  • Description

    The United Nations Security Council met on Wednesday (5 May) to hear Arab charges against Israel stemming from the current unrest on the occupied West Bank of Jordan.

    It's the second time in six weeks the matter has been discussed in the U.N. The meeting was requested by Egypt, after it claimed that Israel had been responsible for killings, beatings, and tortures on the West Bank.

    Since the last U.N. Middle East debate in march there have been several clashes between arab protestors and Israeli troops. An Arab demonstrator was killed in the West Bank town of Nablus last week.

    At least 30 people were injured in the heart of Jewish Jerusalem on Monday (3 May) when a booby trapped motor-cycle exploded.

    Speakers in the U.N. debate included Jordan's Sherif Sharaf, Syria's Mowaffak Allaf and Palestine Liberation Organisation's delegate Zehdi Terzi. Transcript of parts of their speeches follow.
