"We are a nation that deserves a land to live on, and they're eating it up", she said.

The Palestine Liberation Organization's top envoy in the U.S., Husam Zomlot, was recalled from Washington on Tuesday in a move protesting the opening of the America's embassy to Israel in Jerusalem.

U.S. officials insist the administration remains committed to restarting the stalled Israeli-Palestinian peace process. More than 2,700 Palestinians were injured, the ministry said.

Zomlot returned to D.C. from the Palestinian territories earlier this year even as Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said he would not accept any peace plan proposed by the US following President TrumpDonald John TrumpAvenatti defends right to release Cohen's financial info Pruitt's 24/7 security requested over fears of Trump policy backlash Senate GOP anger over McCain insult grows MORE's announcement that he would be recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

"Most of the people [from terror groups] killed belonged to the Hamas terror group, and some to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad", an IDF spokesperson said, according to The Times of Israel.

"We started to line up altogether and then walk forward steps together".

In fact, Israel can ill afford to escalate, given the low-grade war it is already fighting with Iran in Syria. "In order to drive them back from the fence, the troops used riot dispersal means. I went to the hospital and I knew she was dead".

German Chancellor Angela Merkel echoed May, stating she was sympathetic to Israel's security needs but expressed concerns about the "escalation of violence" during a phone call with Netanyahu on Tuesday, according to her spokesman, Steffen Seibert. They carried her tiny body, wrapped in a Palestinian flag. Gunshots were fired in the air.


The U.N.'s Middle East envoy said there was no justifying the killings of more than 50 Palestinians by Israeli fire at the Gaza border, and several Security Council members called for an independent investigation, but the council had no unified message Tuesday as the US said Israel had acted with "restraint".

"This step represents a significant bias against the historical, permanent rights of the Palestinian people in Jerusalem", an official statement said.

U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres also proposed an investigation, after a deadly protest in Gaza in March. Worldwide condemnation followed recent bloodshed at the border fence, when Israeli fire killed 60 Palestinians, according to the Gaza health ministry.

The prime minister urged Israel to "show restraint" after soldiers shot dead two more Palestinians near the border on Tuesday.

Shapiro, who is now at the Institute for National Security Studies in Israel, said that while some United States allies like Israel and Saudi Arabia have celebrated the pullout, the reaction "will soon be followed by some degree of concern about whether the administration is sufficiently focused, prepared, staffed and able to devote the necessary attention when it's also managing another major foreign policy challenge in North Korea at the same time". "I suggest he not preach morality to us".

Palestinian medics and protesters evacuate a wounded youth during a protest at the Gaza Strip's border with Israel, east of Khan Younis, Gaza Strip, Monday, May 14, 2018. "No one would. No country in this chamber would act with more restraint than Israel has". He also stated that the US embassy was a "new settlement" in Jerusalem, as reported by Israeli daily Haaretz.

"Rather, the violence comes from those who reject the existence of the state of Israel in any location", Haley said.

Kuwait, which requested Tuesday's meeting, had tried to get council members to sign on Monday to a statement that would have demanded that all countries comply with a decades-old Security Council resolution that called on them not to have embassies in contested Jerusalem.
