Israel-Day-66: UNGA to Vote on Gaza Ceasefire as EU Considers Measures

The United Nations General Assembly, comprised of 193 member states, is poised for a crucial vote on Tuesday regarding a proposed resolution urging an immediate humanitarian ceasefire between Israel and the Gaza-based Palestinian militant group, Hamas. Diplomats revealed this significant development on Sunday, following the US vetoing a similar plea for an urgent ceasefire in Gaza at the UN Security Council session on Friday.

Amidst escalating tensions, European Union foreign ministers convened on Monday to deliberate potential measures in response to the intensifying Middle East conflict. Discussions included considerations for imposing stringent actions such as targeting Hamas's financial operations and imposing travel restrictions on Israeli settlers involved in violence within the West Bank.

The European Union has already classified Hamas as a terrorist organization, resulting in the freezing of any assets or funds it holds within EU territories, as reported by Reuters. In a recent move, the EU extended its list of sanctioned terrorists to include Mohammed Deif, the Commander General of Hamas's military wing, along with his deputy, Marwan Issa.

Meanwhile, Israel's Civil Aviation Authority issued updated guidelines for safeguarding Israeli communities employing Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) or drones. The directive stipulates that UAV pilots seeking to participate in town defense operations can digitally connect to the UAV control center established in Tel Aviv, enhancing the protection of Israeli towns.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel issued a stern call for Hamas to capitulate, warning that it signifies the 'beginning of the end' for the militant group. Netanyahu's admonition coincides with a wave of surrenders by dozens of Hamas operatives to Israeli forces in recent days.
