UN Security Council adopts resolution for humanitarian pauses in Gaza

Israel says it has laid siege on the Gaza house of Ismail Haniyeh, widely considered as the overall Hamas leader.

Israel says the house was being used as a Hamas meeting place.

Elsewhere, Palestinian media say around 50 people have been killed by an air strike in the central Gaza Strip with Israel dropping leaflets in the south of Gaza, warning civilians in four towns to seek refuge.

The United Nations Security Council adopted a resolution Wednesday calling for urgent and extended humanitarian pauses and corridors in Gaza.

It was the first resolution adopted by the UN Security Council since the outbreak of the latest round of the Palestine-Israel conflict.

The resolution won the support of 12 of the 15 council members.

Britain, Russia and the United States abstained.

Israel launched an onslaught on Gaza after Hamas’ October 7 attacks, in which 1,200 people were killed and some taken hostage.

The Hamas-run health ministry says more than 11,500 people have been killed in Gaza since then.
