Israeli military sends aid to Gaza

PE protesters join rage against Israel

Palestinians organized the six-week demonstration called the "Great March of Return" in the eastern part of the Gaza Strip along the Israeli border.

While some members said the U.N.'s most powerful body needed to speak as one to try to calm the volatile situation - and the Palestinian envoy implored, "When are you going to act?" - a proposed statement had stalled Monday after the USA blocked it. "The death toll alone warrants such a comprehensive inquiry", British Ambassador Karen Pierce said. These countries also demanded an worldwide investigation.

Palestinian leaders said by relocating the embassy the United States had created incitement and instability in the region and abrogated its role as a peace mediator.

South Africa's Julius Malema has condemned African countries for attending the opening of the United States embassy in Jerusalem.

Israeli-Palestinian tensions have been on the rise since December, when US President Donald Trump announced the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital city of Israel, triggering furious protests violently suppressed by the IDF.

The ministry of foreign Affairs, in a statement, on Thursday, May 17, expressed the federal government's concern over the killings.

The Muslim world has made several other moves to protest Trump's decision to follow the US law set by Congress.

60 Palestinians, triggering a wave of worldwide condemnation.

Populist cleric Sadr all but wins Iraq parliament election
However, Muqtada al-Sadr is projecting a strong nationalist personality at the moment and is not favored by Iran or the Americans. Over the weekend, Iraqis voted in the first general election since the country declared victory over Islamic State past year .

Israel, which has faced blistering global 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. He didn't immediately give details of his proposal.

The Gaza protesters set tires ablaze, sending up thick plumes of black smoke, and hurled firebombs and stones toward Israeli troops across the border.

Palestinians will be looking for more than lip service from worldwide bodies, and especially from Arab nations, to counter the weight of the USA which under Trump has now swung firmly behind Israel.

Morales called it a "transcendental moment for future generations" who will "remember that friendly countries took courageous decisions in favour of Israel and we do this because you have a special place in our hearts".

"It's time to tell Palestinians: Abandon your fantasy of destroying Israel".

"The issue is that even if we use the harshest rhetoric against Israel, its occupational actions and the killing of civilians will not stop while we use Israel's military technologies, comply with the agreements on development of its military-industrial complex, as well as continue clinching mutual arms deals and turn a blind eye to the activities of companies that invest in territories under occupation, which violates a United Nations resolution".

ANC Eastern Cape provincial secretary Lulama Ngcukayitobi labelled the Gaza attack barbaric and a violation of global law.

Israeli Ambassador Danny Danon told the council that the global community had done too little to stop violence on the part of Palestinians. Under such circumstances, with all hope of peace talks gone, why wouldn't young men rush the security fence?
