Today, the UN Security Council is set to vote on a resolution urging an immediate ceasefire in the Gaza Strip, as reported by Arab media outlets. The resolution, put forth by ten elected members of the Security Council, aims to address the escalating violence in the region.

Israeli airstrikes in the Gaza Strip have resulted in numerous Palestinian casualties in the past 24 hours. Tragically, eighteen Palestinians lost their lives in the bombing of a house in Deir al-Balah, while over 27, including women and children, were killed in airstrikes targeting five houses in Rafah. Additionally, there have been reports of Palestinian fatalities near al-Shifa hospital due to Israeli airstrikes.

Adding to the humanitarian crisis, Israel has reportedly halted the entry of food containers into the northern Gaza Strip, exacerbating food shortages. Arab media indicates that around 70 percent of residents in northern Gaza are facing severe food shortages as a result.

Meanwhile, in Oman, protests erupted outside the Israeli embassy in solidarity with Palestinians. Notably, women participated prominently in these demonstrations. Protesters waved Palestinian flags and chanted anti-Israel slogans, culminating in clashes with police, who resorted to tear gas to disperse the crowds. In Jordan, police intervened to prevent women from reaching the Israeli embassy, leading to the arrest of several individuals, according to Arab media reports.

Elsewhere, similar pro-Palestinian rallies were held in Tehran, the capital of Iran, underscoring the global outcry against the ongoing violence in the Gaza Strip.
