Jerusalem attack and the storming of Jenin before an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council

The Jerusalem attack, in which a number of Israelis were killed and wounded, overshadowed a large part of the emergency session held by the Security Council in New York, at the request of the United Arab Emirates, France and China. To consider the repercussions of the Israeli forces storming the Jenin camp, where 10 Palestinians were killed.

It was not immediately clear whether the members of the Security Council would take a unanimous position on the developments, or if they would be satisfied with expressing concern and calling for restraint and de-escalation.

The United States was quick to denounce what it called a “clear terrorist attack against a synagogue in Jerusalem.” “US officials are in contact with their Israeli counterparts,” said Foreign Ministry spokesman Vedant Patel, adding that he does not expect changes in Secretary Anthony Blinken’s upcoming visit to Israel next week.
