The UN Security Council is going to convene on a session on May 12 to discuss the situation in the zone of Israel-Palestine conflict. The Jerusalem Post wrote that with a reference to diplomatic sources.
"The UN Security Council will gather in private order Wednesday to discuss the most serious outbreak of combat action since 2019 between Israel and the armed formations in Gaza controlled by HAMAS islamists", writes the outlet.
Such sessions are a common thing when it comes to discussions of regional conflicts, but holding two sessions over three days happens on a rare occasion. A consent of all 15 member countries is necessary to hold the consultations behind the closed doors, writes Times of Israel.
As is known, in the evening of May 11, air raid sirens blared in Tel Aviv and all settlements in central districts of Israel. HAMAS militants fired 130 missiles into the Israeli city and its suburbs. Most of the projectiles were downed by the AA defense system, the Iron Dome. Nevertheless, the attack inflicted damage to civilian infrastructure, and the citizens were injured as well. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promised retaliation.
