US, Russia engage in heated exchange at UN Security Council session on Gaza

The US and Russian representatives to the UN exchanged heated words Tuesday during a Security Council session on Gaza.

In his remarks at the session, titled 'Protection of civilians in armed conflict,' Russian envoy Vassily Nebenzia accused his 'Western colleagues' of allowing Israel to use hunger as a method of war.

Nebenzia slammed the US for vetoing multiple UN efforts towards a cease-fire in the Gaza conflict, which he said would 'prevent mass starvation' in the Palestinian enclave.
