Rights groups criticise the US after it vetoes UN Security plan for an immediate ceasefire.
The United States has again vetoed a UN Security Council draft proposal for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.
Washington’s move has been condemned around the globe.
Jordan reflected the view of many critics, by calling the veto a licence for Israel to carry on with a massacre.
