CAPITALS —AlGhad— The United Nations General Assembly is slated to vote on a resolution Wednesday, condemning Israeli occupation authorities for Palestinian deaths in besieged Gaza enclave, over the past few months.

Meanwhile, the United States is putting up fiercely opposition to the motion, demanding that Hamas faces condemnation, exclusively.

US Ambassador Nikki Haley slammed the measure as “fundamentally imbalanced” and proposed an amendment that condemns the Palestinian group.

The 193 nations that make up the world body will vote on an Arab-backed measure that deplores what it calls Israel’s “excessive use of force.”

It calls for the “protection of the Palestinian civilian population” in Gaza.

Kuwait had earlier introduced a similar resolution to the Security Council, but the US vetoed it.
