Palestinian Authority Recalls US Ambassador Over Jerusalem Embassy Move

The U.N.'s Middle East envoy said there was no justifying the killings of more than 50 Palestinians by Israeli fire at the Gaza border, and several Security Council members called for an independent investigation, but the council had no unified message Tuesday as the USA said Israel had acted with "restraint".

She continued: "In between Hamas and a very extreme Israeli prime minister, we have the blood of children".

Monday's protests were fuelled by the opening of the new US Embassy in Jerusalem, after it was moved from Tel Aviv. Many countries expressed their concern over the situation in Gaza, summoning Israeli envoys and urging Israel to exercise restraint.

He strongly condemned the disproportionate use of force by the Israeli army, which resulted in the killing of more than 50 Palestinian demonstrators, while many more were injured.

But Nikolai Mladenov, the U.N.'s Middle East envoy, said there was "no justification for the killing" and "no excuse".

Simon Bridges said he was unable to comment about whether or not Israel's use of force against the protesters was proportionate.

"We know that the only way forward is through direct negotiations between Palestinians and Israelis to get to a two-state solution", said Trudeau.

The ministry called on the global community to shoulder its responsibility by stopping violence and protecting the Palestinian people.

"The death toll alone warranted such an inquiry, which should be made public and hold perpetrators to account", said Karen Pierce, British ambassador to the United Nations. Thousands massed on the edges of the Gaza Strip to protest the American move, and economic hardships in Gaza.

After Trump announced that the USA would move its embassy to Jerusalem at least ten other countries said they meant to follow suit.

For those who have a problem with the United States operating its embassy in Israel from Jerusalem, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has a message, "Take it up with God, He did this".

This week, as the U.S. opened an embassy in Jerusalem, Israeli forces made headlines for killing children and the disabled along its borders. "The location of the embassy has no bearing on the specific boundaries of Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem, or the resolution of contested borders".

It may be recalled that both houses of the Parliament have already voiced their position on the U.S. decision.

Sweeping Israeli restrictions on the movement of people and goods into and out of Gaza, exacerbated by Egypt's sealed border on the south, have crippled the economy, fed a humanitarian crisis and snuffed out young people's hope for a brighter future. He didn't immediately give details of his proposal.

If you read the headlines coming out of the "progressive" media regarding the violence in Gaza, you are presented a false narrative.

Monday was the deadliest day in Gaza since the 2014 war with Israel.

On the Israeli side of the border, Israeli sharpshooters watch the fence for breaches by protesters.

Earlier on Tuesday, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said Israel had acted with exceptional "restraint" in dealing with the clashes on the Gaza border.

The United States has blocked the adoption of a Security Council statement that would have called for an independent probe into the violence, diplomats said.

"We do have indications of Iranian funding into Hamas, " said Danon, talking to reporters before the Security Council meeting. Israel's ambassador, meanwhile, called for condemning Hamas. Again, the USA violates worldwide law and covers the crimes of the state of Israel. "Why are you paralyzed?"
