President says UN vote a victory for justice


RAMALLAH, June 14, 2018 (WAFA) – President Mahmoud Abbas thanked on Thursday the countries that voted in favor of a United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) resolution calling for protection for the Palestinian people in the Israeli-occupied territories and said the vote was a victory for justice.

“This vote is a victory for Palestinian rights, justice and international law,” said the president in a statement.

The UNGA voted on Wednesday 120 in favor with only eight against with 45 countries abstaining in favor of a resolution denouncing Israeli killing of Palestinians in the occupied territories and calling for protection to this vulnerable population, while also denouncing rockets fired from Gaza against southern Israel.
