Senate condemns Israeli atrocities, shifting of U.S. embassy to Jerusalem

In a statement, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) accused the Palestinian militant group Hamas, which controls Gaza, of "leading a terrorist operation" and inciting the protesters to conduct what Israel described as terror attacks. Haley said. "No one would". "No country in this chamber would act with more restraint than Israel has".

The clashes took place as the new USA embassy was inaugurated in Jerusalem.

"Israel has a responsibility to calibrate its use of force, to not use lethal force, except as a last resort, under imminent threat of death or serious injury", he said.

Protesters, led by Helmi Alfarra, chanted slogans like, "Brick by brick, wall by wall, occupation has to fall", "Gaza Gaza don't you cry, Palestine will never die", and "Donald Trump, you will see, Palestine will be free".

Council members were also divided over whether the installation of a US embassy in Jerusalem on Monday - the fulfillment of a campaign promise of President Donald Trump - helped fuel the violence. "It has become part of the problem, not part of the solution".

"Our position on the status of Jerusalem and moving the American embassy is well known, " she said.

He said that as an occupying power Israel was required under the Geneva Convention to provide protection for Palestinian civilians "but they failed to do that so this is why we want the council to do something about that". "It's actually the only embassy in Jerusalem‚ all other embassies are in Tel Aviv‚" he said.

"Let's remember that the Hamas terrorist organization has been inciting violence for years, long before the United States made a decision to move our embassy", Haley said. "People who recognise the humanity in others do not author or perpetrate massacres‚" the archbishop said in a statement on Tuesday.

Some of the protests this week in cities like Washington, D.C. and Cape Town, South Africa, had initially been planned over the controversial relocation of the U.S. Embassy or to mark the 70th anniversary of Nakba on Tuesday.

Perhaps those outlets spreading these false facts should be required to register as a foreign agent, as they are not working for American and her allies. "It reflects our sovereign right to decide the location of our embassy".

There have been demonstrations against Israel in Istanbul and in the capital Ankara.

According to Japan Today, Yoshihide Suga said that "Japan is concerned that the move could make peace process in the Middle East even more hard or escalate tension in all of the Middle East".

Turkey's envoys in Israel and the USA were recalled for consultations, the official Anadolu news agency reported late Monday, citing Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag.

We, too, cautioned past year that moving the embassy, though mainly symbolic, would likely provoke Palestinian ire.
