Calls for investigation, but no consensus at UN Gaza meeting

Calls for investigation, but no consensus at UN Gaza meeting

Israeli troops killed two Palestinians and injured hundreds at the Gaza boundary fence on Tuesday as residents buried dozens of Palestinians who were shot and killed by Israeli forces a day earlier, Palestinian authorities said.

On the day the United States inaugurated its embassy in Jerusalem, Israeli gunfire killed 60 Palestinians during the Gaza border protests.

Bolivia's representative to the UN Security Council, Sacha Llorenti, began his talk at the emergency session on Tuesday by listing the names of the 61 Palestinians killed in this week's massacre of Gaza protesters by Israel.

In addition to the precarious humanitarian situation in Gaza, many Palestinians are angered by Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. "We remember our friends and Guatemala is our friend, then and now".

Most of the protesters killed this week by Israeli fire along the border with the Gaza Strip were members of Hamas, the militant group said Wednesday, an assertion that deepens the starkly different narratives on both sides over the deaths.

Ramazan begins in Pakistan too, in Bangladesh on Friday
The PMD on May 4 had issued a handout stating that there are fair chances for the moon to be sighted on May 16 evening. In a statement, President of Pakistan Mamnoon Hussain congratulated Muslims on the advent of Ramadan ul Mubarak.

Israel's military dropped leaflets into the enclave on Monday, warning Palestinians "not to serve as a tool of Hamas" or approach or damage Israel's frontier fence.

More violence was expected amid simmering tensions last night on the day that marked the 70th anniversary of the start of the first war between the newly created Jewish state and its Arab neighbours in 1948. Gunshots were fired in the air.

Thousands of Palestinian protesters stormed the border fence in Gaza this week with TV cameras recording, ensuring that sympathetic reporters would witness a one-sided clash with the Israeli army that claimed more than 50 lives, including an infant who reportedly died from inhaling tear gas.

Palestinians have been protesting for the past six weeks as part of the "March of Return", a demonstration calling for the right of Palestinian refugees and their descendants to return to areas that are today part of Israel.

The draft statement, obtained by The Associated Press, also expressed "outrage and sorrow" at the killings, sought an "independent and transparent investigation", and called on all sides to exercise restraint.

Walmart (WMT) Receives Outperform Rating from Robert W. Baird

"We have sent clear messages to the enemy via many worldwide and regional leaders that if the blockade continues we will not hesitate to use military resistance", he said.

In a strongly worded statement on Wednesday, Nehawu said it "condemns the cold-blooded execution" of Palestinians by "apartheid Israel". U.S. ambassador to Israel David Friedman also attended Wednesday's ceremony.

The White House as well as US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley have thus far placed sole responsibility for the violence on the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas and fervently defended Israel's right to defend itself.

US ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley made quite the statement on the Middle East at Tuesday's Security Council meeting - and it had nothing to do with her speech.

In contrast to the scenes in Gaza, Israeli dignitaries and guests attended a ceremony in Jerusalem to open the U.S. embassy following its relocation from Tel Aviv.
