US to file draft to United Nations condemning Hamas

Les Etats-Unis vont déposer un projet auprès des Nations Unies condamnant le Hamas

New York, ALRAY -- The United States is leading a push at the United Nations to issue a resolution condemning Hamas, media sources said.

The US is expected to present the draft to the General Assembly on Friday or possibly Monday on "condemning rocket firings into Israel and demanding that Hamas end the use of violence".

Diplomatic sources said that US diplomats were in talks on the draft text in order to gain their EU counterparts' support.

The resolution, if approved, it would mark the first time the General Assembly voted on a draft condemning Hamas.

European diplomats said there were disagreements on the proposed US text, notably including references to UN resolutions and to the two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, which is supported by the UN.

The draft text repeatedly“ demands that Hamas and other militant actors cease all provocative actions and violent activity.”

On Thursday, the United Nations will hold events to mark the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinians, which commemorates the adoption of the 1947 partition plan intended to establish an Arab state and a Jewish state.
