James Elder says the hopes of people in Gaza have been dashed over the past two nights as Israel continues its attacks despite a UN Security Council resolution demanding an immediate ceasefire.

“There was so much hope in Gaza after Monday’s call for a ceasefire. That hope, night after night, is being drowned out by bombs,” he said in a video posted on Instagram.

Pointing his camera towards a wounded boy in a hospital bed, Elder said, “This is a seven-year-old Mohammed and this is the face and result of the ceasefire in Gaza.”

The UN resolution passed on Monday called for an immediate truce for the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, which ends in two weeks, and demands the release of all captives seized in the Hamas-led attack on southern Israel in October.
