On this holy weekend for Christians and Jews, The United Nation Security Council has scheduled an emergency meeting today to discuss the deterioration in Yemen.
The UN Security Council take up a Russian proposal for humanitarian pauses in the Saudi-led air campaign in Yemen, diplomats said.
Russia called for the meeting amid growing alarm over the rising civilian death toll from the fighting in Yemen. This UNSC session on Yemen's crisis takes place amid Saudi-led airstrikes.
Russia says it is necessary for the international community to discuss the establishment of regular and mandatory “humanitarian pauses” in the ongoing coalition air strikes on Yemen.
This extraordinary meeting has been scheduled for Saturday, at 3pm GMT at the UN headquarters in NYC.
