FG condemns killing of 58 unarmed Palestinian demonstrators

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with President of Guatemala Jimmy Morales Cabrera at the King David Hotel in Jerusalem

For Israel, it was enough to cement its narrative.

"The Israeli ambassador was told that our envoy to Israel was called back for consultations, and was informed that it would be appropriate for him to go back to his country for some time", a Turkish Foreign Ministry source said.

While some members said the U.N.'s most powerful body needed to speak as one to try to calm the volatile situation - and the Palestinian envoy implored, "When are you going to act?" - a proposed statement had stalled Monday after the US blocked it. The Israeli military, which has come under global criticism for firing on unarmed protesters, said Hamas militants tried to carry out bombing and shooting attacks under the cover of the protests and released video of protesters ripping away parts of the barbed-wire border fence. Another two Palestinians were killed on Tuesday.

"Palestine is for the Palestinians and is not, as the Jews claim, the land of their ancestors", he said. Gaza has been burning for the past few weeks.

Protesters set tires ablaze, sending thick plumes of black smoke into the air, and hurled firebombs and stones toward Israeli soldiers across the border. He urged Israelis "to understand that the reactions of Palestinians over this issue are legitimate".

The Palestinians, who seek east Jerusalem as capital of their hoped-for state, vehemently oppose the U.S. Embassy's relocation from Tel Aviv, seeing it as a one-sided move that invalidates the U.S.as a Mideast peace broker. Hardly a mention was made of the border violence, only about an hour's drive away.

Ghasemi urged the global community to take "immediate action" and declare Israelis as "war criminals in worldwide courts". 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.

The 42-year-old badly miscued an approach to the 14th, which triggered his first bogey since the same hole a day earlier. Tiger Woods has highlighted qualification for August's WGC-Bridgestone Invitational as one of his main goals for 2018.

In two separate incidents, IDF troops opened fire on gunmen who were trying to shoot them, Hadashot TV news said.

The Israeli military said Hamas tried to carry out bombing and shooting attacks under the cover of the protests and released video of protesters ripping away parts of the barbed-wire border fence.

Palestinian officials say the vast majority of the casualties have been unarmed protesters. "But that's when you have leaders who've decided that they abandon the goal of war and destruction and annihilating the other side", Netanyahu said.

He said that while the protests may not have been peaceful, the use of live ammunition was an inappropriate response.

"Hamas is exclusively responsible for the events transpiring in and out of Gaza, and is accountable for all terrorist activity emanating from Gaza targeting Israeli civilians and Israeli sovereignty", the IDF said. While officials from Israel and the U.S. inaugurated the embassy with smiles on their faces, the Palestinians wept and cried for the deaths of their loved ones. The Palestinians held a one-day general strike and called for three days of mourning for the victims.

The occupied territories have witnessed new tensions ever since US President Donald Trump on December 6, 2017, announced Washington's recognition of Jerusalem al-Quds as Israel's "capital" and said the United States would move the US embassy to the city. Trump's move was considered by some as a tacit acceptance of Israel's de facto control over the city, and Palestinian politicians have said that the embassy move demonstrates the U.S.is not an unbiased broker qualified to help steer Middle East peace talks. Paraguay's embassy is expected to relocate before the end of May.
