The Permanent Representative of the State of Palestine to the United Nations, Riyad Mansour, confirmed that the UN Security Council will hold a closed session today / Friday / to discuss the Israeli escalation against the Palestinian people and its latest massacre committed by Israeli forces in Jenin.

Mansour referred to the issuance of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas's instructions on the need to intensify diplomatic action to put the international community before its responsibilities as a result.

The Palestinian diplomat indicated - in an interview with "Voice of Palestine" radio - that under instructions from President Mahmoud Abbas personally, a memorandum was prepared on the Israeli escalation, and contacts were made with the United Arab Emirates, the Arab representative in the Security Council, and the UAE made this request officially on behalf of the Palestinian side.

However, China and France supported the Palestinian memorandum until the moment, as this aggression will be discussed during the session.

Mansour briefed the Japanese envoy on the details of the aggressive and condemned Israeli escalation.

And that he stressed during the meeting the need for the Security Council to shoulder its responsibility in this regard.
