The United Nations have expressed horror and strong condemnation over the killing of hundreds of civilians in a strike on a hospital in Gaza, underscoring that attack on hospitals or civilian infrastructure is against international humanitarian law and called for holding those responsible to account.

Earlier, the U.N. Security Council scheduled a vote on a resolution that initially condemned the terrorist attacks by Hamas on Israel as well as all violence against civilians, while calling for humanitarian pauses to deliver desperately needed aid to millions in Gaza. Negotiations on the draft resolution by Brazil have continued, and the final version to be voted upon is still pending. However, the U.N. Security Council rejected a Russian resolution that condemned violence and terrorism against civilians but made no mention of Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel.
