The United States will "unquestionably" veto a Kuwaiti-sponsored resolution on protecting Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank when it comes up for a vote in the Security Council Friday.
U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley calls the draft a "grossly one-sided" and "morally bankrupt" approach on stopping the violence between Israelis and Palestinians.
She says while the draft demands Israel stop "excessive and indiscriminate" use of force, it is Hamas that fired 70 rockets into Israeli towns this week.
Haley warns any council member that votes in favor of the draft resolution "will clarify their own lack of fitness to take part in any credible negotiations between the two parties."
As a permanent member of the Security Council, the United States has veto power and can kill a draft.
