Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon told UN Security Council members on Saturday that Hamas bears sole responsibility for the escalation on the Israel-Gaza border on Friday.

In a letter ahead of the Security Council's meeting on Tuesday to discuss the escalation, called on the UN body and international community to "unequivocally condemn Hamas immediately, which perpetrates violence and terror against Israeli communities, endangering their lives, and holds the entire Palestinian population of Gaza hostage."
