This resolution would reaffirm Israel’s right to defend itself, call on the international community to condemn the ‘unprovoked’ rocket fire against Israel, call on Hamas to stop using civilians as human shields, and oppose any cease-fire agreement that would prevent Israel from removing the threats posed by Hamas rockets and tunnels. The measure was introduced less than a week after the IDF initiated its ground invasion of the Gaza Strip on 7/17/14 as a part of Operation Protective Edge.
