Historic Resolution: UN Urges Halt on Arms Sale To Israel

More than 33,000 people have been killed, and the number is still rising. The ongoing Gaza genocide is relentless in its sheer and perpetual violence.

The world has spoken out through protests, hunger strikes, and many acts of resistance. Along with that came the UN Rights Council’s demand to halt all arms sales to Israel.


28 out of the council’s 47 member states voted in favor of the resolution, six opposed, and 13 abstained. This marks the first time that the United Nations’ top rights body took a position on Gaza’s bloodiest genocide thus far.

The strongly worded text called on countries to “cease the sale, transfer, and diversion of arms, munitions, and other military equipment to Israel… to prevent further violations of international humanitarian law and violations and abuses of human rights.”

The resolution wasn’t there just to call out for the end of the sales of arms to Israel; it went beyond that. It also went against the forcible transfer of Palestinians within and from Gaza as well as “the use of starvation of civilians as a method of warfare in Gaza.”
