UN Security Council debates Israel’s Gaza killings- Aljazeera

The UN Security Council is holding an emergency session in New York to discuss violence along the border between Israel and the Gaza Strip.

The meeting began with a minute of silence for the more than 60 people who were killed in Monday’s protests.

Speaking before the meeting, Danny Danon, Israeli ambassador to the UN, accused Hamas of attempting to breach the border fence by organising violent protests along the Israel-Gaza border, and defended Israel’s right to security.

He also accused Hamas of committing ‘war crimes’ against Palestinian and Israeli civilians.
