Gaza residents to bury dead from Israel border protest

Gaza residents to bury dead from Israel border protest

As criticism of this predictable bloodbath pours in from leaders around the world, the Trump administration is blaming Hamas alone, giving Israel a green light to continue killing and maiming.

On occasion of the 70th anniversary of the 1948 Palestinian exodus, the Palestinian National Liberation Movement, Fatah, on Tuesday said people of Palestine are more determined to struggle for an independent Palestine with Jerusalem as its capital.

The Palestinian Authority also called a general strike in the West Bank and East Jerusalem in protest at Gaza's bloodiest day in years, which saw 58 Palestinians killed - majority shot dead by Israeli fire - and more than 2,700 people injured, according to Gaza's health ministry.

It was for the approximately 60 Palestinians killed by Israeli troops in protests along the Gaza-Israel border.

"No one would. No country in this chamber would act with more restraint than Israel has", she added.

Michael Lynk, the UN's special rapporteur on human rights in the Occupied Palestinian Territory condemned Israel's "blatant excessive use of force", describing it as being akin to "an eye for an eyelash".

Boyd Barrett also called for the immediate expulsion of the Israeli ambassador to Ireland, a call that was taken up by other speakers at the event and the crowd.

In a joint statement after the meeting, they said that Hamas needed to avoid "provocations" and violence, but that Israel's military must "exercise maximum restraint" in using lethal force.

Merkel also expressed concern at the violence in Gaza, but said "Germany understands Israel's security needs".

U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres also proposed an investigation, after a deadly protest in Gaza in March.

In central London , where we met the next afternoon, Hodgson, 70, explained the formula he used back in the dark days of autumn. "I have no plans on leaving", said Zaha.

On this point, the five Security Council members in the European Union disagreed, reiterating their positions that Jerusalem is a "final status" issue to be finalized only after direct negotiations between Palestinian and Israelis in talks to create a "two-state solution".

Protests began after the U.S. embassy was officially opened in Jerusalem on Monday (local time).

The carnage unfolded several dozen kilometres away from where the Trump administration was following through on its decision to move the USA embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv.

United Nations human rights officials said Tuesday that Israel's use of lethal force against Palestinian demonstrators was unjustified and called for an independent investigation into what could be grave breaches of worldwide law. Only Togo backed the USA during the United Nations vote but were not on the list of envoys at the opening of the embassy.

Kuwait's UN Ambassador, Mansour Al-Otaibi, appeared at the Security Council press area with 14 other ambassadors from Arab countries, including Riyad Mansour of Palestine, and said he would draft a resolution in the Security Council to provide worldwide protection for the Palestinians, which Israel, as the occupying power, had failed to do. He didn't immediately give details of his proposal. Jerusalem", he said. "We meet with the prime minister in Jerusalem.

"No country in this chamber would act with more restraint than Israel has", the USA ambassador added.

Theresa May has called for an inquiry into the "tragic" deaths in Gaza as Israel faced growing condemnation over its killing of dozens of Palestinians.

Protesters set tires ablaze, sending thick plumes of black smoke into the air, and hurled firebombs and stones toward Israeli soldiers across the border.

"Given the indiscriminate and grave manner of the latest Israeli attack‚ the South African government has taken a decision to recall Ambassador Sisa Ngombane with immediate effect until further notice‚" the Dirco statement said.

"These war crimes need to be dealt with by the Security Council and the worldwide appropriate legal system to bring those criminals to justice, because the Palestinian people should not be the exception to the rule", he further noted.
