Israeli military sends aid to Gaza

Israeli military sends aid to Gaza

The U.S. was among the few countries that came to Israel's defense, backing its right to protect its border on the same day that it countered global disapproval of moving its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

And Democracy Now! returned to form with on-the-ground reporting from Gaza by its correspondent Sharif Abdel Kouddous after years of bare-bones coverage of Palestine.

On Tuesday, Palestinian Islamic Jihad said that three of the victims had been their people. Israel's ambassador, meanwhile, called for condemning Hamas.

Nearly a month of demonstrations was staged to call for the right of Palestinians to return to their ancestral land, and they culminated during the controversial inauguration of a new USA embassy in Jerusalem on Monday.

Israel says Hamas militants have also tried to carry out bombing and shooting attacks under the cover of the protests.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel had tallied similar numbers to Hamas', and "won't let those who call for our destruction to breach our borders and to threaten our communities".

But with the images of rifle-toting Israeli snipers facing off against seemingly unarmed protesters beamed around the world, the remarks by Hamas may do little to convince Israel's detractors, including the Palestinians. "No one would", said Haley. No casualties were reported in Sderot; there was slight damage to property. Still, several advocates argue that the majority of the protesters were peacefully demonstrating to call attention to the awful living conditions they face.

The Palestinian ambassador to the Arab League has called on member nations to intervene after what he calls this week's "Israeli massacre" in Gaza.

The status of Jerusalem is one of the thorniest obstacles to forging a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians, who with broad worldwide backing want East Jerusalem, captured by Israel in the 1967 Middle East war, as their capital.

It was the bloodiest day in the Hamas-run enclave since a 2014 war with Israel.

Hamas in a statement on Thursday signalled it could resort to its weapons in response to this week's violence, but many analysts see the possibility as unlikely for now. "How can Hamas reap the fruits if it pays such an expensive price?" said Salah Bardawil.

"This is actually what we want them to know - that we want to burn them", the man replied to the reporter. Israel and Egypt, citing security concerns, maintain a de facto blockade on Gaza which has reduced its economy to a state of collapse.

Tens of thousands have protested along Gaza's border with Israel since March 30 calling for Palestinian refugees to be able to return to their homes now inside Israel. The factions said the fasting would be taken into account but marches would continue through early June. It said explosive devices and firebombs were used, while Israeli soldiers were also shot at. Abandon the fantasy that says Israel will disappear.

Senior Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat said: "The Guatemalan government has chosen to stand on the wrong side of history, to side with violations of worldwide law and human rights, and to take a hostile step against the Palestinian people and the Arab world".
