Israeli troops kill 2 and injure hundreds, Palestinians say

In addition to 60 Palestinians killed by Israeli troops on Monday - when the United States opened its Embassy in Jerusalem - more than 1,700 received wounds needing hospital treatment, Gaza medics said. "He had assured Palestine President Mahmoud Abbas that India was committed to the Palestinian people's interests and hoped for return of peace in this region".

At a border protest encampment east of Gaza City, Palestinian factions, including Hamas and Islamic Jihad, urged people to take part in mass rallies on Friday.

While asserting that "we regret the loss of life; we regret the loss of all life", Nauert also reiterated the White House position: "Israel has a right to defend itself". The US president said that the Iranians were "finally getting wise as to how their money and wealth is being stolen and squandered on terrorism".

He called on Israel to use force proportionally and avoid using deadly force except as a last resort, a message echoed by the council's European members.

But human rights groups say the identity of slain protesters, including a possible affiliation to a militant group, is irrelevant if they were unarmed and did not pose an immediate threat to the lives of soldiers when they were shot.

"Jewish Voice for Peace Western Mass calls on our government, and our representatives in Congress, to live up to US commitments to protect human rights and warn Israel to obey global law and refrain from a violent response", the press release reads. "The death toll alone warrants such a comprehensive inquiry", British Ambassador Karen Pierce said. These countries also demanded an worldwide investigation.

Condemning the United States" move shifting its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, the protesters chanted slogans such as "Israel is unacceptable", "Israel's aggression is unacceptable" and "US embassy in Jerusalem is unacceptable'.

Now the U.S.is an unlikely facilitator for peace.

In a press conference following their meeting, Mrs May said the situation in Gaza and the West Bank was "troubling". He didn't immediately give details of his proposal.

Angered by the US Embassy move and the Gaza bloodshed, Turkey expelled Israel's ambassador and consul to Istanbul, Ankara said on Wednesday.

The demonstration in Gaza Monday culminated a weekslong Palestinian campaign against a blockade imposed by Israel and Egypt after Hamas seized control of Gaza in 2007.

Israeli Intelligence Minister Israel Katz said an Egyptian intelligence chief, whom he did not name, warned Haniyeh that Cairo "knows and has proof" that Hamas was funding the protests and sending people to the border fence to serve "as living ammunition, women and children instead of shells and rockets".

Protests and sporadic incidents flared again Tuesday on the Gaza border, though they were far fewer in number than the previous day, with two Palestinians killed by Israeli fire, Gaza's health ministry said.
