The United States fails to approve a UN statement on “Al-Rashid Street Massacre”

The UN Security Council failed to approve a statement holding the Israel responsible for the massacre committed by its forces on “Al-Rashid Street” in Gaza City, against Palestinians who were waiting for aid trucks to arrive.

The Council had held a closed session, at the request of Algeria, regarding the recent developments in the Gaza Strip, following the Al-Rashid Street massacre.

Algeria presented to the Council table a draft presidential statement holding responsibility for the occupation army that opened fire on thousands of civilians who were waiting for aid trucks to arrive.

But the text did not pass because presidential statements can only be approved unanimously, as 14 members supported the text and the United States of America opposed it.

In turn, a diplomatic source said that the United States voted against the text, because it refused to hold the occupation forces responsible for what happened, indicating that discussions in the corridors of the Security Council will continue in an attempt to reach a formula that receives the required consensus.

As for the French Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Nicolas de Rivière, he confirmed that “the humanitarian situation of the civilian population in Gaza is deteriorating day by day,” and added: “We are facing an unprecedented catastrophe.”

He continued that this is not the first time he has stated that the Security Council must “assume all of its responsibilities,” calling again for “an immediate ceasefire, for humanitarian reasons.”

For its part, the German government affirmed that “the circumstances of the killing of residents of Gaza who were seeking humanitarian aid must be investigated,” calling for a “ceasefire, for humanitarian reasons.”

Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock said on the X platform that people “wanted to bring relief supplies for themselves and their families, and they ended up dead.”

She added: “The reports coming from Gaza shocked me,” noting that “the Israeli army must provide a full explanation of the panic and mass shooting that occurred.”

As for France, it called for an “independent investigation” into the circumstances in which the occupation forces opened fire on crowds seeking humanitarian aid.

In an interview with French radio France Inter, French Foreign Minister Stephane Ségornet said that Paris “will ask for clarifications,” noting that if the investigation concludes that the Israeli shooting was a war crime, “it is clear that this becomes a matter of judicial authority.”
