Israeli forces kill two Palestinians near border as Gaza buries dead

On May 14, one day before Palestinian commemorate 70 years of ongoing Nakba, or catastrophe, US and Israeli officials celebrated the opening of the USA embassy in Jerusalem as Israeli snipers shot and killed at least 61 Palestinian protesters, including eight children under 16 years old.

Ankara said that US President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and open an embassy there was "violating worldwide law and all relevant UN Resolutions".

Monday's inauguration of the new US embassy sparked the bloodiest day in four years at the Israel-Gaza border as Israeli forces killed more than 50 Palestinians.

Haley noted President Donald Trump said the embassy's location had no bearing on resolving contested borders or Jerusalem's holy sites.

For those who have a problem with the United States operating its embassy in Israel from Jerusalem, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has a message, "Take it up with God, He did this". "It's actually the only embassy in Jerusalem‚ all other embassies are in Tel Aviv‚" he said.

Meanwhile, the Palestinian ambassador to the United Nations has slammed the killing of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip as war crimes.

"(Canada) should stand with the worldwide community and wider expert opinion that the USA move is unnecessary, counterproductive, and toxic", said Momani.

"This bloodbath is the continuation of the Israeli army's policy during the last seven weeks: shooting with live ammunition at demonstrators, on the assumption that anyone approaching the separation fence is a legitimate target", Marie-Elisabeth Ingres, the group's representative in Gaza, said in a statement.

"Such violence is destructive to peace efforts and we call on all sides to show restraint", she said.

Haley was in sync with her Israeli counterpart, Danny Danon, who said Hamas, the Palestinian militant political faction that governs Gaza, had incited its people to be shot down.

Prime Minister Binali Yildirim earlier confirmed that Turkey had called the OIC summit, saying it would be followed by a giant rally in support of the Palestinians.

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.

It also complicates the search for a lasting solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, said the chairperson in a statement.

Trump has stood firm in his position and called Monday a "big day for Israel" on Twitter. French president Emmanuel Macron also condemned the killings.

"No country in this chamber would act with more restraint than Israel has", she added.

The UN is expected to hold an emergency meeting on the escalating violence Tuesday.
