Turkey expels Israeli consul in spat over Gaza violence

Turkey expels Israeli consul in spat over Gaza violence

Meanwhile, in an interview with Vice News on Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that the Palestinians would never "conquer" Jerusalem.

In addition to protesting the relocation of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, Palestinians were also marking the 70th anniversary of what they call the Nakba, or "catastrophe", of Israel's creation in 1948. The two posts in northern and southern Gaza Strip are close to the border with Israel.

60 Palestinians, triggering a wave of worldwide condemnation.

Nearly a month of demonstrations was staged to call for the right of Palestinians to return to their ancestral land, and they culminated during the controversial inauguration of a new USA embassy in Jerusalem on Monday.

After Trump announced that the USA would move its embassy to Jerusalem at least ten other countries said they meant to follow suit.

"Let's remember that the Hamas terrorist organization has been inciting violence for years, long before the United States chose to move our embassy", Haley told United Nations officials, according to Politico.

"We highly value our relations with all European Union member states".

Angered by the U.S. embassy move and the Gaza bloodshed, Turkey has expelled Israel's ambassador and consul to Istanbul.

"Lethal force may only be used as a measure of last, not first, resort, and only when there is an immediate threat to life or serious injury", said Rupert Colville, a spokesman for the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, in a statement.

Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu said Guatemala was a "friend" which had also followed the U.S. to be the second country to recognise Israel 70 years ago.

Representatives from Cameroon, Congo, Ivory Coast, Rwanda, South Sudan, Nigeria, Kenya, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Angola, Zambia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo attended the event hosted by the Israeli government, and which marked America's official recognition of Jerusalem as the capital city of Israel.

Many council members also re-emphasized their distance from the USA decision to open an embassy in Jerusalem and recognize it as Israel's capital.

Tuesday's meeting came amid growing diplomatic fallout from the violence and the USA embassy move.

"We believe that you know Hamas is responsible for these tragic deaths, that their rather cynical exploitation of the situation, it is what's leading to these deaths and we want them to stop", he said.

The move is also seen by some as a gesture to elicit USA support at a time when Morales stands accused by Guatemalan prosecutors of accepting illegal campaign contributions.

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 Israeli military has come under heavy global criticism for firing on unarmed protesters, and faces accusations of using disproportionate force.

On Wednesday, Israeli artillery batteries shelled three Hamas-affiliated outposts near the Gaza-Israel fence. One Israeli soldier has been wounded.

The Israeli military also released a video of civilians claiming that Hamas had forced people to rush the border wall toward Israel. "They have rocket armament, personal armament and another kind of armament - their children and women".

But the organizers of the Hamas-led border marches rejected two of the trucks, which had come from Israel, despite widespread shortages of key supplies.

"We call for a credible worldwide investigation into the crimes committed by the occupation", Arab League chief Ahmed Abul Gheit said at an extraordinary meeting of Arab foreign ministers in Cairo on Thursday to discuss the violence. Israel retaliated with its own expulsions of top Turkish diplomats.

But with the images of rifle-toting Israeli snipers facing off against seemingly unarmed protesters beamed around the world, the remarks by Hamas may do little to convince Israel's detractors, including the Palestinians.

He said that while the protests may not have been peaceful, the use of live ammunition was an inappropriate response. "The recalls are to consult with our Ambassadors to these states about their positions and their commitment to the EU's positions", said the PA's Foreign Ministry. "So, Israel or any other nation-if they're a sovereign nation-should be allowed to defend themselves".

"This is a peaceful resistance bolstered by a military force and by security agencies, and enjoying tremendous popular support", he said. "No country in this chamber would act with more restraint than Israel has". The Guatemalan Congress recently passed a law marking May 14 as "Israel-Guatemala Friendship Day".

Morales said his country, Israel and the United States "share friendship, courage and loyalty".
