  • Global News published this video item, entitled “UN General Assembly holds debate on Israel-Gaza conflict | LIVE” – below is their description.

    The United Nations General Assembly will hold a joint debate about the Israel-Gaza conflict amid growing international efforts to de-escalate the situation as rocket fire continues to be exchanged.

    Several foreign ministers are expected to attend and UN Secretary-General António Guterres is expected to address the Assembly after the debate.

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who spoke to U.S. President Joe Biden by telephone on Wednesday, has said Israel wants to achieve “forceful deterrence” to dissuade Gaza’s ruling Hamas from future confrontation.

    Since the fighting began on May 10, Palestinian health officials say 228 people have been killed in aerial bombardments that have worsened Gaza’s already dire humanitarian situation.

    Israeli authorities put the death toll to date at 12 in Israel, where repeated rocket attacks have caused panic and sent people rushing into shelters.
