The UN Security Council has adopted a resolution calling for urgent, extended pauses in the Gaza Strip.
The binding text calls for humanitarian pauses in fighting and to allow aid access, but didn’t use the term ceasefire. It also called on Hamas and Israel to protect civilians, “especially children.” It’s the first time the council has agreed on a resolution since the conflict began.
Meanwhile, the Israeli army has released a video which it says provides evidence that Hamas was using the Al-Shifa hospital in Gaza as a command center complex. Hamas denies the claims, and the images have not been independently verified.
For more, we talk to Lt. Col. Peter Lerner. He is an Israeli military spokesperson in Tel Aviv.
