Algeria, Russia and China are among several nations that have pressed on the call for a humanitarian ceasefire between Hamas and Israel to stop the killing of Palestinians in Gaza. The three nations believe that the situation in Gaza cannot be improved if there is no ceasefire.
Algeria, Russia and China reaffirm ceasefire calls
According to SABC News, Algeria intends to introduce a draft resolution that will spell out the immediate ceasefire calls, supporting the order passed by the International Court of Justice. The court ruled that South Africa was justified in bringing charges of genocide.
Since Israel could not prove that it was not committing genocide, the court ordered that Israel take steps within its power to prevent acts of genocide. While other nations on the council support the call, The United States is allegedly not keen as it believes the conditions are unsuitable for a ceasefire.

"UN is a useless organisation ruled by undemocratic human rights abusers."

"The USA, France and Britain are quiet as if nothing is happening."

"They will never do that. Countries should disassociate themselves with the UNSC because they serve the interests of the West."
