UN Security Council diplomats will meet at midnight tonight to try to reach consensus on a Presidential Statement that urges Hamas and Israel to engage in a process to reach a “durable and fully respected ceasefire.” UN Security Council statements, unlike resolutions, are not legally binding under international by international law.
