More than 37 thousand Palestinians have died so far in Israel's attack on Gaza.

Amid the 8-month-long war between Israel and Hamas, the ceasefire proposal was passed in the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) on Monday. This proposal was presented by the US. In the voting held on Monday, 14 out of 15 countries voted in its favour, while Russia, which has veto power, distanced itself from the proposal.

In the ceasefire proposal presented by the US for the first time, it has been said that the war will be ended in 3 phases. In the first phase, there will be a ceasefire of 6 weeks. During this, there is talk of releasing some Israeli hostages held by Hamas and Palestinians imprisoned in Israeli jails.

After this, in the second phase, the war will be completely stopped and the remaining hostages will be released. The last phase mentions the resettlement of the Gaza Strip. US President Joe Biden announced this proposal last month. According to the US, Israel has already accepted this proposal.

14 countries agreed on the proposal for ceasefire in Gaza, while Russia stayed away from voting.

Netanyahu said – the war will not stop until Hamas is destroyed
However, some Israeli officials say that they will continue the war until Hamas is eliminated from Gaza. Israeli PM Netanyahu also said that Biden has made public only a part of the proposal. Israel will talk about a permanent ceasefire only when Hamas is completely eliminated.

On the other hand, Hamas has welcomed this resolution passed in the UNSC. After the voting, Hamas said that it is ready to discuss it with mediators. Apart from this, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken is on a visit to Israel for ceasefire in Gaza.

He also met PM Netanyahu on Monday. Blinken stressed that the ceasefire would allow all Israeli hostages to return home without any difficulty. Along with this, humanitarian aid can also be easily delivered to Gaza.

The ceasefire proposal was passed for the first time in March
Earlier in March, a ceasefire resolution was passed in the UNSC on the basis of humanitarian crisis. The resolution demanded the immediate release of all hostages without any conditions. For this proposal too, 14 out of 15 members voted in favour, while America kept away from it.

This was the first time that the US did not vote on the ceasefire proposal. Before this, it had vetoed these proposals in the UNSC thrice. Israel had expressed its displeasure over the US abstaining from voting. Netanyahu had then cancelled the visit of Defense Minister Yoav Galant who was going to Washington.

Will the war stop after the resolution is passed in the UNSC?
According to the New York Times, UNSC resolutions are considered international law. It is necessary for member countries to follow them. However, Israel is not a permanent or temporary member of the UNSC. As such, it is not bound to accept this resolution.

Even if a resolution is passed in the Security Council, there is no way to implement it here. Yes, it is true that many sanctions can be imposed on Israel with the consent of member countries.

The first proposal to stop the Israel-Hamas war was presented by Malta in November 2023. The second proposal was presented by the UAE in December 2023 and the third proposal was presented by the North African country Algeria in February 2024. The US rejected it all three times.

Hamas terrorists took 234 people hostage
In the attacks on Israel on 7 October 2023, Hamas took about 234 people hostage and took them to Gaza. So far, there has been a ceasefire between the two sides only once from 24-30 November. Then Hamas and the Israeli army stopped attacks for 7 days. During this time, about 107 hostages were released.
