Egyptians angry over United States embassy move in Jerusalem

Egyptians angry over United States embassy move in Jerusalem

The ANC parliamentary caucus also condemned the violence and commended the government for withdrawing Ngombane.

The violence came as the U.S. opened a controversial embassy in Jerusalem.

The Israeli military said some 40,000 Palestinians had taken part in "violent riots" at 13 locations along Israel's security fence on Gaza's eastern border on Monday.

By late afternoon, at least 43 Palestinians, including five minors, were killed, the Gaza Health Ministry said.

This has been the deadliest day of violence between Israeli forces and the Islamic Hamas movement since they fought a war in the summer of 2014.

According to Waxman, a professor of Israel studies at Northeastern University, younger generations of Jews have generally felt more secure in the US and grown up overwhelmingly liberal and "dovish" in their politics. Only dozens, however, turned out.

Erdan said, "It's time for the heads of Hamas to pay a personal price for organizing these terror attacks".

U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said Monday's killings show the need for a political solution to the conflict.

Palestinians claim East Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state. The juxtaposition of violence on the Gaza border and festivities attended by a high-powered Trump administration delegation - captured on split screens in TV broadcasts around the world - briefly drew attention to the plight of Gaza and its 2 million people. It also accused Hamas militants of trying to carry out attacks under the cover of the protests. Two hundred minors were wounded while 30 injured protesters were in critical condition.

Netanyahu defended his military, saying: "Every country has an obligation to defend its borders".

The U.N. human rights office said, "It seems anyone is liable to be shot dead or injured: women, children, press, first responders, bystanders, and at nearly any point up to 700 meters from the fence".

When asked about possible peace talks between Israelis and Palestinians - and the timing of the most recent White House contact with Palestinian leaders - Shah said, "Well, I don't honestly have an answer for you on that". "If Hamas had not pushed them there, then nothing would happen".

"This is a mild but apt diplomatic response", ANC chief whip Jackson Mthembu said in a statement.

Israel faced growing backlash Tuesday.

The party said South Africa "must expel Israel's ambassadors with immediate effect", until Israel ends its illegal occupation of Palestine.

Ambassador Eitan Na'eh was ordered to leave "for a while", the Turkish Foreign Ministry said, a day after Ankara recalled its envoy from Israel.

The baby was with a relative during the violence at the Gaza-Israel border yesterday when tear gas canisters were fired at crowds.

But the United States, which blamed Hamas, blocked the adoption of a UN Security Council statement that would have called for an independent probe into the violence, diplomats said.

Last week, the Israeli government said the ongoing border protests constituted a "state of war" in which worldwide humanitarian law did not apply. Saudi Arabia, a leading Middle East ally that broke rank with much of the worldwide community to join Israel in welcoming Trump's decision to withdraw the us from landmark nuclear accord with Iran last week, also "rejected" the move, according to the official Saudi Press Agency.

"It seems that anyone is liable to be shot dead".

While Israel says it is only targeting "instigators", Colville acknowledged Israel's right to defend its borders, but said lethal force should be a "last resort". For them, Israel is the Holy Land that God gave the Jewish people.

At least 55 Palestinians were killed and 2,771 were injured on Monday as Israeli troops fired on demonstrators along the Gaza-Israel boundary protesting the opening of the USA embassy in Jerusalem, making it the deadliest day of violence since the 2014 Gaza war.
