South Africa Recalls Ambassador To Israel Over Gaza Deaths

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu defended his military's show of force and thanked President Donald Trump for keeping his promise to move the U.S. Embassy.

The party has also called on Israel's ambassador in South Africa to leave.

Earlier, department of worldwide relations and cooperation (Dirco) spokesperson Ndivhuwo Mabaya said the South African government had taken a decision to recall ambassador Sisa Ngombane from Israel "with immediate effect".

Ben Shapiro criticized liberal media outlets for an imbalance in covering Monday's deadly clash between Israel and Palestinians at the Israel-Gaza border.

Iran's Foreign Ministry on Monday urged Muslims to unite against U.S. relocation of embassy in Israel, the state TV reported.

In a video message played during the inauguration, Mr Trump said he remains committed to "facilitating a lasting peace agreement" between Israelis and Palestinians.

"We are rejecting once again this decision which violates global law and which is against United Nations resolutions", he said.

A resident of Ottawa for the past 19 years, she said she is fearful for her relatives in Gaza.

"It seems that anyone is liable to be shot dead".

Arab states, including Egypt and Saudi Arabia, were also among those decrying the deaths.

Zarif, after a closed-door meeting with Mogherini in Brussels, said: "My meeting with Mogherini was good and constructive". Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the U.S. still wanted to work with the Europeans on a new deal.

Iranian Foreign Ministry condemned on Tuesday the actions of the Israeli authorities against the protesting Palestinians in the Gaza Strip and called for an investigation in this regard in the International Criminal Court (ICC).

The status of Jerusalem goes to the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. "Hamas is intentionally and cynically provoking this response", White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah told reporters on Monday.

Israel blamed Hamas for the killings.

"They're not hiding the ball here", he said. "In that conflict zone, you're basically pushing people into circumstances where they are very likely to be shot at".

Monday's protest was also about the move of the United States embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Eighty-six different countries were invited to send representatives to the ceremony in Jerusalem but less than half did, which underlines the controversy surrounding the embassy move.

There had already been weeks of protests and clashes along the Gaza border, with 106 Palestinians killed by Israeli fire there since March 30.

A man rests on the sand next to bottles to be used as molotov cocktails as Palestinians prepare to demonstrate along the border with the Gaza strip, east of Jabalia.

The demonstrations along the border have intensified since late March. Black smoke from tyres set alight by demonstrators rose in the air.

Palestinians are calling for the "right of return" to territory now claimed by Israel.

Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel called Israel's actions "unacceptable violence" and said "there is a clear lack of proportionality and we are asking for an global investigation". "We will continue to act with determination to protect our sovereignty and citizens", he said.
