Palestine requested on Sunday holding an extraordinary session of the Arab League Council at the level of foreign ministers as soon as possible to discuss required political moves to end Israeli aggression, said Arab League Assistant chief Hossam Zaki.
Consultations are going with a number of Arab countries, especially Morocco, the current chair of the Arab League, to set a date for the session quickly, he said.
Under the Statute of the Arab League, at least two countries should support the Palestinian request.
Palestine’s representative to the Arab League Mohannad Aklouk requested an emergency ministerial-level meeting to end Israeli aggression on Gaza Strip and provide protection to the Palestinian people.
Meanwhile, the Moroccan Foreign Ministry said intensive consultations are being held to hold the meeting this week.
