Qatar has asked for an urgent meeting of Arab foreign ministers to discuss ways to end the Israeli offensive in the Gaza Strip, the head of the Arab League said Sunday. Amr Moussa said he has started consultation with the Arab League's 22 member-states to set a date for the meeting. He said the meeting could be held in Kuwait, which is hosting an Arab economic summit next week.

The Palestinians will be beaten up by then." he told Al-Jazeera news network.
