What happens if Israel ignores the UN ruling for a ceasefire?
Any news on whether or not they will comply?

What happens if Israel ignores the UN ruling for a ceasefire?
Any news on whether or not they will comply?
If a UNSC resolution is not followed, the council can vote on a follow-up resolution addressing the breach and take punitive action in the form of sanctions or even the authorisation of an international force.

However, US State Department spokesperson Matthew Miller told reporters: It is a non-binding resolution.
This has been contested by other UN officials and Security Council members. Chinas UN ambassador Zhang Jun said that Security Council resolutions are binding.
Deputy UN spokesperson Farhan Haq added that UNSC resolutions are international law, so to that extent they are as binding as international law is.
Israel has repeatedly gotten away with flouting UN resolutions in the past.
In December 2016, during the last days of Barack Obamas presidential term in the US, the UNSC passed a resolution deeming Israels settlements in Palestine illegal and a violation of international law. The resolution passed with 14 votes and the US abstained. Israel ignored this resolution.
More recently, in December 2023, the UN General Assembly voted with an overwhelming majority to call for a humanitarian ceasefire. That was a non-binding resolution and Israel refused to act on it.
Israel is also under the scanner of the International Court of Justice (ICJ), where South Africa has accused it of committing acts of genocide in Gaza.

So in reality, chances are big that USA will veto anything that really can hurt Israel, and they will ignore everything else

Pretty sure they've said they don't give a shit and will continue genociding Palestinians so they can steal their land for more Israeli settlements.

"We heard there were 2 Hamas soldiers in the area and we did one of our "precision" strikes!"
Israel is not going to stop unless their hand is forced this much is clear. I don't really see anyone stepping up to actually pressure them. These toothless resolutions don't mean anything to them.

Hebron (the city in Southern West Bank)

recent *quoted from AJ*

Palestinian girls held at Israeli checkpoint in occupied West Bank
Israeli forces apprehended the two children at a military checkpoint in central Hebron, Wafa news agency reports.
Activist Yasser Abu Markhiya told the Palestinian news agency that Israeli soldiers at a checkpoint, near the Jabal al-Rahma Mosque in Tal Rumeida, held his daughters Zainab and Jana, aged 8 and 10, respectively.
It was unclear from the report when or if the girls had been released.

UN top court orders Israel to open more land crossings for aid into Gaza

The top United Nations court on Thursday ordered Israel to take measures to improve the humanitarian situation in Gaza, including opening more land crossings to allow food, water, fuel and other supplies into the war-ravaged enclave.

The International Court of Justice issued two new so-called provisional measures in a case brought by South Africa accusing Israel of acts of genocide in its military campaign launched after the Oct. 7 attacks by Hamas. Israel denies it is committing genocide. It says its military campaign is self defense and aimed at Hamas, not the Palestinian people.

LOL...This is like Trump saying he wants to help American citizens. Even he doesn't believe it.
Commit the genocide to forcefully take the land so that they can claim "self-defense".

Fuck Bibi.
Eh, whatever.
All these war crimes and screw ups from Netanyahu and it looks like he might be done because Israeli's are tired off the privileges the ultra-Orthodox Jews get.

Israel admits killing 2 Palestinians and then burying them with a bulldozer after shocking video surfaces

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) has admitted killing two Palestinian men and burying their bodies with a bulldozer after Al Jazeera published a video purportedly showing the incident Wednesday.

The men approached its "operational area" in central Gaza in a suspicious manner ** and didnt respond to a warning shot, the IDF said in a statement to CNN. The Israelis killed them and bulldozed their bodies fearing they carried explosives, it said.

If you say I am wrong, then prove that you are right.
At least 5 killed and 10 hurt in Northern Gaza.
15 aid trucks managed to get to Northern Gaza. Thousands of starving people waited and the shit hit the fan.
According to eyewitnesses, Palestinian guards protecting the trucks fired warnings shots in the air, IDF started to fire and trucks drove over people.
3 of the 5 dead had been shot.
IDF claims that they know nothing about the incident

UK government lawyers say Israel is breaking international law, claims top Tory in leaked recording

Chair of foreign affairs select committee Alicia Kearns said at a Tory fundraiser that legal advice would mean the UK has to cease all arms sales to Israel without delay

The British government has received advice from its own lawyers stating that Israel has breached international humanitarian law in Gaza but has failed to make it public, according to a leaked recording obtained by the Observer .

[...]

...any such legal advice would mean the UK had to cease all arms sales to Israel without delay.
Legal experts said that not to do so would risk putting the UK in breach of international law itself, as it would be seen as aiding and abetting war crimes by a country it was exporting arms to.

Iran was the target in Syria

https://www.reuters.com/world/middle-east/building-close-iranian-embassy-hit-syria-iranian-media-report-2024-04-01/

DAMASCUS, April 1 (Reuters) - Iran's consulate in the Syrian capital Damascus was flattened on Monday in what Syrian and Iranian media described as an Israeli air strike, a startling apparent escalation of conflict in the Middle East that would pit Israel against Iran and its allies.
A Lebanese security source, speaking to Reuters, said one of the dead was Mohammad Reza Zahedi, a senior commander in Iran's Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC). Iranian state television said several Iranian diplomats had been killed.
Reuters reporters at the scene in the Mezzeh district of the Syrian capital saw smoke rising from rubble of a building that had been flattened, and emergency vehicles parked outside. An Iranian flag hung from a pole in front of the debris. The Syrian and Iranian foreign ministers were both spotted at the scene.
Israel, which has repeatedly hit Iranian targets during the six-month war in Gaza, declined to comment on the incident, following its usual practice. An Israeli military spokesperson said: "We do not comment on reports in the foreign media."
Iran's Tasnim news agency said five people were killed in the Israeli strike. Syria's SANA state news agency reported an unspecified number of deaths and injuries.
Since the Iranian-backed Palestinian faction Hamas' attack on Israel on Oct. 7, Israel has ramped up airstrikes in Syria against Lebanon's Iranian-backed Hezbollah militia and Iran's Guards, both of which support the government of President Bashar al-Assad.
Protests over weekend

Israel faces largest protests since war began as Netanyahu grapples with growing pressure

Thousands of people took to the streets of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem over the weekend in the largest protests Israel has seen since the start of the war against Hamas a significant challenge to the increasingly embattled leadership of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Demonstrators are angry at Netanyahu and his government for not having secured the release of all the hostages taken captive during the October 7 terror attack. While 105 people were released during a temporary truce last year, another 130 that were kidnapped are either dead or still being held by Hamas and other militant groups.
Banners at the protests called on the Prime Minister to resign and for Israel to hold new elections.
"Youve failed," one poster read. "Impeachment now," read another.
Netanyahu has said that the goals of the current war against Hamas are to bring back the hostages, destroy Hamas and remake Gaza so that no militant group can ever carry out the type of attack that Israel suffered last year, in which about 1,200 people were killed.
Families of hostages among protesters: But the families of the hostages and demonstrators that came out over the weekend believe the Israeli government should be more focused on hostage retrieval than any military or security objectives.
