Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday voiced Israel’s “dissatisfaction” to President Vladimir Putin over Russia’s vote in favor of a UN Security Council resolution calling for a Gaza ceasefire.

“Any country that had been struck with a criminal terrorist assault such as Israel experienced would have reacted with no less force than Israel is using,” he told Putin.

The United States vetoed Friday’s Security Council resolution calling for a ceasefire in the Gaza war between Israel and Palestinian militant group Hamas.

Netanyahu also voiced “robust disapproval” of Russia’s “dangerous” cooperation with Iran, the Israeli statement said.

On October 7, Palestinian militant group Hamas carried out a shock attack on southern Israel, killing 1,200 people, mostly civilians, according to Israeli officials.

In Israel’s retaliatory air, ground and sea assault targeting Hamas, at least 17,700 people, mostly women and children, have been killed in the Gaza Strip, according to the health ministry in the Hamas-run territory.
