UN to Vote on U.S. Measure Condemning Hamas

The UN is scheduled to vote on a U.S. resolution condemning the Palestinian Hamas terror movement.

Reports out of Israel say the vote will come Thursday after all 28 EU Nations said they would back the U.S. draft.

The resolution condemns the Islamic terrorist group for firing rockets into Israel and is demanding an end to the ongoing violence.

The measure was previously championed by outgoing UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, and would mark the first time the UN has taken a stance against Hamas.

The U.S. had initially hoped for a Monday vote, but the Palestinians had pushed for a delay.
