President Rivlin calls for restraint in the wake of Israel-Turkey row

Israel has sought to fend off international criticism over Monday's violence with the United States strongly backing its close ally and blaming the deaths on Hamas PE protesters join rage against Israel

Turkey has been one of the most vocal critics of Israel's response to the Gaza protests over the US Embassy move to Jerusalem, recalling its ambassadors from Tel Aviv and Washington and calling for an emergency meeting of Islamic nations on Friday.

The Trump administration's close ties with Israel mean that the Palestinians shouldn't hold out for condemnation of IDF brutality or American support.

60 Palestinians, triggering a wave of global condemnation.

Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales attended the opening Wednesday morning of the embassy in the technology park of southern Jerusalem's Malkha neighborhood.

As the council met Tuesday, U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley laid blame for Monday's violence on the Hamas extremists who rule Gaza and insisted it had nothing to do with the opening of a U.S. embassy in contested Jerusalem, a move that infuriated Palestinians.

The European Union objected to the embassy move.

"We are very disappointed at African countries which had celebrated the declaration of Jerusalem as the official capital city of Israel by the USA". "The government and the people of Pakistan would continue supporting their Palestinian brethren and present their case at every forum", the statement said quoting the prime minister. There is no plausible peace agreement under which Jerusalem would no longer remain the capital of Israel.

■ GUATEMALA has followed the lead of the U.S. and moved its embassy to Jerusalem.

Young, however, believes the USA made the right move in the move to Jerusalem.

Bardawil did not say whether the 50 were fighters from Hamas's armed wing, or whether they were just regular members. You were always among the first.

The move is also seen by some as a gesture to elicit U.S. support at a time when Morales stands accused by Guatemalan prosecutors of accepting illegal campaign contributions.

Guatemala joins the USA in moving its Israeli embassy to Jerusalem
Israel captured East Jerusalem in the 1967 Mideast war and later annexed it in a move not recognized internationally. Morales said Guatemala was sending a message of "love, peace and fraternity" to Israel amid praise from Netanyahu.


Dubbed the March of Return, the protests were launched on 30 March to demand Palestinian access to family lands or homes lost to Israel during its founding in a 1948 war.

"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", he wrote in a statement.

Israel disputes this. The army said 14 of those killed on Monday were shot while firing on Israeli troops or trying to blow up the fence.

The admission came one day after Björn Stritzel, a reporter for the German tabloid BILD, tweeted so-called "martyrdom pictures" of Hamas militants killed in the violence.

Another Hamas official did not confirm the number, but said those participating were demonstrating peacefully. The full interview is scheduled to air Tuesday evening.

The death toll led to worldwide condemnations of Israel and calls for an independent investigation. It also triggered a diplomatic backlash against Israel.

Weeks of mass protests and bloodshed along the border may now be reaching a lull as Ramadan begins. While some Palestinian protesters did try to breach the fence separating Gaza from Israel during Monday's protest, human rights monitors on the ground are adamant that Israel's use of live ammunition was not justified.

"The Israeli ambassador was told that our envoy to Israel was called back for consultations, and was informed that it would be appropriate for him to go back to his country for some time", a Turkish Foreign Ministry source said.

At the same time, Israel has found other nations following the USA lead and rallying to its defense.

Speaking at the event, which did not have open media coverage, Netanyahu said it was not a coincidence that Guatemala was the second country to open its embassy in Jerusalem, after the United States. Romania, the Czech Republic and Honduras have said they are considering doing the same.

"No country in this chamber would act with more restraint than Israel has", she said.
