US Ambassador Nikki Haley told the UN Security Council this morning no member “would act with more restraint than Israel has.”
She was referring to yesterday’s confrontation between Palestinians at the Gaza border and Israeli soldiers. 59 Palestinians were killed. More than 2,000 were wounded. The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights condemned Israel’s use of lethal force.
