UN General Assembly calls for emergency meet on Gaza




(MENAFN - Jordan News Agency) New York, June 9 (Petra)-- The UN General Assembly will hold an emergency meeting next Wednesday to vote on an Arab-backed resolution on Gaza, the body's president Miroslav Lajcak announced on Friday.

The resolution will condemn Israel, and will be similar to one vetoed by the United States in the Security Council last week, which called for protecting Palestinians from Israeli aggression, according to diplomats.

Resolutions adopted by the General Assembly have no binding value, unlike those passed by the Security Council.
