Israeli army fires tank shells at Gaza military facilities, no injuries reported

PE protesters join rage against Israel

The foreign ministers' meeting is being held upon the request of Saudi Arabia, which presides the current session of the Arab Summit, in order to reach a unified Arab decision regarding the Israeli aggression against Palestinians and the unlawful decision to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, assistant Secretary-General of the Arab League, Hossam Zaki, previously stated.

Weeks of protests and clashes along the border may be reaching an end as Ramadan begins, but the death toll has led to worldwide condemnations of Israel and calls for an independent investigation.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had visited Palestine in February.

Pushing back against foreign censure of its army's actions, Israel has - with Washington's backing - accused Hamas of using civilians as cover for attacks across the frontier fence and to distract from Gaza's internal problems.

On Wednesday the Palestinian Foreign Ministry announced the recall of its envoys in Romania, Hungary, Austria and the Czech Republic because those countries participated in the reception for the United States delegation that inaugurated the embassy.

Palestinians seek East Jerusalem as the capital of a state they want to establish in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip.

While reports from Gaza suggested that the majority of protesters were unarmed, Ms. Haley called attention to the tactics employed by some, which included the use of Molotov cocktails and other weapons.

Road teams that have taken a 2-0 series lead in the National Hockey League conference finals have an 18-1 series record. The game was a return to form for the Lightning defense, which had been stout before the Capitals series.

Countries have summoned and recalled ambassadors, the United Nations has issued condemnations and some have called for an investigation of Israel's actions.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had reported that the government of Iran said on Tuesday, May 15, that Israeli operatives should be tried as war criminals over the "brutal massacre" of Gazan protesters on Monday, May 14.

Young men filled sandbags to prepare for future protests at encampments along Gaza's Israeli border on Thursday, though tents were mostly empty as Palestinians joined Muslims around the world observing the daylight fast at the start of Ramadan.

President Reuven Rivlin called for restraint on Thursday in the wake of a fresh row between Israel and Turkey over the killing by Israeli forces of 60 Palestinians earlier this week during protests on the Gaza border.

It also said its forces had killed a squad of Hamas gunmen who opened fire at troops. Paraguay said it also will move its embassy to Jerusalem. More than 110 people have died and 2,500 have been injured since late March, Palestinian officials said.

Israel was more than prepared to put down the violent assault on its border with Gaza, which had all the appearances of a staged attack that turned the area into a virtual war zone. Romania, the Czech Republic and Honduras have said they are considering doing the same.
