  • Protests turning deadly

Haley said at an emergency session of the U.N. Security Council Tuesday that Israel showed "restraint" as members of Hamas hurled firebombs and stones toward the troops across the Gaza border and denied the violence was in reaction to the new U.S. Embassy's opening in Jerusalem.

Ankara said that US President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and open an embassy there was "violating global law and all relevant UN Resolutions".

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Israel had committed a "horrible massacre" and accused Mr Netanyahu of having "the blood of Palestinians on his hands".

"I said I was going to move the embassy to Jerusalem and I did it", Graham eluded to Trump's message to the world.

In the statement, the chairperson expressed deep concern about the prevailing situation in the Palestinian territories, following the relocation of the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. "It's actually the only embassy in Jerusalem‚ all other embassies are in Tel Aviv‚" he said.

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freehand has urged cooler heads to calm the conflict in Gaza as violence has increased to its deadliest in years. Hamas leaders had to know that the carnage would ignite an worldwide backlash against Israel and the U.S.

"(I'm) as realistically optimistic as can be", Sidiqi said.

The Trump administration's response to the violence in Gaza this week once again places it at odds with Europe and key United States allies.

As thousands of Palestinians protested on the Gaza border 40 miles away, Israeli forces opened fire, killing dozens of protesters, including many young people.

It may be recalled that both houses of the Parliament have already voiced their position on the United States decision.

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

A senior Hamas leader, Khalil Al-Hayya, was quoted in Reuters as saying the protest purposefully coincided with Trump's "deplorable crime of moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem".

"In any self-respecting democratic state, there are other non-lethal means than using live ammunition to contain the masses, but encouraging Gazans to try to illegally cross the border while causing damage is also reprehensible", the statement said.

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. It also recalled its ambassador to Israel.

Israel's military says protesters were trying to storm the border fence between Israel and Gaza. They used children as shields in order claim Israel was attacking them.
