The Security Council has adopted a resolution regarding the situation in Gaza. The resolution emphasizes the need for all parties involved in the conflict to adhere to their obligations under international law, including international humanitarian law, especially concerning the conduct of hostilities and the protection of civilians. The resolution also reaffirms the responsibility of all parties to provide humanitarian assistance to those affected by the conflict. It demands that they allow, facilitate, and enable the immediate, safe, and unhindered delivery of such aid to the Palestinian civilian population in Gaza.

The resolution further demands that all parties to the conflict allow and facilitate the use of all available routes throughout the Gaza Strip, including border crossings. The resolution requests the Secretary-General appoint a Senior Humanitarian and Reconstruction Coordinator who will be responsible for facilitating and verifying the humanitarian nature of all relief consignments provided to Gaza by states not involved in the conflict.

The Security Council passed the resolution with 13 votes in favor and two abstentions: the United States and the Russian Federation.
