U.S. Abstains from Vote for Cease-Fire in Gaza

The UN has issued its first official demand for a cease-fire in Gaza. However, the U.S. abstained from the vote. This angered Israel and led them to cancel their visit to Washington D.C. This is arguably the strongest clash between the two since the war began.

John Kirby, national security spokesman, and the American Ambassador stated that they abstained instead of vetoed “because it does fairly reflect our view that a cease-fire and the release of hostages come together.” Many countries around the world are looking at the situation in the Middle East, and, whether U.S. citizens agree or not, the U.S. is involved in the issue.

About the Contributor
Kathlyn Tran, Copy Editor
Hi! This is my second year of SPUB and I’m excited to be on staff again. In my first year I’ve gained experience in writing, designing, and photographing. I hope to improve my skills in all of the things I listed previously. I think journalism, especially student journalism, informs people and gives them a voice. I’m excited to see how the yearbook will turnout this year and what I get to write about this year. Other than SPUB and school I enjoy reading, listening to music, and hanging out with friends and family.
