Arab League chief calls for worldwide probe into Israel 'crimes'

Arab League fails to agree on US envoy recalls

He also stressed the need to abide by UN Security Council Resolution No. 478 of 1980, which clearly calls on countries that have established diplomatic missions in Jerusalem to withdraw these missions from the Holy City, while stressing the importance of complying with all worldwide resolutions that call for not to establish or transfer embassies and diplomatic missions to Jerusalem, or recognition of the city as the capital of Israel.

The Arab League foreign ministers tasked on Thursday the organization's General Secretariat with preparing a comprehensive plan to confront the USA decision or the decision of any other country to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

"We call for a credible global investigation into the crimes committed by the occupation", Arab League chief Ahmed Abul Gheit said at an extraordinary meeting of the bloc to discuss the violence, called at the request of Saudi Arabia.

"The Arab summit last month [in Saudi Arabia] declared its rejection, in accordance with worldwide law, of any move that attempts to legitimise any decision that changes the status of Jerusalem", Shoukry said.

The Arab League's extraordinary in Cairo over the killing of over 60 Palestinians by Israeli forces along Gaza border hit the front page headlines in Palestinian Arabic dailies on Friday. Others also condemned the USA, but none of the members said they would recall their ambassadors.

After a week of deadly clashes along the Gaza border, Hamas is seeking to revive the violence with a massive march today.

"I urge the Israelis to understand that the reactions of Palestinians over this issue are legitimate and that (they) are dealt with in a way that takes great care for the lives of Palestinians". Palestinian security sources confirmed the target was a Hamas base, saying there were no reports of injuries.

The IEA acknowledged attention of market participants has shifted away from inventories to price volatility. Opec and other producers such as Russian Federation have restrained supplies in support of higher prices.

Avi Benlolo - CEO of the Friends of the Simon Wiesenthal Center - said that "Canada should steadfastly condemn Hamas for inciting violence and for attempting to enter a sovereign nation to carry out terrorism..."

The increased tension comes as Israel's Independence Day approaches, with celebrations set to coincide with a ceremony marking the relocation of the US Embassy, scheduled for Monday, May 14.

The "cycle of violence" in Gaza serves no one and it must end, the UN Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed said on Thursday at the UN Forum on the Question of Palestine.

Calls for an independent probe into the deaths have come from many sides, including Britain, Germany, Canada and Switzerland.

"This shameful draft resolution is a proposal to support Hamas' war crimes against Israel and the residents of Gaza who are being sent to die for the sake of preserving Hamas' rule", he said in a statement.

Palestinians and rights groups say protesters are being shot despite posing no threat to Israeli soldiers on the other side of the heavily guarded fence.
