Belgium calls for United Nations probe, summons Israeli ambassador over Gaza violence

Arab League says U.S. relocation of embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem is “illegal.” Arab League says U.S. relocation of embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem is “illegal.”

Israel did the same to the Turkish consul in Jerusalem.

"This can't be a community that supports violence and occupation", she said. He earlier stated that the council needed to speak out against Hamas. Israel, however, has consistently refused to recognize the right, fearing that a mass movement of Palestinians across the border could make Israeli Jews a minority in the country.

While addressing a UNSC meeting Riyad Mansour said that the U.S. was responsible for the Palestinian deaths.

"Who can possibly find words to console the mother of a child that has been killed? Who?"

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern condemned the "devastating one-sided loss of life" following the protests.

Israel's ambassador to Ireland will not be expelled after troops shot dead dozens of Palestinian protesters yesterday, according to Taoiseach Leo Varadkar. However, the White House, like Haley, on Monday refuted any connection to protests at the Gaza strip. Based on the news coverage of the riots, which western media repeatedly called "protests", their efforts are unfortunately paying off.

Over sixty Palestinians were killed during Monday protests over the opening of the new U.S. embassy in Jerusalem, one day ahead of 'Nakba Day, ' according to the Gaza Health Ministry.

Monday was the bloodiest single day for Palestinians since the Gaza conflict in 2014.

Citing widespread opposition in the United Nations to the embassy move, Mr Erdogan said: "The US claims to be powerful".

Haley, speaking at the beginning of the session, said the location of the US Embassy has no bearing on whatever Israelis and Palestinians might negotiate and described the opening of the facility as "a cause for celebration".

For a coach like Mike D'Antoni, who patented his seven seconds or less offense with the Suns, this team is the polar opposite. Houston used a 9-3 spurt, where James Harden scored five, to cut the lead to 103-96 with less than five minutes to go.

Following Monday's border clashes Turkey pulled its ambassadors to Israel and the USA and expelled the Israeli ambassador in Ankara.

The embassy inauguration - which took place on the 70th anniversary of Israel's founding - followed Trump's 6 December recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Israeli soldiers, on the Israeli side of the border with the Gaza Strip, watch Palestinian protesters, in Gaza, May 14, 2018.

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

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov repeated Moscow's objection to the USA move.

Also speaking at the event, Solidarity-PBP TD Richard Boyd Barrett called for sanctions on Israel and a tougher response from the Irish government as well as the wider global community.

Riyad Mansour, the Palestinian representative at the United Nations, said the embassy opening had violated worldwide law and Security Council resolutions. Trump had denounced the resolution and called for the United States to wield its veto.

Trump has stood firm in his position and called Monday a "big day for Israel" on Twitter.

He has called an emergency meeting of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation in Istanbul on Friday to discuss the Gaza violence.
