Emergency UN General Assembly meeting on Gaza called for Wednesday

Emergency UN General Assembly meeting on Gaza called for Wednesday

In a letter to Argentinian Ambassador Faustino Garcia, Jabareen wrote: "While Israel has long sought global recognition and acceptance of Jerusalem as its capital, the recognition should not be forthcoming".

The friendly soccer match between Argentina's and Israel's national soccer teams scheduled in Jerusalem was cancelled, after Argentine players received greater threats than those previously made by ISIS, the Argentine Foreign Minister said during an interview with Radio Mitre, La Agencia Judia de Noticias reported Wednesday (Spanish link). -AFP Israeli soldiers take position during clashes with Palestinian protesters following a weekly demonstration against the expropriation of Palestinian land by Israel in the village of Kfar Qaddum, near Nablus in the occupied West Bank. Israel was established in the wake of the Holocaust, marks an annual remembrance day for the 6 million Jews killed by the Nazis and is home to the world's largest population of Holocaust survivors. The Palestinian FA had also threatened Argentina's bid to host the FIFA World Cup 2030 over the soccer match in Israel.

"Although, as a Palestinian people, we have taken a united national decision to demonstrate peacefully against the occupation and against the siege, Israeli propaganda, with the support of some major worldwide media outlets, talks about "Palestinian violence", he wrote. "Health and common sense come first".

"We want our right of return, we want our right to our country, we want the right to Jerusalem", a young protester, his face wrapped in a kuffiyeh, told Middle East Eye on Friday.

Argentina open their Group D campaign in Russian Federation against Iceland on June 16. "All they care about is money, not the players".

It is unclear whether Argentina will play another warm-up, or arrive in Moscow ahead of schedule.

"The game was canceled for one reason only: threats to the life of the star Messi", Miri Regev said Wednesday night at a press conference in Tel Aviv, referencing Argentine team captain Lionel Messi.

The cancellation was seen as a victory for the global Palestinian anti-Israel boycott campaign.

But after intense Palestinian protests, Argentina announced its team would not attend the event. Israel captured east Jerusalem in the 1967 Mideast war and annexed the area in a move that is not internationally recognised. The Palestinians claim east Jerusalem as the capital of a future state.

In the capitals of Iran and Iraq, thousands of Muslims marked Jerusalem Day with protests, with some chanting "Death to Israel" or burning Israeli flags and effigies of President Donald Trump.

According to Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman, of the more than 600 kites launched from Gaza so far, around 400 kites have been intercepted.

Since the beginning of the protests along the fence at the Gaza-Israel border on March 30, at least two Palestinian journalists were killed and dozens more were wounded by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) despite wearing the necessary marked vests.
