The United States has submitted a draft resolution before the United Nations Security Council calling for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza and the release of all hostages kidnapped by Hamas.

It comes after a declaration by the UN this week of imminent famine in parts of Gaza and the Biden administration’s concerns over Israel’s plans to launch a ground invasion in Rafah where more than a million Palestinians are sheltering.

Joining the discussion:

  • Laetitia Courtois is a Permanent Observer to the United Nations and Head of Delegation of the International Committee of the Red Cross.
  • Daniel Seidemann is a lawyer and expert on Jerusalem and the Founder of the Israeli non-governmental organization Terrestrial Jerusalem.
  • Khalil Jahshan is Palestinian American political analyst and Executive Director of the Arab Center Washington DC.
  • Nabeel Khoury is a former U.S. diplomat who worked in the Foreign Service with the U.S. Department of State for 25 years.
