Arab Envoys Urge Security Council to Discuss Gaza

Arab envoys to the United Nations requested an urgent Security Council session on the situation in Gaza during a meeting Wednesday with the peace and security body's president, AFP reported.

Kuwaiti ambassador Mansour al-Otaibi urged the council to "stop the Israeli aggression and collective punishment of the Palestinian people," amid the IDF’s Operation Protective Edge in Gaza and the continued rocket barrage on Israel.
