UN Security Council backs US Israel-Gaza ceasefire plan

The United Nations Security Council has adopted a resolution proposed by the United States for a permanent ceasefire and release of the hostages in Gaza.
The motion was adopted with 14 votes in favor and one abstention by Russia.
In Jerusalem, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken met Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and told the Israeli leader that the US and other world leaders would stand behind the ceasefire proposal.
Mr Blinken is expected to meet Tuesday with Benny Gantz, who resigned Sunday from the Israeli war cabinet after criticizing Prime Minister Netanyahu's strategy in Gaza.  
Meanwhile, more details emerged of the Israeli operation Saturday that rescued four hostages held by Hamas, but left many Palestinians dead.
Gaza's health ministry said at least 274 people were killed in the operation.
