UNSG General condemns Israel-Palestine clashes

UNSG General condemns Israel-Palestine clashes

There were protests Thursday outside many USA embassies and consulates around the world - including in New Delhi, Hong Kong, Manila and Istanbul - over America's support for Israel.

Though the Hamas-run Gaza health ministry has been stressing the dire need for more medical supplies, Hamas refused to accept those from Israel, turning the two Israeli trucks around even after they had passed through the crossing.

The minister reiterated the Kingdom of Bahrain's steadfast position in support of the Palestinian cause and the aspirations of the brotherly Palestinian people, affirming their right to establish an independent and sovereign state on the borders of June 4, 1967 with East Jerusalem as its capital.

Israeli forces killed 60 Palestinians on Monday when tens of thousands of Palestinians had gathered near the border, while smaller numbers approached the fence and sought to break through. One Israeli soldier has been reported wounded.

The protests are also a part of the "Great March of Return", wherein the Palestinian protesters have asserted that they want to return to their ancestors' homes in Israel when they were displaced during the war between Israel and Palestine in 1948.

"There is no harm in Arab states collectively recalling their ambassadors in Washington to their capitals for consultations", Mr Al Maliki said in Cairo. Others also condemned the USA, but none of the members said they would recall their ambassadors.

With the US embassy finally moving to Israel's capital of Jerusalem, media narratives on the city's history promote distortions, half-truths and outright lies. In this regard, he called on the global community to carry out "its ethical and legal responsibility" for the protection of the Palestinian people to Israel.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) on Thursday blasted the media's anti-Israel bias in the wake of recent violent riots at the Gaza-Israel border organized by the terrorist group Hamas.

Palestinian security sources told Agence France-Presse the target was a Hamas base. The meeting comes after Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi on Wednesday said Cairo was in communication with both sides "so that this bloodshed would stop". There have been numerous calls for an independent investigation into the deaths, with Britain, Germany, Canada and Switzerland among those supporting such action.

Special rallies and gatherings will be organised to express solidarity with the oppressed people of Palestine and to condemn Israel's state terrorism in Gaza. "War incites war, violence incites violence".

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres voiced strong disapproval Thursday over the "tragic loss of lives" in the Gaza Strip after Israel killed scores of Palestinian demonstrators earlier in the week.
