(Worthy News) - The UN General Assembly will convene for an emergency session on Wednesday regarding Gaza, where a version of a resolution vetoed last week by the US in the Security Council condemning Israel will receive a wider vote.
The measure is being pushed by Arab powers, according to wire services, and will accuse the Jewish state of mishandling a recent spout of protests along its border and calling for protection for the Palestinian people.
“We will work next week to get the maximum number of votes,” a diplomat from a country that supported the measure told Agence France Presse on Friday. [ Source: Jerusalem Post (Read More...) ]
