  • Palestinians flee from tear gas fired by Israeli soldiers during the protests in Gaza

"The principles and standards enshrined in the Universal Declaration should guide the search for a durable solution to the question of Palestine", Mohammed said.

'Establish the facts' The special United Nations session comes after six weeks of mass protests and clashes along the Gaza border with Palestinian refugees demanding the right to return to their homes inside what is now Israel.

The 1948 Palestine war refers to the war that occurred in the former Mandatory Palestine during the period between the United Nations vote on the partition plan on November 30, 1947, and the official end of the first Arab-Israeli war on July 20, 1949.

Palestinian officials say at least 60 people have been killed following violent clashes between Palestinian protesters and Israeli security forces. "The cycle of violence in Gaza must end, it serves no one".

The key is "the ability to affect behavior on the ground and to provide genuine protection", she said at a news conference Wednesday at United Nations headquarters.

Palestinian envoy Riyad Mansour said on Tuesday he would begin negotiations to try to get the resolution adopted.

Arab League fails to agree on US envoy recalls

The UN deputy chief called on everyone with a stake in Middle East peace, to exercise utmost restraint to avoid further deaths, especially the lives of children.

However, the Pentagon on Thursday justified the Israeli violence against Palestinians.

The IDF criticized Palestinian protesters for allegedly making the border unsafe as Israel and "countries around the world provide Gazans with humanitarian aid through crossings between Israel and the Gaza Strip".

Russian Federation has also expressed its concerns over the escalation in the Gaza Strip, urging all parties to exercise restraint and reaffirming its adherence to a two-state solution, while European nations, such as Germany and France, have condemned the violence by Israel, with French President Emmanuel Macron reiterating his opposition to the transfer of the U.S. diplomatic premises to Jerusalem.

A draft resolution circulated by Kuwait, the current Arab representative on the council, also demands that Israel "immediately cease its military reprisals, collective punishment and unlawful use of force against civilians, including in the Gaza Strip".
