Netanyahu thanks Narendra Modi after India backs Israel in United Nations vote

IDF forces in Nablus early Tuesday

It is the first time that India has voted on a resolution at the United Nations that is being perceived as pro-Israel.

Israel introduced at a meeting of the ECOSOC the draft decision "L.15" on June 6 titled "Application of the non-governmental organisation Palestinian Association for Human Rights - Witness for consultative status with the Economic and Social Council" that sought to return to the NGO Committee Witness' application for consultative status, a very rare occurrence.

India's position on the Middle East Peace Process has been consistent and clear.

The Israeli Policy Forum, a group that advocates for a two-state solution, said while Friedman's annexation remarks "are not surprising, given his long publicized pro-settlement and anti-two-state outlook, they are disturbing nonetheless".

India had then explained to the Palestinian Authority the reasons for its stand and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas had "accepted and understood" why New Delhi abstained then.

Besides India, among the countries that voted in favor of Israel are Brazil, Canada, Colombia, France, Germany, Ireland, Japan, Korea, Ukraine, United Kingdom, and the United States. Netanyahu was scheduled to take part in Wednesday's inauguration ceremony together with US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman.

On June 13, 2018, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution, sponsored by Turkey and Algeria, condemning the Israeli regime for the death of Palestinian civilians in Gaza.

Kadosh mentioned that the organisation has links with Hizbullah and Palestinian Islamic Jihad that was designated as terrorist organisation in 1997. Israel and Palestinian militants in Gaza, run by Islamist movement Hamas, have fought three wars since 2008.

"Shahed", according to Israeli foreign ministry sources, is a Palestinian organization based in Lebanon that claims to deal with human rights and humanitarian issues, "but in practice is an organization that Israel has declared a terrorist organization and in fact operates as an arm of the Hamas terror organization in Lebanon".
