UN Security Council to discuss 'protecting' Palestinians

The United Nations Security Council will meet and discuss protecting Palestinian citizens next week, Associated Press reports.

Palestinian ambassador Riyad Mansour says that Egypt, Malaysia, Senegal and Venezuela organized the informal meeting. The attendees will hear from an Amnesty International representative, a legal scholar and more.

It is unlikely the the meeting will discuss the Palestinian Authority's practice of torturing and executing Palestinians who sell land to Jews or Hamas executing Palestinians for allegedly collaborating with Israel.
