UN Security Council Deeply Divided Over How To Stop Violence In Gaza

"Erdogan is one of the biggest supporters of Hamas, so there's no doubt he's an expert on terror and slaughter", Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tweeted.

Monday's inauguration of the new us embassy sparked the bloodiest day in four years at the Israel-Gaza border as Israeli forces killed more than 50 Palestinians.

A relative of Palestinian Ahmed al-Rantisi, killed during a protest at the Israel-Gaza border, is consoled at a hospital in the northern Gaza Strip on May 14, 2018.

U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres also proposed an investigation, after a deadly protest in Gaza in March.

The White House closely aligned itself with the Israeli position, saying Monday that "Hamas is responsible" for the mounting Palestinian death toll and dismissed reports suggesting otherwise as a "propaganda attempt".

"We know that the only way forward is through direct negotiations between Palestinians and Israelis to get to a two-state solution", said Trudeau.

The event was overshadowed by mass protests along the Gaza border in which Israeli fire killed 62 Palestinians.

One of the leaders of the march‚ and former Muslim Judicial Council president‚ Sheik Ebrahim Gabriels said they "respected and honoured" the South African government's withdrawal of its ambassador from Israel and asked that the Israeli embassy in Pretoria be closed. Most nations there criticize Israel for using disproportionate force against the protesters.

Haley said at an emergency session of the U.N. Security Council Tuesday that Israel showed "restraint" as members of Hamas hurled firebombs and stones toward the troops across the Gaza border and denied the violence was in reaction to the new U.S. Embassy's opening in Jerusalem.

However, there are concerns that trade friction with the U.S. could affect demand for exports. It ended the longest straight period of uninterrupted growth since the late 1980s.

Hamas and Islamic Jihad confirmed that a combined total of at least 13 of their operatives were killed, or "martyred", during violent clashes with Israeli forces.

A handful of USA lawmakers nonetheless condemned the violence, including Sen.

Abbas, 83, was discharged from a Ramallah hospital earlier in the day Tuesday after undergoing a surgical procedure on his middle ear, according to the official WAFA news agency.

"You must tell Hamas that violence is not the answer", he said. The group of senators, members of Congress and activists also criticized president Donald Trump for moving the us embassy from Tel Aviv to the occupied city of Jerusalem.

"It is very, very tragic that they are celebrating an illegal action while Israel is killing and injuring thousands of Palestinian civilians".

As part of the demonstrations, Jewish groups built an embassy of freedom in the streets of D.C.

Moussa Mahamt, Chairperson of Africa Union Commission, said on Tuesday that the relocation of the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem can only further intensify the tensions in the region.

"This cycle of violence in Gaza needs to end", he said.
