Kuwait has requested an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council on Tuesday, after dozens of Palestinian protesters were killed in clashes with Israeli forces on the Gaza border, the country's mission to the UN said today.
The meeting is set to begin at 10:00 am (1400 GMT), diplomats said. The violence erupted over the formal opening of the controversial US embassy in Jerusalem. It was the bloodiest day in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict since a 2014 Gaza war.
