UN Security Council to meet on Palestinian issue

NEW YORK: The UN Security Council will Thursday meet on the situation in the Middle East, including the Palestinian question, followed by a consultation session.

The Council members are scheduled to listen to a briefing from the UN Secretariat on the latest developments in Gaza and the West Bank, including occupied Jerusalem.

It is noteworthy that the Security Council failed last Tuesday to adopt a resolution that would have demanded an immediate humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza owing to a negative vote of a permanent member of the Council.
