Arab League calls on UN to act on Israel Gaza attacks

The Arab League on Sunday condemned Israeli air assaults on the Gaza Strip and said the United Nations must take action to end the attacks, in which 15 people have died.

"We issued a statement condemning the Israeli offensive on Gaza ... and Egyptian land," Arab League Secretary-General Nabil Elaraby told reporters in Cairo.

"The United Nations has to take procedures to stop the Israeli offensive on Gaza," he said, without giving details of the measures he was urging the U.N. to take.

Among those killed in the aeriel attacks were the leader of an armed Palestinian faction and five civilians including three children. An assault along Israeli border left eight Israelis dead on Thursday.
