Media vilifies Israel for 8-month-old Palestinian killed during Gaza protests

Israel says its planes bombed militant targets in Gaza Israel says its planes bombed milita

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.

Israel, however, regards all of the city, including the eastern sector it captured in the 1967 Middle East war and annexed, as its "eternal and indivisible capital" in a move that has not won global recognition.

Foreign ministers from the League meet in the Egyptian capital Cairo on Thursday, with the Palestinians hoping for a united front against Israel and the United States' decisive shift backing its ally.

Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales dedicated the embassy just two days after a high-powered American delegation marked the transfer of the U.S. Embassy.

Israel said it was a warranted response to numerous shooting incidents throughout Wednesday, including machine gun fire, which targeted the city of Sderot in the Southern District of Israel.

"I look forward to assessing with you the practical ways. that we can advance this friendship and this alliance", Netanyahu said.

The US and Guatemalan moves break with decades of worldwide consensus.

Monday's border confrontation was the culmination of a weeks-long protest campaign to break a border blockade that Israel and Egypt imposed after Hamas took over Gaza by force in 2007.

The federal government of Nigeria has condemned Israel's deadly response to clashes along the border with the Gaza Strip, in which 58 unarmed Palestinian demonstrators were killed.

"We are analyzing what kind of legal steps can be taken", he said, according to Turkey's Hurriyet daily, adding that his country was giving legal aid to the Palestinians. No one was reported hurt on either side.


Israel said many of those killed were members of Hamas and the Islamic Jihad terror groups who were using the violent protests as cover to carry out attacks and damage the border fence. Haley laid blame for Monday's violence on the Hamas extremists who rule Gaza and insisted it had nothing to do with the opening the embassy, a move that infuriated Palestinians. "They have rocket armament, personal armament and another kind of armament - their children and women".

The trucks entered Tuesday, as medical facilities in Gaza were struggling to treat hundreds of people wounded by Israeli fire the day before.

"Hamas is pushing people with a view of a massive infiltration into Israel, openly declaring their goal is to destroy Israel", Netanyahu said.

Hoyer's defense of Israel also came despite growing progressive criticism of Israeli human rights abuses.

Given the availability of those methods, United Nations special coordinator for the Middle East peace process Nickolay Mladenov told the Security Council Tuesday there was no justification for the killings.

Israel has faced worldwide criticism over its use of live fire against demonstrators.

Ngcukayitobi called on International Relations and Cooperation Minister Lindiwe Sisulu to cut all ties with Israel and expel the country's ambassador to South Africa, Lior Keinan.

At the same time, Israel has found other nations following the USA lead and rallying to its defense.

Meanwhile, Paraguay has also announced relocating its embassy to Jerusalem, whereas Romania, the Czech Republic and Honduras are considering doing the same. "So now it is necessary to hammer out a new approach to the resolution of the Palestinian issue", Demirhan said, citing the creation of a Palestinian state which he warned may turn into "a quite painful and bloody process".
