Israel rejected a United Nations resolution deploring Palestinian deaths in a recent artillery barrage on the Gaza Strip. Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said Sunday that it is Palestinian terrorists, not Israel, that deserve the General Assembly’s censure. He was responding to an Arab-drafted resolution condemning Israel’s Nov. 8 shelling of Beit Hanoun, which killed 19 civilians, and calling for a probe and an immediate Israeli troop withdrawal from the Gaza Strip.
