The United Nations Security Council held emergency consultations Monday over the growing tensions between Israel and Palestinians and was considering proposed statement calling on Israel to cease evictions, as Israeli attacks resulted in the death of 20 Palestinians on Monday including 9 children.

Ireland's U.N. ambassador, Geraldine Byrne Nason, who joined in calling for the emergency meeting, said that "the Security Council should urgently speak out, and we hope that it will be able to do so today."
