US vetoes Security Council resolution to end Israeli military operations in Gaza Russell Adkins at 8:06 PM ET
Following up on an earlier report today in JURIST's Paper Chase, the United States late this afternoon vetoed a draft UN Security Council resolution that would have ordered Israel to immediately end military operations in Gaza and withdraw its forces from the area. Eleven member nations of the council voted in favor of the resolution, with Britain, Germany, and Romania abstaining after their attempts to include last-minute amendments failed.
