Ontario doctor recovering after being shot in legs during Gaza protest

Jacinda Ardern outlined her government’s stance on the US-led strikes on Syria today speaking from the Comm Games in the Gold Coast

Tarek Loubani said he was shot at his leg while providing medical facilities to all those who were protesting along the border between Gaza and Israel.

But as the dignitaries smiled on Monday, their words were being proven false at the border wall to the Gaza Strip, where the worst fighting between Israeli troops and Palestinians in four years was under way.

"We are appalled that Dr. Tarek Loubani, a Canadian citizen, is among the wounded - along with so many unarmed people, including civilians, members of the media, first responders, and children", he said.

China joined calls for restraint, especially by the Israeli side, after 58 Palestinians were killed and thousands injured by bullets and tear gas in the violence.

Trudeau added: "Reported use of excessive force and live ammunition is inexcusable".

In remarks to graduates of the Virginia Military Institute, Tillerson laments assaults on facts that he says would lead to a loss of freedom if not countered.

Loubani is an emergency physician at the London Health Sciences Centre in Ontario, Canada, according to the Toronto Star. At least 61 protestors were killed in clashes with Israeli forces. White said, noting US commanders will "continue to keep a sharp eye on the situation" in Israel and the Middle East.

Loubani says in a blog post that most paramedics in his team wore fluorescent high visibility jackets and he was wearing a hospital green top and bottom so he could be identified as medical staff.

The remarks were made by Jordan's Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi at a meeting with ambassadors of European Union countries in Amman, where he called for immediate action to support the forming of an global committee to investigate the massacre of Palestinians by Israeli forces. The South African government immediately withdrew its ambassador to Israel in protest.

Several nations, including those on the U.N. Security Council, supported a proposal for an investigation into Israel's actions on Sunday.

A senior Palestinian official on Wednesday criticized USA ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley's speech at the Security Council the day before as "a total disconnect" with the reality.
