The United States is not willing to pressure Israel to stop its military operations but is rather covering up their actions in Gaza, said Russian Deputy Ambassador to the UN Dmitry Polyanskiy.

"The main problem is that the United States, which is the only country that can press Israel for anything, is not willing to do so," Polyanskiy said. "It's quite clear that they are covering up Israel. We are seeing that due to this, Washington's position has become more vulnerable and uncomfortable.

Polyanskiy cited pro-Palestinian student protests sweeping through the West.

"But they the US are trying to win the time for Israel to proceed with their operations," the diplomat said.
