Palestinian envoy to the United Nations Riyad Mansour has criticized the UN Security Council for its inaction in the face of Israel’s ongoing invasion of the Gaza Strip. Mansour made the remarks late on Sunday as the Security Council held an emergency meeting to discuss two weeks of the Israeli offensive in Gaza. “This is the third time that we come to the Security Council since this aggression (began) and our people are extremely frustrated and fed up with the Security Council and the international community because they are not doing what they should be doing in order to stop this aggression against our people,” he told reporters. The Palestinian UN envoy stressed that if the Security Council, which is supposed to be responsible for international peace and security, does not stop the Israeli assault, “where should we go in order to seek justice and stopping this aggression against our people?” “We will not give up and come back again and again to the Security Council. We hope that the Security Council rises up to the level of shouldering its responsibility to stop this carnage,” he added. Israel began its airstrikes on the besieged enclave on July 8. Last Thursday, thousands of Israeli soldiers launched a ground invasion into the densely-populated strip as well. At least 505 Palestinians have been killed in Israeli attacks over the past 14 days, while more than 3,000 others were injured. More than 100 people were killed across Gaza on Sunday. Over 70 of them, mostly children, were residents of the Shejaiya district in eastern Gaza.
