BAGHDAD The latest US veto in the UN Security Council against a Kuwaiti draft resolution calling for international protection of the Palestinians did not deter the Arab countries from turning their demands to the United Nations General Assembly, especially in light of the continuing Israeli massacres in the Gaza Strip, resulted in the martyrdom of at least 129 participants in the march of return and breaking the peaceful siege and wounding thousands.

On the eve of a bloody day in the Gaza Strip, the General Assembly responded to the request of the Arab States and declared that it would hold an emergency meeting within days, which was criticized by Israel.

In a letter to the 193 member states, the President of the General Assembly, Miroslav Lajak, announced that the Assembly would hold an emergency meeting on the latest events in Gaza at 7 pm GMT on Wednesday.

Diplomats said: "It is supposed to take place during this meeting the vote on a draft resolution demanding the protection of the Palestinians and implicitly denounces Israel, similar to the previous draft resolution that was revoked by the United States last week, but with the difference that there is no veto in the General Assembly, , non-binding, other than Security Council resolutions.

Several European countries have tried to convince the Palestinians and Arab states not to call for a vote in the General Assembly after the recent US veto, a European diplomat said.
