Turkey and Israel expel envoys over Gaza violence

Turkey and Israel expel envoys over Gaza violence

Most of the 60 Gazans martyred Monday were shot by Israeli snipers, Gaza's health ministry said.

Rupert Colville, spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, decried Israel's actions.

Michel described the Israeli response to the protests "unacceptable violence", saying "there is a clear lack of proportionality and we are asking for an worldwide investigation".

Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump were among the guests headlining the Jerusalem embassy opening, a move condemned by Palestinians and widely criticized by world leaders who consider the relocation a provocation. Israeli and United States officials gathered in the city amidst deadly clashes in the Gaza Strip.

What happened at the Gaza border?

"This has been going on for weeks", he said.

Around 35,000 protesters gathered at the border of Gaza and Israeli territory Monday to object to the embassy move, continuing the "Great March of Return" demonstrations which have been ongoing since March in the run up to the 70th anniversary of the founding of the state of Israel and expulsion of thousands of Palestinians.

Numerous outlets painted Israel as the aggressor in the violence, as its security forces opened fire when mass protests erupted after the opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has defended the military's use of lethal force. "The media are playing propaganda wing for a terrorist group".

After Monday's horrific death toll at the Gaza border, there's been angry exchanges at the United Nations between Israeli and Palestinian envoys.

What has been the worldwide reaction? White House spokesman Raj Shah was quoted by the BBC as saying that "the responsibility for these tragic deaths rests squarely with Hamas", which is "intentionally and cynically provoking this response".

Funerals are being held for the people killed when Israeli troops opened fire during Palestinian protests.

Turkey has been one of the most vocal critics of Israel's response to the Gaza protests and of the U.S. Embassy move, recalling its ambassadors from Tel Aviv and Washington and calling for an emergency meeting of Islamic nations on Friday. She Pompeo said sadly they could not, as the decision has already been made. It is a settlement, not an embassy. "We believe that, because of our history, South Africa has the legitimacy and authority to act as steward in brokering peace in the Middle East".

The atmosphere at the dedication ceremony was certainly in stark contrast to that at the Gaza border. He says President Donald Trump's strategy is key.

"Let's remember that the Hamas terrorist organization has been inciting violence for years, long before the United States chose to move our embassy", Haley said.

Rep. Steve Russell, another Oklahoma City Republican, called the embassy move a historic and long overdue recognition of reality.

Trump's move has sparked a powerful reaction from Palestinians, who claim East Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state.

The Arab League that comprises 22 member states has asked the global community to oppose the "unjust decision" by Israel and the US.

It was among 21 countries that failed to vote at a UN General Assembly in December 2017.

"How many Palestinians have to die before you take action?".

The legislation, which became law in 1995, contained a clause that allowed presidents to postpone its enactment to protect national security.

Relations between Ankara and Washington, two NATO allies, have been deeply strained over the embassy move, disagreements over military deployment in north Syria, and court cases against Turkish and US nationals in each country.
