UN Security Council to meet Sunday on Iran attack after Israel request


The United Nations Security Council is set to meet on Sunday after Israel requested the council condemn Iran’s attack on Israel and designate the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps a terrorist organization.

The meeting will take place at 4 p.m. ET (2000 GMT), according to a schedule released late on Saturday.

Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations, Gilad Erdan, requested the council hold an emergency meeting in a letter on Saturday to the council’s president.

“The Iranian attack is a serious threat to global peace and security and I expect the Council to use every means to take concrete action against Iran,” Erdan wrote in a post on X.

Iran launched a swarm of explosive drones and fired missiles at Israel late on Saturday in its first-ever direct attack on Israeli territory, risking a major escalation as the United States pledged “ironclad” backing for Israel.

    The UN Building should have long ago, relocated to a country with no ties to the Middle East, or United States,
    UK, France, Germany… Relocate to a NEUTRAL COUNTRY.
    The influence of these countries have smothered the real reason the UN existed, especially the host country.
    No country follows the rulings, decisions when voting on critical issues.
    They just simply FLOUT all rulings against them.
    VETO vote should not be by ONE member country only but by half majority or two thirds.
