Israel on Monday night asked the United Nations Security Council to condemn the barrage of over 150 Palestinian rockets launched from the Gaza Strip into southern Israel since Saturday.
“The serious danger of an even greater escalation hangs over our very volatile region. Many Israeli civilians and soldiers have been injured. Damage to property has been significant. One million people in Southern Israel remain under grave threat,” Israeli Ambassador to the UN in New York Ron Prosor wrote in a letter.
He addressed it to the Security Council and to the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
