The United Nations Security Council is set to meet on Sunday, after Israel requested that the council condemn Iran's attack on Israel and designate the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist organisation.

The meeting will take place at 4 p.m. ET (2000 GMT), according to a schedule released late on Saturday.

Israel's ambassador to the United Nations, Gilad Erdan, requested for the council to hold an emergency meeting, in a letter on Saturday to the council's president.

"The Iranian attack is a serious threat to global peace and security and I expect the Council to use every means to take concrete action against Iran," Erdan wrote in a post on X.

Iran launched a swarm of explosive drones and fired missiles at Israel late on Saturday, in its first-ever direct attack on Israeli territory, risking a major escalation as the United States pledged "ironclad" backing for Israel.
