The United Nations Security Council has called on Hamas to accept Israel’s cease-fire offer on Monday after passing a US resolution that ramps up pressure on the terror group.

The council adopted the measure with 14 votes in favor and none against. Russia abstained from the vote.

The resolution calls for a temporary ceasefire in Gaza to facilitate the release of approximately 120 hostages held by Hamas in exchange for Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.

After Israel raised concerns about the UN resolution last week, American officials agreed to revise it, addressing Israel’s issues, including removing opposition to the establishment of Israeli security buffer zones in Gaza.
