Security Council Condemns Killing of Spanish Peacekeeper, But Not Killing of 2 IDF Soldiers – Cara Anna
(dailyalert.org, Feb. 5, 2015)
The UN Security Council on Wednesday condemned “in the strongest terms” last week’s killing of a Spanish peacekeeper in southern Lebanon after an attack by Hizbullah that killed two Israeli soldiers near the Israel-Lebanon border led to an exchange of fire. Israel’s ambassador Ron Prosor pointed out that the council statement didn’t mention the Israeli soldiers or condemn Hizbullah. “The Security Council seems to think that some lives have more value than others,” he said.
A council diplomat said Russia blocked a French-drafted statementon Tuesday that would have condemned the Hizbullah attack on the Israeli soldiers as a violation of the resolution that ended the 2006 war. (AP)
