Russia calls UN Security Council meeting, blasts US ‘escalation’ of war in Middle East

An emergency meeting of the UN Security Council has been held at Russia’s request.

Washington says its actions were in retaliation for Iran-backed strikes on its bases.

Al Jazeera’s Kristen Saloomey reports from the United Nations.
