Stand for Gaza: Pro-Palestine & Pro-Israel Protesters Face off in London

A Palestinian demonstrator uses a slingshot to hurl stones towards Israeli troops during clashes at a protest near the Gaza Israel border

Just in time for Monday's official move of the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, there's a Trump "Temple Coin".

It said thousands of Jordanians took part in protest marches in support of Jerusalem and the Palestinian people.

Al-Quds quoted Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh telling the crowds at the border protest that "we are waiting for the great march the day after tomorrow".

Pro-Palestine protesters were holding banners reading "Stand up For Gaza, Stop the Killing", "Nakba70, We Are Returning" and chanting slogans such as "Freedom Now" and "End Occupation".

The war crimes committed by Israel on the Gaza border over the last six weeks have elicited no critical response from the United States corporate media; in fact the killing and wounding of thousands of Palestinians has been treated as a virtual non-event.

Members of Ezz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades carry the body of 23 years-old Bahaa Qudeih during his funeral in Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip on May 6, 2018, after he was killed while attempting to infiltrate Israel from the Palestinian enclave the Israeli army and Palestinian medical sources said, in the latest incident in escalating cross-border violence.

North Korea will publicly dismantle the Punggye-ri Nuclear Test Site in the next two weeks, according to state media. North Korea has conducted six nuclear tests at this site.

Monday's border march is meant to protest the planned move of the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to contested Jerusalem that day. More than 1,800 Palestinians have been shot and wounded, including 146 on Friday. Palestinians call Israel's Independence Day, which falls on May 14 on the Gregorian calendar, as the nakba or "catastrophe". He has raised the possibility of a mass border breach, comparing protesters to a "starving tiger", unpredictable and full of pent-up anger.

An Islamist terror group which seeks to destroy Israel, Hamas violently took control of Gaza from Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah in 2007, two years after Israel withdrew its military and civilian presence from the Strip.

Israeli soldiers fired live rounds and volleys of tear gas.

"What's the problem with hundreds of thousands breaking through a fence that is not a border?"

"People will be coming back to work as the embassy branch of the Jerusalem embassy, and I think we're all very happy and excited to be participating in such a historic event", Friedman said. Helping reinforce the Israeli blockade, Egypt has kept the Rafah crossing point, Gaza's main gate to the outside world, closed most of the time since the Hamas takeover. The Palestinians demand this right not only for those of the hundreds of thousands of refugees who are still alive - a figure estimated in the low tens of thousands - but also for their descendants, who number in the millions.

The soldier was struck by a vehicle, and the driver fled the scene.
