Israel launches new air raid in Gaza

  • PE protesters join rage against Israel

Organizations including Adalah-The Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights in Israel emphasized that "over the past seven weeks, Israeli occupying forces have excessively used force to suppress the Great Return March in the Gaza Strip, willfully targeting and killing protected persons".

Abbas no longer felt bound by these understanding after President Donald Trump in December recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital - ignoring Palestinian claims to the Israeli-annexed eastern sector - and this week moved the U.S. Embassy there.

Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Israel did everything it could to prevent civilian casualties but that Gaza's Hamas rulers were to blame for using them as human shields.

The two posts in northern and southern Gaza Strip are close to the border with Israel.

The Islamic militant group has emerged without tangible achievements from weekly border protests in which more than 100 Palestinians were killed and hundreds wounded by Israeli fire since late March.

There have been numerous calls for an independent investigation into the deaths, with Britain, Germany and Switzerland among those supporting such action.

Vietnam is concerned about the ongoing tension and violence at the Gaza Strip and the country is on the side of peace and Palestinians, spokeswoman Le Thi Thu Hang of Vietnam's foreign ministry said Thursday.

"Israel, which is supported by the USA, can go further in terms of its expansionist strategy in the region despite the fact that its actions have no legal justification", Atlioglu underscored, warning of possible new casualties among Palestinians in the near future.

Israel, which has faced blistering worldwide criticism over its response, is likely to latch on to the remarks to bolster its claims that Hamas has used the weekly border protests as cover to stage attacks.

Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attended the embassy's opening on Wednesday in an office complex in west Jerusalem.

In an interview with Baladna TV, a private Palestinian news outlet that broadcasts via Facebook, senior Hamas official Salah Bardawil said 50 out of the protesters killed Monday were Hamas members, with the others being "from the people."That's according to The Associated Press".

Israel has also launched several wars on the Palestinian coastal sliver, the last of which began in early July 2014.

On Monday, Israeli fire killed 60 Palestinians who were protesting along the Gaza frontier as a ceremony was held in Jerusalem to mark the transfer of the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to the city.

Erdogan on Tuesday said "Netanyahu is the PM of an apartheid state". While officials from Israel and the USA inaugurated the embassy with smiles on their faces, the Palestinians wept and cried for the deaths of their loved ones.

"We are very disappointed at African countries which had celebrated the declaration of Jerusalem as the official capital city of Israel by the USA".
