Hamas welcomes UN resolution for Palestine's membership bid

eral Assembly of a resolution recommending the Security Council to reconsider the membership of Palestine.

The resolution, which was spearheaded by the United Arab Emirates (on behalf of the Arab Group), was adopted on Friday by overwhelming consensus with 143 member states voting in favor, 9 against and 25 abstentions.

Hamas said in a statement on Friday that the UN General Assembly measure enhances the rights and privileges of the State of Palestine at the United Nations.

The Palestinian resistance group also said the overwhelming support for the resolution is an “affirmation of international cooperation.”

“We consider this resolution an acknowledgment of the necessity for our Palestinian people to obtain their legitimate rights and a confirmation of the international support for our people, in the face of the American will supporting the genocide being waged against them,” the statement said.

“We call upon the free countries of the world to intensify their efforts and provide all means of support and backing for our Palestinian people, who long for freedom and their right to self-determination,” Hamas said.

It also called on the UN Security Council now to recognize Palestine.

“We also urge the Security Council to fulfill its responsibilities and make a decision to recognize the State of Palestine as a full member of the United Nations, and to seriously work to stop the massacre committed by the fascist occupation government in the Gaza Strip, which violates all the laws and treaties upon which the United Nations Charter was founded,” the statement added.

Co-sponsored by Turkey along with nearly 80 member states, the resolution expressed "deep regret and concern" over the veto of the US at the UN Security Council on April 18.

At least 34,943 people Palestinians, mostly children and women, have been killed and 78,572 people wounded in the war that Israel began on October 7, 2023 following a retaliatory operation by the Palestinian territory’s resistance movements.

The brutal military onslaught enjoys unreserved military and political support on the part of the Israeli regime’s Western allies, including the United States and France.
