More Protests Along Palestinian Border

On Monday, American officials marked the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem, which had been relocated from Tel Aviv.

Netanyahu had previously taken to Twitter to call Erdogan a "Hamas supporter" and said the Turkish leader should not try to "preach morality" to Israel.

Boyd Barrett also called for the immediate expulsion of the Israeli ambassador to Ireland, a call that was taken up by other speakers at the event and the crowd.

"I am profoundly alarmed and concerned by the sharp escalation of violence and the number of Palestinians killed and injured in the Gaza protests", said U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres.

"We're aware of the reports of continued violence in Gaza today".

Nikki Haley denied that Monday's deaths had anything to do with the US decision to open its embassy in Jerusalem.

In a statement, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Co-operation said Palestinians are practising their right to protest and demanding their legitimate rights.

Monday was the bloodiest day in Gaza since the 2014 war between Israel and Gaza's Hamas rulers.

"The EU is finding it hard to speak with one voice on the question of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and in particular the attitude of Israel vis-a-vis the Palestinians, especially in Gaza".

Seattle OKs taxing companies like Amazon to aid the homeless
The tax approved Monday is much smaller than the $500-per-head proposal that had been under consideration for many weeks. Head taxes are extremely rare in the USA and the ones in place are a fraction of Seattle's proposal.

The military has said presumably less lethal rubber-coated steel pellets are not effective in keeping demonstrators from the fence.

The chairperson reiterated the solidarity of the AU with the Palestinian people in their legitimate quest for an independent and sovereign State with East Jerusalem as its capital.

The United Nations resolutions are based on the following principles: A Palestinian State and an Israeli State based on the 1967 lines; Jerusalem as the capital of both States; an end to the illegal Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories; and the return of Palestinian refugees.

Relations with South Africa and Turkey are not that important to Israel, so if they "want their ambassadors back home, they are most welcome", former national security adviser Yaakov Amidror said on Tuesday.

It may be recalled that both houses of the Parliament have already voiced their position on the United States decision.

"These killings - we always say they are not warranted".

"As American Jews, we see Netanyahu saying he speaks for all Jews, and we're saying that's not true", volunteer organizer Sarah Brammer-Shlay told HuffPost on Tuesday, saying actions in Israel were "pushed by our government".

Hundreds of protesters carrying Palestinian flags and wearing keffiyehs took to the streets of the Loop Tuesday evening, one day after Israeli soldiers shot and killed at least 59 Palestinians during mass protests along the Gaza border as the USA embassy in Israel moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
