CAIRO (AFP) -- Arab foreign ministers are to meet in Cairo on Monday to discuss the escalating conflict between Hamas militants in Gaza and Israel which has already killed more than 120 Palestinians, a diplomat said.

Kuwait, which holds the rotating leadership of the Arab League headquartered in the Egyptian capital, had demanded the "urgent" meeting, the diplomat told AFP on Saturday.

There has been no coordinated Arab response to the conflict which erupted on Tuesday when Israel launched waves of air strikes against Gaza.

Egypt, the traditional broker in Israeli-Hamas conflicts, said Friday its efforts to halt violence in the Gaza Strip had met with "stubbornness".

But it is seen as having taken a step back from the latest round of fighting.

Its new government has actively cracked down on Hamas, the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood which the military ousted from power last year.

This is Arabs urgency!!! Meeting on Monday whilst innocent Palestinians are being killed. Shame on Arab nations for NOT taking urgent decisive actions against Israeli barbaric actions. Whilst they continue to live in luxury, innocent people are being killed.

Lol don't bother . as usual they will denounce both sides and ask to create a ceasefire. Then nothing. Saudi might acts as if it cared and send $5 million to look good. 5 million is what is spent in a nightclub by saudi royal. One of these arab ministers wife lost $4 million gambling in one night in London.lol I promise that this summit will bring nothing but a photo shoot and fool the world in to thinking that Palestinians have someone by their Side. LOL
