Should veto power of permanent members of the UNSC be revoked? | Inside Story

Despite more than 9 weeks of Israeli massacres in Gaza, the UN Security Council has been unable to agree on a ceasefire.
The Secretary General invoked a rarely used power to urge the Security Council to act.

So, is it time for the veto power to be removed?
