Palestine's UN ambassador addresses Security Council

Palestine's UN ambassador, Riyad Mansour, offered his condolences to slain protestors and stated Palestinian support for an independent UN investigation.

During the address, Mansour questioned the "regard for Palestinians" and asked the UN Security Council "how many Palestinians must die before action is taken."

"A power that hides kilometres from the inhabitants from Gaza; Targeting them with air strikes, rocket strikes, and other heinous acts. They target unarmed civilians. Would you accept that?...Did these children deserve to die?
