UNITED NATIONS: The U.N. General Assembly has condemned Israel for excessive use of force against Palestinian civilians.

The General Assembly also asked U.N. chief Antonio Guterres to recommend an “international protection mechanism” for occupied Palestinian territory.

The General Assembly adopted a resolution with 120 votes in favor, eight against and 45 abstentions.

A draft resolution was put forward in the General Assembly by Algeria, Turkey and the Palestinians .

The United States failed in a bid to amend the resolution with a paragraph that would have condemned violence by Hamas.
