Israel vs Lebanon

From The Star

In New York, the Security Council passed a resolution urging an "immediate, durable and fully respected ceasefire", and for Israel to withdraw from Gaza after its two-week air-and-ground offensive. The United States abstained.

There was no immediate reaction from Israeli officials to the vote, but Israel opposed the idea of a binding resolution. Israel's military commanders appeared keen to pursue the ground offensive to try to secure more gains.

For its part, Gaza's Hamas rulers did not recognise the resolution as it had not been consulted on it, said a spokesman for the Islamist group.

What does above means? Are they saying both Israel and Lebanon do not want to cease fire and want to continue the war?
