Guatemala opens new embassy in Jerusalem following US lead

Guatemala opens new embassy in Jerusalem following US lead

Egypt, a longstanding mediator in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, has condemned the deaths of Palestinians but avoided direct criticism of the United States over its embassy move. "Without question there should be an independent investigation when the lives of so many are lost". World Health Organization (WHO) spokesman Tarik Jasarevic said Israel's long-lasting blockade of the Gaza Strip has created chronic shortages for Palestinian health facilities.

CARICOM today condemned the use of force by the Israel Defence Force firing on largely unarmed Palestinians protesting along the Gaza-Israel border.

Israel says it is defending its border and accuses Hamas of trying to carry out attacks under the cover of the protests.

Following the first shots fired at Israeli soldiers from northern Gaza, troops "targeted a military post belonging to the Hamas terror organisation with tank fire", the army said in a statement.

The meeting comes after Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi on Wednesday said Cairo was in communication with both sides "so that this bloodshed would stop".

On the day the United States inaugurated its own embassy in Jerusalem, Israeli gunfire killed 60 Palestinians during the Gaza border protests.

Hamas leader in Gaza Yehya Sinwar denied that Egypt put pressure on Hamas to end theprotests and said that instead, Haniyeh discussed what Cairo could do to ease hardship in Gaza. "Take his word for it".

To hear the mainstream media (MSM) tell it, Israel gunned down peaceful demonstrators this week who were merely angry over moving the us embassy to Jerusalem, and it's all Donald Trump's fault. The State Department said Tuesday the draft "was too one-sided" and unacceptable to the US because it did not mention Hamas' incitement of violence along the Gaza border.

Speaking at a reception with Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales, Netanyahu said Israel had recorded "similar numbers" to those mentioned by Bardawil.

The violence earlier this week coincided with the dedication ceremony of the US Embassy in Jerusalem.

But the organizers of the Hamas-led border marches rejected two of the trucks, which had come from Israel, despite widespread shortages of key supplies.

Senior Palestinian official Saeb Erekat lashed out at Guatemala, saying its government had "chosen to stand on the wrong side of history".

The status of Jerusalem is one of the key issues concerning the Israel-Palestine conflict. There are 85 other countries, including Canada, that have diplomatic relations with Israel and not one of them has an embassy in Jerusalem. Especially at the 5:00 min mark, she really waxes inaccurately about so much of Israel's history, and then claims, "Donald Trump recognized history, he, like king Cyrus before him, fulfilled the biblical prophecy of the gods worshipped by Jews, Christians, and yes Muslims, that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish state, and the Jewish people finally deserve a righteous free and sovereign Israel".
