The United Nations Security Council has announced its first resolution to end the eight-month war between Israel and Hamas by approving a ceasefire in Gaza with a majority vote.

The body endorsed President Biden’s proposal for a Gaza ceasefire on Monday, June 10th.

President Biden proposed the draft resolution for a Gaza ceasefire and the release of hostages, urging the parties involved to “fully implement this agreement without delay and without conditions.”

The resolution passed with 14 in favor out of 15 Security Council members, with one abstention from Russia.

Linda Thomas-Greenfield, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, emphasized, “Today, we voted for peace. Today, the Council sent a clear message to Hamas: Accept the ceasefire on the table. Israel has already agreed to this deal, and if Hamas does the same, the war could end today.”

Reuters also reports that Hamas has welcomed this proposal and expressed readiness to cooperate with mediators in any way.

Details of the implementation of this resolution have not been provided yet, as Hamas leaders emphasize a permanent ceasefire, and Israel insists on the destruction of Hamas.

According to reports, since the start of Israeli attacks on Gaza, 37,000 Palestinians have been killed, and millions more have been displaced.
