US Ambassador Nikki Haley Urges UN Security Council to Condemn Attacks on Israel by Gaza Terror Groups

The United States issued a call on Tuesday for an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council to discuss the ongoing attacks on Israel by Palestinian terrorist groups in the Gaza Strip.

The meeting is expected to take place at UN headquarters in New York on Wednesday afternoon. Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the UN, said in a statement that America was seeking the meeting because “recent attacks out of Gaza are the largest we have seen since 2014.”

“Mortars fired by Palestinian militants hit civilian infrastructure, including a kindergarten,” Haley declared. “The Security Council should be outraged and respond to this latest bout of violence directed at innocent Israeli civilians, and the Palestinian leadership needs to be held accountable for what they’re allowing to happen in Gaza.”

Three Israeli soldiers were wounded by shrapnel on Tuesday, the IDF said, as dozens of mortar bombs and rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip, triggering warning sirens in southern Israel throughout the day and after dark.
