UNSC to Meet over Israeli Raid on Flotilla

The United Nations Security Council will convene to discuss the Israeli attacks against an international aid convoy bound for Gaza.

Diplomats at Security Council announced that the meeting will take place on Monday afternoon but gave no further details.

The Israeli navy attacked the Freedom Flotilla aid convoy, which was carrying thousands of tons of supplies to the Gaza Strip.

At least 20 activists were killed and 50 others were injured in the attack, al-Aqsa television said.

The Israeli navy rerouted the ships to the port of Ashdod.

The Flotilla was seeking to break Israel’s crippling blockade of Gaza and deliver basic necessities to the impoverished Palestinians living in the coastal enclave.
