Notably, the United States abstained from voting, sparking global debate, while Russia, China, and the UK supported the resolution.

Central to its demands is the release of all hostages, highlighting the humanitarian urgency amidst ongoing conflict. UN Secretary-General António Guterres stresses the resolution's crucial importance, warning of dire consequences if not enacted swiftly.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's opposition underscores tensions surrounding the resolution, with the Biden administration's evolving stance signaling a diplomatic shift amid international pressure.
