Diplomat: Arab foreign ministers to meet Monday on Gaza

July 12, 2014 4:16 P.M. (Updated: July 12, 2014 11:35 P.M.)
CAIRO (AFP) -- Arab foreign ministers are to meet in Cairo on Monday to discuss the escalating conflict between Hamas militants in Gaza and Israel which has already killed more than 120 Palestinians, a diplomat said.

Kuwait, which holds the rotating leadership of the Arab League headquartered in the Egyptian capital, had demanded the "urgent" meeting, the diplomat told AFP on Saturday.

There has been no coordinated Arab response to the conflict which erupted on Tuesday when Israel launched waves of air strikes against Gaza.

Egypt, the traditional broker in Israeli-Hamas conflicts, said Friday its efforts to halt violence in the Gaza Strip had met with "stubbornness".

But it is seen as having taken a step back from the latest round of fighting.

Its new government has actively cracked down on Hamas, the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood which the military ousted from power last year.
