Arab League demands probe into Israeli crimes

Arab League demands probe into Israeli crimes

"O Jews!" they shout.

"Negotiations with our brothers in Sudan and Ethiopia will require effort and time from [all sides] so we can come to the terms and reach an understanding that allows us to maintain our share (of the Nile's water) and allow them to benefit from the dam for the development that they seek".

"They are not defending us from some civilian demonstrations", he wrote.

In a television interview circulated by Israeli government social media accounts, Hamas' Salah Bardawil says: "The latest round [Monday and Tuesday], 62 people were killed". He blames Hamas for the suffering of its people.

Netanyahu commented on Bardawil's statement, saying "Well, how about senior Hamas official Salah Bardawil?"

He also suggested that members of the Arab League summon U.S. ambassadors "to remind them of the Arab rejection" of the United States move, which was made despite near universal consensus that the final status of the city should be decided in a final peace settlement between the Palestinians and Israel. I agree with him.

Minister of Foreign Affairs Adel Al-Jubeir reiterated on Thursday that the Palestinian cause is Saudi Arabia's first cause as it is the first cause of Arabs and that the Kingdom will not hesitate to support the Palestinians in restoring their legitimate rights.

Israel's embassy in New Zealand has officially taken objection to Jacinda Ardern's description of this week's Gaza conflict in which 60 Palestinians were killed as "one-sided".

Hamas and the Palestinian resistance factions in the Gaza Strip are trying to keep the marches peaceful, and if circumstances require a military option, that would happen later, he pledged.

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.

Hamas denied the claim, although Hamas leader Yehya Sinwar told Al Jazeera television that Egypt had expressed interest in improving the conditions in Gaza and avoiding further bloodshed on the border. He said that the aim of the riots is to, quote, "tear down their border and tear out their hearts".

We thank our Western Hemisphere partner for joining us in recognizing Israel's capital and encourage additional moves.

On Wednesday, Pakistan's Ambassador to the United Nations Maleeha Lodhi on Wednesday called for an independent inquiry into Israeli "state terrorism" in Gaza.

"People on the right think that Israel has successfully defended its border against people who tried to cross the border and actually interfere with its sovereignty", she said.

Many critics have called it an excessive use of force and a Google search reveals wide-ranging criticism of Israel for its actions.
