Several representative of Arab and Muslim countries called on the UN Security Council to condemn Israel's actions in the West Bank on Thursday for the second time since the three teens went missing nearly two weeks ago.

Israel's Ambassador Ron Prosor responded that "rather than denouncing this appalling attack, the Arab nations have the audacity to stand before you today and criticize Israel."

He said the Arab nations gave the world mostly oppression and aggression adding that their only innovation was coming to the UN to criticize Israel.

Iran and Saudi Arabia "are fighting a proxy war in Syria, but here at the UN, love is in the air," he said. "Israel is submitted to terrorist activity day in and day out. We are entitled to defend ourselves."
