UN Security Council to hold urgent meeting on Gaza

13 Israeli soldiers killed in battle Sunday

The U.N. Security Council is holding an emergency meeting Sunday night on the situation in Gaza.

Several diplomats are tweeting that the meeting is at 9:30 p.m. local time.

French Ambassador Gerard Araud tweets that the meeting is being held at the request of council member Jordan.

The U.N. spokesman's office says it cannot confirm the meeting.

The first major ground battle in two weeks of Israel-Hamas fighting on Sunday has killed 65 Palestinians and 18 Israeli soldiers and forced thousands of terrified Palestinian civilians to flee their neighbourhood
