Ashrawi terms Gaza killings a massacre

Israel arrests 15 Palestinians in West Bank raids Arab League fails to agree on US envoy recalls

On the day of the embassy move, Israeli forces killed 59 Palestinians and wounded hundreds in Gaza, drawing widespread global condemnation, accusations of using disproportionate force and calls for independent investigations.

Maliki also said members of the Arab League, whose foreign ministers gathered in Cairo on Thursday for an extraordinary meeting to discuss the issue, should summon US ambassadors "to remind them of the Arab rejection of the USA embassy's transfer to Jerusalem".

A large number of Palestinians gathered to protest on the Gaza Strip's eastern border to commemorate the Nakba anniversary and protest the relocation of the USA embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, which overturned decades of American foreign policy.

RAMALLAH, West Bank - The aftershocks of the U.S. Embassy move to Jerusalem and bloodshed on the Gaza border are shaking up the region, including the relationship between Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and his former negotiating partners, Israel and the U.S.

Speaking during the opening of the session, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel bin Ahmed al-Jubeir, who chairs the meeting, said the US decision to move the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem defies the global legitimacy and ignores the rights of the Palestinian people.

In modern times, Israel continues to battle its Arab neighbors, those living on lands claimed by Palestine, and the judgment of the rest of the world.

"This year we celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights", she said, noting that the principles and standards enshrined in the Universal Declaration should guide the search for a durable solution to the question of Palestine, a solution that must be based on worldwide law, the legitimate aspirations of Palestinians and Israelis, as well as dialogue for reconciliation and for accountability.

The move follows Monday's killing of 60 unarmed Palestinian protestors in the Gaza strip, which has drawn widespread condemnation.

On Wednesday, a top Hamas official said that fifty members of the group were among sixty killed in Monday's clashes with Israeli troops along the Gaza-Israel border.

Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki called on the league members to recall their ambassadors to the US.

"The Israeli army struck targets belonging to Hamas in the northern Gaza Strip, including terrorist infrastructure and weapons-making facilities", the military said in a statement. No injuries was reported on either side.

She further expressed the verdict of Pakistan on this recent event, "Pakistan condemns the massacre of Palestinians and calls on the United Nations to conduct an independent investigation into the tactics used by Israeli forces". "War incites war, violence incites violence".

It said the raids were in response to the "heavy machine gun fire that targeted the city of Sderot and the numerous shooting attacks that targeted IDF soldiers throughout the day".

Hamas denies Israeli accusations of orchestrating the demonstrations, saying it supports them but that they were organised independently.
