Israel censured the United Nations Security Council on Tuesday for not condemning the barrage of projectiles fired by rocket crews in Gaza at Israel during the recent flareup.

In a letter to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon, Israel's ambassador to the UN Ron Prosor said attacks from Gaza put the lives of one million Israelis in peril and kept 200,000 children from going to school.

"There is something wrong with this equation," he was quoted as saying in a press release. "The Security Council has uttered zero words of condemnation of these attacks."

He said the Security Council needed "to speak with one voice against the terrorism that continues to flow from Gaza".
