UNITED NATIONS — The UN General Assembly has adopted by a strong majority of 120 countries an Arab-backed resolution condemning Israel for Palestinian deaths in Gaza and rejected a US bid to put the blame on Hamas.

The resolution was adopted yesterday by a vote of 120 to 8 with 45 abstentions in the 193-nation assembly.

A bid by the United States to present an amendment condemning Hamas failed to garner the two-third majority needed for adoption. (AFP)
