The UN Security Council has convened an emergency meeting for Tuesday, diplomats tell AFP, after an Israeli strike targeting two senior Hamas figures also reportedly killed dozens of Palestinians at a displaced persons camp in the southern Gaza city of Rafah.

The closed-door meeting was requested by Algeria, which is currently a non-permanent member of the council, diplomats say.
