Leaders of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), except Omani Sultan Qaboos Bin Said, arrived in Riyadh Thursday evening to participate in an emergency summit on the Israeli military operations in Gaza.

This summit comes at a time when Qatar was awaiting the approval of a quorum for the convening of an Arab emergency summit in Doha on Friday which Qatar has called for three times, and Kuwait is preparing to host an economic summit on Jan. 19-20.

The GCC leaders are scheduled to form a unified position to stop the Israeli aggression, which to date has resulted in the deaths of more than 1,000 Palestinians, and injured nearly 5,000 people.

The Omani delegation was led by Deputy Prime Minister for Cabinet Affairs and Sultanate Fahd Bin Mahmoud Al Said.

The Saudi Foreign Ministry official said Wednesday that "Saudi Arabia calls upon the GCC leaders to held an emergency meeting in Riyadh in light of the escalation of the Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people and to the circumstances in which the Arab nation lives.
