Protesters in Halifax call on Canada to condemn killing of Palestinians

After ambassadors joined in a rare moment of silence for those killed, Haley said Israel was facing Hamas extremists who incited people who lobbed flaming objects toward the Israeli side of the border fence and urged protest marchers to breach it.

Senate on Tuesday strongly condemned the atrocities committed by Israeli occupied forces against the innocent and defenceless people of Palestine and also rejected the moving of American Embassy to Jerusalem by the United States of America (USA).

Monday's violence on the border, which took place as the United States opened its new embassy in Jerusalem, was the bloodiest for Palestinians since the 2014 Gaza conflict.

"But it's the global community who can help".

Worldwide condemnation of the killing by Israeli security forces of 60 Palestinians in Gaza intensified yesterday, though the United States praised the "restraint" shown by Israel.

Israel has a responsibility to calibrate its use of force, to not use lethal forces, except as a last resort under imminent threat of death or serious injury, he said. An "independent and transparent investigation" was necessary, including on Israel's use of live fire in such situations and attacks on that country's defense forces. We will see this reality. "No country in this chamber would act with more restraint than Israel has".

Palestinians view East Jerusalem, captured by Israel in a 1967 war, as the capital of a future independent state and see the USA move as backing Israel's desire to cement its rule over the whole city.

Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan tweeted that Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu "has the blood of Palestinians on his hands". Hamas took control of Gaza in 2006 following elections that ultimately split the Palestinian territories politically and ideologically, with the left-wing Fatah retaining its authority in the West Bank.

A Foreign Office spokesperson, in a statement, said the move represents violation of worldwide law and several United Nations Security Council resolutions, in particular resolutions No. 476 and 478.

Some funerals were held in the Israeli-blockaded Gaza Strip yesterday, while others took place today.

Ankara said that US President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and open an embassy there was "violating worldwide law and all relevant UN Resolutions". Israel regards all of Jerusalem, including the eastern sector it captured in the 1967 Middle East war and annexed in a move that is not recognised internationally, as its "eternal and indivisible capital".

Jerusalem's status is perhaps the thorniest issue in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

There have been demonstrations against Israel in Istanbul and in the capital Ankara.
