Resolution 904


Passed unanimously on 18 March 1994 by the UN Security Council, three weeks after the massacre of twenty-nine Palestinians by an Israeli settler in Hebron, this resolution refers to the fourth Geneva Convention and to the Israeli-Palestinian Declaration of Principles of 1993 and vehemently condemns the Hebron massacre; demands that Israel adopt and apply measures, including confiscation of arms, to prevent illegal violent acts by Israeli settlers; demands that measures be adopted to guarantee the security and protection of Palestinian civilians in the entire occupied territory, including, among other recourses, a temporary international or foreign presence; entreats the cosponsors of the peace process, the United States and Russia, to pursue efforts to invigorate this process; and reaffirms its support for the peace process and demands that the Declaration of Principles be applied without delay. The resolution was voted on paragraph by paragraph, allowing the United State to abstain on two of them, one placing Jerusalem among the Occupied Territories, the other referring to "occupied territory" rather than "occupied territories."

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
