Summary Argentina condemned the violence in Gaza and Israels disproportionate use of military force. "On July 12 the Security Council sent a clear message.

It also firmly requested respect for the international humanitarian right and protection to the civilians."

The militant Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS), that currently has the country under siege will take the move as a sign of victory as they continue to overpower the country and its citizens, according to the WFB report.
