Israel Targets Hamas Position After Gaza Gunfire

Israel Targets Hamas Position After Gaza Gunfire

"At a minimum, that would require urging the Israelis to stop using lethal force against unarmed protesters". Many others were injured by gunfire.

Pushing back against foreign censure of its army's actions, Israel has - with Washington's backing - accused Hamas of using civilians as cover for attacks across the frontier fence and to distract from Gaza's internal problems.

In December previous year, the African Union retaliated their support for Palestine in its quest for an independent and sovereign State with East Jerusalem as its capital.

"We started to line up altogether and then walk forward steps together".

A senior member of Gaza's Hamas rulers have said that all but a dozen of the 62 Palestinians killed by Israeli fire during Gaza border protests this week were members of the Islamist group.

Gaza was calmer on Tuesday, which for Palestinians marks what they refer to as "Nakba Day" - marking what they call the "catastrophe" of their expulsion when Israel was created 70 years ago. Gunshots were fired in the air.

Israeli forces killed at least 62 Palestinians during protests near the Gaza fence on the eve of the 70th anniversary of the Nakba Day (the Day of Catastrophe), which coincided this year with the relocation of the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to the occupied city of Jerusalem al-Quds.

The Palestinian health ministry said more than 2,700 people had suffered injuries and that numerous dead had not yet been identified.

The UK, France, and Germany have responded more forcefully to the violence than the USA and have expressed concern about Israel's response to the demonstrations against the new U.S. embassy in Jerusalem.




The UN's top human rights body will hold a special session to discuss "the deteriorating situation in the occupied Palestinian territories" after the killing of 60 Palestinians by Israeli troops at mass border protests on Monday.

Tánaiste Simon Coveney also called on Israel to show restraint in the hours and days ahead.

"If he says that, then the USA is back in business", he said. "This is a blasphemous statement", Lavrov said. USA ambassador to Israel David Friedman also attended Wednesday's ceremony.

The Israel Defense Forces released a video Wednesday of a Palestinian man, described as a Hamas terrorist, explaining how the terrorist organization that controls Gaza incites residents to engage in violent protest against Israel.

At an emergency session of the U.N. Security Council on Tuesday U.S. Ambassador to the U.N.

Previously Guatemala's embassy was in Herzliya, just north of Tel Aviv, like that of Paraguay, so far the only other mission with immediate plans to move to Jerusalem.

It was the bloodiest single day for Palestinians since the Gaza conflict in 2014.

"Rather, the violence comes from those who reject the existence of the state of Israel in any location". "It does not undermine the prospects for peace in any way".

The admission came one day after Björn Stritzel, a reporter for the German tabloid BILD, tweeted so-called "martyrdom pictures" of Hamas militants killed in the violence.
