Israeli Intelligence Minister: Hamas Restored Calm to Gaza After Warnings From Egypt

People shout slogans during a protest outside the former U.S. embassy in Tehran Iran

The largest demonstrations coincided with the move of the United States embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on Monday, which saw Israeli forces kill some 60 Palestinians.

"The Community has followed with increasing alarm the mounting toll of fatalities and injured among the demonstrators".

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 U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, which overturned decades of American foreign policy.

While emphasizing the Kingdom's rejection of the USA decision to move its embassy to Jerusalem, he said that this step represents a significant bias against the historical and permanent rights of the Palestinian people in Jerusalem. "For many, especially those who lost a loved one, who will now suffer a permanent disability or who will need intensive rehabilitation, the impacts of recent violence will be felt for months and years to come".

The Arab League on Thursday called for an global investigation into Israel's killing of dozens of protesters on the Gaza border as its foreign ministers met in Cairo to discuss their response.

Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu posted a video on Facebook Thursday, saying Palestinians who breached the Gaza security fence on Monday were threatening to slaughter Jews.


Over the past seven weeks, thousands of Palestinians living in Hamas-controlled Gaza have gathered at the Gaza border for what organizers call the "March of Return", and clashed with Israeli soldiers.

Avi Benlolo - CEO of the Friends of the Simon Wiesenthal Center - said that "Canada should steadfastly condemn Hamas for inciting violence and for attempting to enter a sovereign nation to carry out terrorism..."

Before Monday's protest, Doctors Without Borders (MSF) in Gaza said its medical facilities were "completely overwhelmed and will soon be unable to manage additional wounded", and warned the health system was "on the verge of collapse".

Scores of Gazans have been killed during the protests by Israeli soldiers, and from other means, in a response Israel's leaders describe as self-defense "to protect our sovereignty and our citizens".

"On the left, people think even if Israel has the right to defend its border, and even if the strong reaction by the military was in a way justified, they shouldn't have used the kind of ammunition that they used against the people", she said.
