UN Security Council set to discuss Gaza after a deadly day

Poland's ambassador, Joanna Wronecka, called for the gesture of remembrance in her role as current council president.
Kuwait called for the session after more than 50 Palestinians were killed and over 1,200 wounded by Israeli gunfire amid mass protests Monday. Israel said its troops were defending its border and accused Hamas militants of trying to attack under the cover of the protest.
It also would have demanded that all countries comply with a decades-old Security Council resolution that called on them not to have embassies in contested Jerusalem.
