Palestinians plan Day of Rage to protest US veto of UN resolution

Palestinians are planning their own “Day of Rage” to protest the American veto of a United Nations resolution condemning Israeli settlements, Ma’an News Agency reported a top Fatah official as saying.

“[The United States government] are liars who pretend to support democracy and peace. Far from it,” Fatah official and former Palestinian intelligence chief Tawfik Tirawi told the news agency. Hamas also noted the U.S. bias in favor of Israeli occupation.

The U.S. on Friday voted against a draft resolution against Israeli settlement building in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. Their vote prevented the resolution from being adopted, as the U.S. is one of five permanent members on UN Security Council. The 14 other members of the Security Council voted in favor of the resolution.

Israel, on the other hand, praised the U.S. vote, saying they “deeply appreciate” the veto.
