Hamas to Blame for Deadly Gaza Violence: White House


Canada either was - or was not - invited to the big ceremony in Jerusalem earlier this week. At least 2,700 were said to be injured. The key reads, "We will return to Jerusalem". "It was surreal and frustrating".

Monday was the deadliest day in the region since the 2014 Gaza war, as 60 Palestinians were killed and more than 2,700 wounded amid protests over the USA embassy's move to Jerusalem.

In the face of global condemnation over Israeli violence against unarmed Palestinian protesters, Israeli Ambassador Danny Danon called on the council to condemn Hamas.

South Africa also recalled its envoy to Israel.

A second Palestinian was martyred by Israeli fire Tuesday, May 15, 2018, the health ministry in the strip announced, a day after 60 people were killed in the worst violence in years.

Sanders also said "Hamas violence does not justify Israel firing on unarmed protesters" as a response to claims by the Israeli and USA governments that place blame for the dozens of protesters killed "squarely on Hamas".

Congresswoman Betty McCollum said Monday the embassy move was fueled Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's agenda of occupation and oppression and criticized Donald Trump for "fueling the conflict".

The Greatest Team in Premier League History?
While there is no doubting their quality, they have benefitted from a weak field in the Premier League. Former Manchester United junior Eamon Dunphy insists champions Manchester City are overrated.

Palestinians have been protesting at the border for weeks at the urging of the Hamas terrorist organization, which controls Gaza.

"We believe that Hamas is responsible for these tragic deaths, that their rather cynical exploitation of the situation is what's leading to these deaths, and we want them to stop", White House Deputy Press Secretary, Raj Shah told reporters on Monday.

A handful of US lawmakers nonetheless condemned the violence, including Sen. "I went to the hospital and I knew she was dead". Israel, he said, regretted "every casualty".

On occasion of the 70th anniversary of the 1948 Palestinian exodus, the Palestinian National Liberation Movement, Fatah, on Tuesday said people of Palestine are more determined to struggle for an independent Palestine with Jerusalem as its capital. They used children as shields in order claim Israel was attacking them.

At a protest on Monday in the USA capital that was organized by the Jewish left-wing activist group If Not Now, about 150 people blocked the street near the Trump International Hotel.

"I am profoundly shocked at the death toll and injuries inflicted on people in Palestine", said Mr Varadkar. "We didn't agree with it but it's a reality now, it won't be our position and we will continue to work for peace in the region".

"It does not undermine the prospects for peace in any way, and yet, for some, this is supposedly a cause for violence", she said.
