Guatemala opens embassy in Jerusalem, two days after United States move

Guatemala opens embassy in Jerusalem, two days after United States move

"We see all too often that journalists continue to pursue this important work", Nauert said, but her tone changed drastically when the name of Yaser Murtaja, a Palestinian journalist who was shot dead by an Israeli sniper during Gaza protests despite wearing a press jacket, was mentioned.

Another three militants were killed while laying an explosive device in the south, the army said.

The Palestinians, who seek east Jerusalem as capital of their hoped-for state and vehemently oppose the US move, recalled their ambassadors to four European countries that had supported it.

At a border protest encampment east of Gaza City, Palestinian factions, including Hamas and Islamic Jihad, urged people to take part in mass rallies on Friday.

At Wednesday's ceremony, Morales said his country was bringing a message of "love, peace and fraternity" to Israel.

Israeli Intelligence Minister Israel Katz said an Egyptian intelligence chief, whom he did not name, warned Mr Haniyeh that Cairo "knows and has proof" that Hamas was funding the protests and sending people to the border fence to serve "as living ammunition, women and children instead of shells and rockets".

For those seeking the truth of the situation along the Gaza border, the leaders of Hamas, which rules the coastal enclave, are only too happy to oblige.

Turkey this week announced the removal of several of its ambassadors from Israel and the United States following the inauguration of the new U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem and the deaths in Gaza. President Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner attended the event, where they defended the administration's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move the embassy from Tel Aviv.

Paraguay is expected to follow the U.S and Guatemala's lead, and plans to relocate their embassy to Jerusalem in the coming weeks.

However, no documents were taken, according to Najib's lawyer Harpal Singh Grewal. Mahathir has barred Najib from leaving the country pending investigations.

"We call for a credible global investigation into the crimes committed by the occupation", Arab League chief Ahmed Abul Gheit said at an extraordinary meeting of Arab foreign ministers in Cairo on Thursday to discuss the violence. At least 13 USA senators signed a letter calling on Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to address the growing humanitarian crisis in Gaza.

He also referred to the crimes committed by Israel against unarmed Palestinians and the importance of securing worldwide protection for the Palestinians. He didn't immediately give details of his proposal.

The announcement by Erdogan was made during a speech in London just hours after the U.S. Embassy's inauguration.

A relative of Palestinian Ahmed al-Rantisi, killed during a protest at the Israel-Gaza border, is consoled at a hospital in the northern Gaza Strip on May 14, 2018.

Weeks of protests and clashes along the border may be reaching an end as Ramadan begins, but the death toll has led to global condemnations of Israel and calls for an independent investigation. Nakba, Arabic for catastrophe, is a term used for the flight and expulsion of an estimated 700,000 Palestinians upon Israel's creation.

Leading the charge was Turkey, which on Tuesday expelled Israel's ambassador and consul.

However, when it comes to protests in other countries, especially those where the authorities refuse to obey the American dictate, Washington always seems to show much greater concern for the rights of those taking to the streets in anger. "Why are you paralyzed?"

Israeli UN Ambassador Danny Danon called this a Palestinian cycle of death.
