Ma’an News Agency  -  20 August 2011

RAMALLAH (Ma’an) — President Mahmoud Abbas has requested a session of the UN Security Council to address Israel’s deadly operations in the Gaza Strip, a PLO official said Saturday.

Saeb Erekat said Abbas’ request for an emergency meeting came as Palestinian officials in Ramallah attempted to calm a “dangerous escalation against the Gaza Strip and to stop the killing of civilians there.”

Abbas authorized Palestinian envoy to the UN Riyad Mansour to call the meeting, according to a report from the official Palestinian Authority news agency Wafa late Friday.
