Security Council experts met Wednesday to discuss a draft UN statement on the Middle East which the United States said was unbalanced because it blamed Israel for recent incursions into Palestinian territory without mentioning Palestinian attacks. The Indonesian draft would have the UN Security Council express "great concern over the recent Israeli military incursions in the occupied Palestinian territories which caused deplorable civilian casualties and injuries" and "harmful humanitarian consequences."
