  • FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “”The US has Israel’s back”, FRANCE 24’s Douglas Herbert says” – below is their description.

    The violence between #Hamas and Israel is the worst since 2014, when #Israel launched a military operation on the Gaza Strip with the stated aim of ending rocket fire and destroying tunnels used for smuggling. Opening the first session of the UN Security Council on the renewed violence on Sunday, Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called the fighting “utterly appalling”. “It must stop immediately,” he said. But the UN talks, already delayed by Israel’s ally the United States, resulted in little action, with Washington opposing a resolution. “The #US has Israel’s back”, FRANCE 24’s International Affairs editor, Douglas Herbert, says.
