Who's to blame for the Gaza violence?

Guatemala moves embassy to Jerusalem

Guatemala moves embassy to Jerusalem

The moves fall short of formal expulsions but come after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Israel committed "genocide" in killing dozens of Palestinians along the Gaza border.

The demonstrations Monday, the latest in a series of protests meant to spotlight anger on the blockade that has inflicted economic misery for the residents of Gaza, coincided with the formal relocation of the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, another source of grievance for Palestinians.

Oxford MP Layla Moran has urged the government to formally recognise the state of Palestine, following widespread violence in Gaza.

"People, you could see, were deeply angry with the current situation", Alon-Lee Green, national director of the Israeli activist group Standing Together, which organized the protests in Tel Aviv, told HuffPost late on Tuesday.

"Those who suggest that the Gaza violence has anything to do with the location of the American embassy are sorely mistaken".

"I am profoundly shocked at the death toll and injuries inflicted on people in Palestine", said Mr Varadkar. "And then in the other half was [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu and Ivanka Trump, literally drinking champagne in the U.S. Embassy opening", Green added.

Pakistan has noted with grave concern that despite calls by the worldwide community to comply with UN General Assembly and Security Council resolutions on the two-state solution, the United States is moving its Embassy to Jerusalem, reported by Radio Pakistan.

The highly charged meeting of the Security Council took place as Palestinians again protested at the Israeli border in Gaza, to mark the Nakba, or catastrophe, the anniversary of when hundreds of thousands of Palestinians fled or were expelled from their homes following the establishment of Israel 70 years ago.

"The location of the embassy has no bearing on the specific boundaries of Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem or the resolution of contested borders". Heyam added: 'The doctor told me she was martyred.' The shootings came amid worldwide uproar over the Israeli military's use of deadly force against unarmed protesters.

US ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley walked out of a Security Council meeting on Tuesday when the Palestinian envoy began to speak, just hours after she praised Israel for acting with "restraint" in handling the protests in Gaza.

Naomi Rosenfeld, executive director of the Atlantic Jewish Council, said every loss of life is tragic, but there's more to the conflict.

Israeli forces killed at least 62 Palestinians protesting along the border fence on Monday, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza.

A handful of USA lawmakers nonetheless condemned the violence, including Sen. "I went to the hospital and I knew she was dead".

As the violence raged on, Hamas has escalated its campaign against Israel, calling on the Palestinian Authority that controls the West Bank to cancel the 1990s Oslo agreements and for Palestinians to stage a third intifada or "uprising". From withdrawing from the Paris climate accord and more recently the Iran nuclear deal to moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, the United States and Europe no longer see eye-to-eye on key issues almost as often as they did under previous administrations.

They included Israel and Honduras.

At a protest on Monday in the USA capital that was organized by the Jewish left-wing activist group If Not Now, about 150 people blocked the street near the Trump International Hotel. Critics fear that moving the U.S. Embassy is an effective endorsement of Israeli claims that the city will be the "undivided" capital of Israel, despite the fact that 300,000 Palestinians, who are deprived of basic civil and human rights, live in East Jerusalem.
