Israel hits Hamas base but Gaza protests fade

Israel hits Hamas base but Gaza protests fade

Speaking at a reception with Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales, Netanyahu said Israel had recorded "similar numbers" to those mentioned by Bardawil. The Palestinians, who seek east Jerusalem as capital of their hoped-for state and vehemently oppose the US move, recalled their ambassadors to four European countries that had supported it.

In a live broadcast of "Ask the President" initiative, as part of his fifth conference with the country's youth in the capital Cairo, Sisi answered questions on many current issues. They are terrified about 40,000 people with arms and with Molotov cocktails breaking down the fence, murdering Israeli children, taking hostages and taking people who they can then exchange for prisoners.

Following the first shots fired at Israeli soldiers from northern Gaza, troops "targeted a military post belonging to the Hamas terror organisation with tank fire", the army said in a statement.

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

Some of them and others, including China, called for an independent probe into the events at the Gaza border. Prayers were followed by parades of Palestinians carrying flag-wrapped bodies high above their heads, chanting on the way to the cemetery.

A senior Hamas official said Wednesday that 50 of the 62 Palestinians reported killed in riots at the Israel-Gaza Strip border on Monday and Tuesday were members of the Islamist terrorist group. That includes eight members of an armed cell of Hamas operatives trying to infiltrate Israel who were killed during Monday's clashes at the border.

Nearly a month of demonstrations was staged to call for the right of Palestinians to return to their ancestral land, and they culminated during the controversial inauguration of a new USA embassy in Jerusalem on Monday.

On Monday, Turkey recalled its ambassadors to the United States and Israel in reaction to the embassy move.

"The media are playing propaganda wing for a terrorist group, which has made clear their intent", Shapiro said.

The loss of even a single innocent life is a tragedy - one that nations should work diligently to avoid.

A relative of Palestinian Ahmed al-Rantisi, killed during a protest at the Israel-Gaza border, is consoled at a hospital in the northern Gaza Strip on May 14, 2018.

Israel isn't a U.N. Security Council member, nor are the Palestinians.

Dershowitz also defended Ivanka Trump, who received criticism for smiling at the embassy opening while conflict occurred in Gaza. Amid worldwide outrage, Ministry of Health in Gaza declared an eight-month-old baby girl dead after tear-gas inhalation. It points to the violent history of Hamas, says there have been shootings and bombing attacks against its forces, and fears a mass border breach.
