The Arab officials condemned the brutality of Israeli forces against the Palestinians as they have also discussed possible means of bringing an end to the sufferings of the Palestinian people. Ahmed Ben Helli, deputy Arab League Secretary General said that the Arab league will ask the UN general assembly to hold an emergency meeting to resolve this ongoing crisis.
