Israel will never agree to the stationing of international forces on Temple Mount, Jerusalem's new envoy to the United Nations, Danny Danon, said on Friday.

The UN Security Council is scheduled to hold an emergency session beginning at 7 p.m. local Israel time (noon in New York).Representatives of world powers are expected to discuss the intensifying violence of recent weeks between Israel and the Palestinians.

"If the UN is committed to advancing peace, it should support direct negotiations [between Israel and the Palestinian Authority] and it should condemn incitement."
