backlash

Israel continues its relentless airstrikes in the West Bank, with Palestinians desperately searching for survivors amidst the rubble. The recent attacks have devastated areas like the west of Al Nusairat refugee camp in the southern Gaza Strip. According to the Palestinian Health Ministry and the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), the conflict has resulted in over 29,000 Palestinian and at least 1,300 Israeli fatalities since Hamas militants initiated hostilities on October 7th, sparking Israeli counteroffensives in Gaza and the West Bank.

"The message conveyed today to Israel through this veto is its impunity to perpetrate violence," stated Palestine's UN representative, highlighting international concerns over Israel's actions.

Algeria's ambassador to the UN condemned the rejection of a UN Security Council ceasefire resolution, asserting it condones the use of starvation as a war tactic.

In a separate incident, reports emerged concerning a missile strike in Damascus. Syrian state media identified it as an "Israeli attack" targeting a residential building in the Kafr Sousa district. Social media footage verified by Al Jazeera depicted the aftermath, with the building's facade charred and windows blown out. Witnesses reported consecutive explosions followed by emergency responders rushing to the scene. Authorities cordoned off the area as firefighters battled the blaze.

Global Outcry Over US Veto on Ceasefire Resolution

The United States faced widespread condemnation after vetoing a UN Security Council resolution calling for a ceasefire in Israel's conflict with Gaza. This marked the third veto by the US on such a resolution and came shortly after Washington proposed a resolution linking a temporary ceasefire to the release of all Israeli captives held by Palestinian factions.

China criticized the move, likening it to endorsing further bloodshed, while France expressed regret over the resolution's failure. Hamas placed direct blame on President Joe Biden and his administration for thwarting ceasefire efforts. Cuba accused the US of complicity in Israel's actions against Palestinians.

Dire Conditions in Gaza Amidst Conflict

The ongoing conflict in Gaza has exacerbated poverty and devastation, leaving many residents without adequate footwear. Some are forced to walk barefoot or in tattered shoes, having fled their homes with only the clothes on their backs.

One couple in Gaza takes turns wearing the same worn-out pair of sandals, unable to afford replacements amidst the chaos. A local cobbler highlighted the worsening situation, noting that while initially, people could afford shoe repairs, they now lack the means to even purchase basic necessities, let alone repair shoes.
