Lavrov slams statements about kids killed in Gaza being terrorists as outrageous

Lavrov slams statements about kids killed in Gaza being terrorists as outrageous

The official, Salah Bardawil, told the private Palestinian news outlet Baladna TV that 50 of the protesters killed in Monday's violence were members, with the others being "from the people". It's a violation of human rights to go and occupy the land of Palestinians.

Monday's protests in Gaza had coincided with Israel's 70th anniversary - an event Palestinians refer to as Nakba or the Catastrophe - and the relocation of the U.S. Embassy to Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Israel has said its troops were defending its border and accused Hamas militants of trying to attack under the cover of the protest.

The U.N. Security Council held a special session that began with a moment of silence for the Palestinians who were killed. "This is a blasphemous statement", Lavrov said.

He supports an independent global investigation of events at the Gaza border yesterday. "The death toll alone warrants such a comprehensive inquiry", British Ambassador Karen Pierce said.

"We will also act through the United Nations and we have given our support to the United Nations secretary general in his call for an independent investigation in to this matter".

At least 60 people lost their lives in what became the deadliest day in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict since 2014.

Israel rejects any right of return, fearing that it would deprive the state of its Jewish majority.

The ministry of foreign Affairs, in a statement, on Thursday, May 17, expressed the federal government's concern over the killings.

The U.S. blocked it.

Israel has faced global criticism over its use of live fire against demonstrators.

"The Guatemalan government has chosen to stand on the wrong side of history, to side with violations of global law and human rights, and to take a hostile step against the Palestinian people and the Arab world", he wrote in a statement. He didn't immediately give details of his proposal.

Israel has been buoyed by the new Jerusalem missions, which have infuriated the Palestinians. For the past six weeks, Palestinians have been holding Gaza border demonstrations for the return of Palestinian refugees to areas that are now part of Israel. "There is far too little discussion in the Security Council on Iran's destabilizing presence in Syria, its promotion of violence in Yemen, its support for terrorism in Gaza, and its unsafe and illegal weapons buildup in Lebanon".

The high death toll from Israeli fire has led to worldwide condemnations of Israel and calls for an independent investigation.

Turkey expelled Israel's ambassador and consul general, and several European countries summoned Israeli ambassadors to their foreign ministries for questioning and called for an global investigation.

ANC Eastern Cape provincial secretary Lulama Ngcukayitobi labelled the Gaza attack barbaric and a violation of global law. He urged Israelis "to understand that the reactions of Palestinians over this issue are legitimate". "Why are you paralyzed?" Under such circumstances, with all hope of peace talks gone, why wouldn't young men rush the security fence?
