Russia Accuses U.S. in Israeli-Palestinian Conflict Which Claimed Thousands Lives Including 5,500 Children

Dmitry Chumakov, Russia's representative at the United Nations, pointed fingers at the United States, saying they played a harmful role in making the Israeli-Palestinian conflict worse. He blamed it on U.S. policies in the Middle East, specifically calling out the U.S. for ignoring the ongoing building of Israeli settlements in Palestinian territories and recognizing Israel's control over the Golan Heights.

Chumakov argued that these actions fueled the current intense conflict and warned that it could spread throughout the entire Middle East. The Israeli bombardment of the Gaza Strip, which went on for six weeks starting on October 7, resulted in a significant number of casualties, with at least 15,000 people, mainly women and children, losing their lives. During this time, the U.S. openly supported Israel, both militarily and politically, drawing criticism from many other countries.

After weeks of conflict, a temporary truce was negotiated between Israel and Hamas, the Palestinian group. Qatar, with support from Egypt and the U.S., helped mediate this agreement, leading to the release of women and children from both sides.
