Theresa May calls for independent inquiry into 'tragic' Gaza deaths

Gaza had its bloodiest day Monday since 2014, as tens of thousands of Palestinians protested along the frontier against the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem.

The toll included a baby who died from tear gas inhalation along with eight children under the age of 16, the ministry said.

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.

Which suggests that Hamas, the terrorist group that rules Gaza, incited protesters to dash toward Israeli military positions, likely knowing that many would be killed.

Speaking alongside the British prime minister, Mr Erdogan said: 'While we are focusing our talks on the Syria issue, yesterday unfortunately significant incidents have unfolded in Palestine after the USA chose to move their embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv.

NPR interviewed a young Palestinian protesting on the border who had a kite with swastikas on it.

Hamas said 10 of those killed in Monday's clashes were members of the organisation, though Israel claims that 24 militants were among the fatalities.

Ms Haley said the opening of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem "does not undermine prospects for peace in any way". But in the wake of Monday's deadly violence, they morphed into demonstrations against Israel's excessive use of force.

"This is a sovereign decision and as a sovereign decision, we recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel".

"When we talk about peaceful resistance, we are deceiving the public", Zahhar said.

Senate urged government to coordinate with the global community to raise these human rights violations globally with a view to seeking a final settlement of both Palestine and Kashmir disputes in accordance with United Nations resolutions.

U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley defended Israel, saying, "No country in this chamber would act with more restraint than Israel has".

Afghani said she'd like the Canadian government at least tell the Israeli ambassador that this is not OK.

State broadcaster TRT said the ambassador was being told to leave.

At the United Nations general assembly in December 2017, nine countries, including the USA and Israel, voted against a resolution that, in effect, called on the U.S. to withdraw its recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Eventually, pro-Palestinian demonstrators took to the streets.

In a phone call to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, French President Emmanuel Macron condemned the violence in Gaza and spoke of the importance of protecting civilians and their right to protest.

Mr Netanyahu retorted in a statement: "Erdogan is among Hamas's biggest supporters and there is no doubt that he well understands terrorism and slaughter".
