Senate passes resolution condemning Israeli aggression in Palestine

Senate passes resolution condemning Israeli aggression in Palestine

Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas accused Israel of "massacres", while Amnesty International called the violence an "abhorrent violation" of human rights.

Gaza's health ministry said 1,200 people were injured by bullets and another 1,200 by tear gas.

There were violent clashes between Israeli police and angry protesters who raised Palestinian flags outside the new embassy. Black smoke from tyres set alight by demonstrators rose in the air.

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

"Many may get martyred today, so many, but the world will hear our message. Occupation must end", he said.

At an emergency session of the United Nations Security Council Tuesday, United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley denied the violence in Gaza Monday had anything to do with the us opening up its new embassy in Jerusalem.

In December 2017, a United Nations Security Council resolution dealt a symbolic blow to the United States's decision after all members but the US voted for a withdrawal of Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital (The Guardian).

"What a moving day for the people of Israel and the State of Israel", Netanyahu wrote on Twitter.

The Israeli military said it killed three people trying to plant explosives near the security fence in Rafah.

"This has been going on for weeks", he said. No Israeli casualties have been reported. The IDF is concerned that the border riots are part of a Hamas plot to breach the border fence and launch terror attacks against Israel. "Rather, it is a necessary condition for it".

"Jerusalem is an internationally recognised disputed territory, and the fair division of it will be a component of any enduring peace deal".

A female Palestinian demonstrator gestures during a protest against USA embassy move to Jerusalem and ahead of the 70th anniversary of Nakba, at the Israel-Gaza border, east of Gaza City. Those talks have been frozen since 2014.

Today Russia waded into the row, claiming they had warned the U.S. not to move the embassy from Tel Aviv and feared Donald Trump would be a destabilising influence in the Middle East.

However, Monday's protests - and those planned for Tuesday - are the culmination as they mark the anniversary of Israel's creation in 1948 and commemorate the hundreds of thousands of Palestinians who subsequently fled their homes or were displaced in the war that followed. "Jerusalem is a Palestinian territory, and according to worldwide law, Jerusalem should be under global law until both parties agree to divide it into (two) capitals or what", said Jamal Hamed, president of the Association of Palestinian Arab Canadians.
