Maliki also said members of the Arab League, whose foreign ministers gathered in Cairo on Thursday for an extraordinary meeting to discuss the issue, should summon US ambassadors "to remind them of the Arab rejection of the USA embassy's transfer to Jerusalem".

It spotlighted the Higher National Commission for the Great March of Return calling on Palestinians to partake in today's protests, dubbed "Friday of Honoring the Martyrs", and affirming the peaceful nature of the protests.

He urged the Islamic countries "to take stance against these crimes".

As protests die down on the Israel-Gaza border where dozens of Palestinians were killed by Israeli gunfire this week, Reuters' Emily Wither speaks to some of the two million people facing crippling unemployment and blockade in the narrow strip.

"We must strive for a future where Israel and Palestine thrive as states in which all are equally respected, and where civil society is able to play its constructive role", said Mohammed.

Israeli and Canadian officials told The Globe and Mail that Mr. Netanyahu said he would not co-operate with an worldwide investigation and argued Israel was merely defending its territory. No injuries was reported on either side.

The Israeli Defense Forces said fighter jets struck at four Hamas targets in northern Gaza overnight, including "a weapons production facility".


Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) on Thursday blasted the media's anti-Israel bias in the wake of recent violent riots at the Gaza-Israel border organized by the terrorist group Hamas.

The Arab foreign ministers' meeting in Cairo came after Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El Sisi on Wednesday said his government was communicating with both sides "so that this bloodshed would stop".

Though, Pentagon on Thursday justified Israeli violence against Palestinians.

He stressed that the US decision to transfer the US Embassy to Jerusalem has complicated the situation and put obstacles to the peace process as the decision is a complete prejudice against the historic and permanent rights of the Palestinian people in Jerusalem.

My first words are to deplore the tragic loss of lives and suffering in Gaza and to express my deep sadness and condolences to the Palestinian people.

Israel accuses Hamas, with whom it has fought three wars since 2008, of seeking to use the demonstrations as cover for violence.

The dailies said that an Israeli court rejected a request to delay the expulsion of Human Rights Watch's country Israel and Palestine director Omar Shakir.
