(MENAFN) On Thursday, Arab countries' foreign ministers will be holding an emergency meeting over the deadly attacks in Gaza, according to Al Masry Al Youm newspaper.
The emergency consultation of the Arab League is being convened at the request of Saudi Arabia, which chaired the latest summit of the organization, sources told the newspaper.
The 46-day peaceful protests began on March 30, which coincided with the 42nd anniversary of the Land Day, which marks the day Israeli forces killed six Palestinians during protests against land confiscation in 1976. It continued until May 15, which marks the 70th anniversary of the Nakba, in which over 750,000 Palestinians were forcibly displaced from their homes in 1948.
Since the start of the rallies, over 110 Palestinians have been killed and at least 11,000 injured along the fence in Gaza, with no reports of Israeli casualties, according to reports.
Last week, the Israeli government said the ongoing border protests constituted a "state of war" in which international humanitarian law did not apply.
