Israel continues bombing Gaza despite UN ceasefire call
"Reuters reports that despite the resolution, Israel gave no indication that it would heed the UN's call for a cease-fire."
"The Associated Press reports that the UN resolution, which passed the Security Council 14 votes to 0, calls for "an immediate, durable and fully respected cease-fire, leading to the full withdrawal of Israeli forces from Gaza." The United States, Israel's principal ally, abstained from the vote, though US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said the US "fully supports" the resolution." - Israel continues bombing Gaza despite UN ceasefire call
