Israeli, Palestinian Envoys In Angry Exchanges At UN Security Council

Israeli, Palestinian Envoys In Angry Exchanges At UN Security Council

Israel says the military has delivered eight trucks full of humanitarian aid and medical supplies to the Gaza Strip, where Israeli troops firing from across the border have killed almost 60 Palestinians at mass border protests.

The Palestinian Authority recalled its envoy to Washington, D.C., after the United States moved its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

But a spokesman for Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland says Canada wasn't invited.

"Such violence is destructive to peace efforts and we call on all sides to show restraint".

The US blocked on Monday a call for an independent inquiry into the Gaza-border violence.

Palestinian demonstrators run for cover from Israeli fire and tear gas during a protest against the USA embassy move to Jerusalem at the Israel-Gaza border in the southern Gaza Strip, May 14, 2018.

The date of Monday's embassy opening also angered Palestinians, coming the day before they commemorate their mass displacement in the 1948 war surrounding the creation of Israel.

Freeland's press secretary didn't let the other actors off the hook. She said all parties to the conflict have the responsibility to protect civilians.

Prime Minister Binali Yildirim earlier confirmed that Turkey had called the OIC summit, saying it would be followed by a giant rally in support of the Palestinians.

China's 1st home-built aircraft carrier heads out for sea trials
Besides India, the US, Russia, the UK, France, Italy, Thailand and China operate a total of 18 aircraft carriers. But it is still the USA that fields more aircraft carriers than any other country.

On Monday, Freeland tweeted that the violence against civilians, journalists and children was "inexcusable".

Both the United Kingdom and Germany had called for an independent probe earlier.

From withdrawing from the Paris climate accord and more recently the Iran nuclear deal to moving the USA embassy to Jerusalem, the United States and Europe no longer see eye-to-eye on key issues almost as often as they did under previous administrations. The resolution tallied at 128-9 in favour of condemning Trump's move. He also added that the US decision and any other scenario.

The statement said that Ireland was also "very disturbed" by reports of injuries suffered by health workers.

Haley noted President Donald Trump said the embassy's location had no bearing on resolving contested borders or Jerusalem's holy sites.

While addressing a UNSC meeting Riyad Mansour said that the USA was responsible for the Palestinian deaths. But in the wake of Monday's deadly violence, they morphed into demonstrations against Israel's excessive use of force.

The clashes took place as the new United States embassy was inaugurated in Jerusalem. French president Emmanuel Macron also condemned the killings.

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 worldwide community.

"Our government has been shamefully silent on recent developments in Gaza, and the Prime Minister should condemn the violence, call on Israel to cease violations of worldwide law, and support an independent investigation into these deaths".
