The UN Security Council will hold emergency consultations on the situation in Gaza after Israeli soldiers reportedly killed 15 Palestinian protesters along the border fence.

"At the request of #Kuwait, the @UN Security Council will meet at 6:30 p.m. (EST) in informal consultations ... to discuss the latest developments in #Gaza," the Kuwaiti mission to the United Nations tweeted on Friday, which is a UN holiday.

Delegations of two other Security Council members -- France and the Netherlands -- also tweeted the news.

The official UN alert to journalists says it will be a closed-door meeting.
