Turkey Sends Israeli Ambassador Home, Recalls Envoy From US

Among the dead were eight children, including eight-month-old Laila Anwar Ghandour.

Ghandour's funeral was held on Tuesday morning.

Monday was the deadliest day in Gaza since the 2014 war with Israel.

Hundreds of protesters carrying Palestinian flags and wearing keffiyehs took to the streets of the Loop Tuesday evening, one day after Israeli soldiers shot and killed at least 59 Palestinians during mass protests along the Gaza border as the USA embassy in Israel moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

The trucks entered Tuesday, as medical facilities in Gaza were struggling to treat hundreds of people wounded by Israeli fire the day before.

The protests were directed at a crippling blockade imposed by Israel and Egypt after the Islamic militant group seized power in Gaza in 2007. He said there is "no justification for the killing" and that "Israel has a responsibility to calibrate it's use of force". "In response, the Hamas terror operatives opened fire at them". But this year, they have even more reasons to grieve.

Palestinian medical officials say 105 Gazans have now been killed since the start of the protests and almost 11,000 people wounded, about 3,500 of them hit by live fire.

Israeli forces can use non-lethal means prevent unauthorized crossings of borders, but global law prohibits the deliberate use of lethal force in policing situations except when necessary to stave off an immediate threat to life.

"It was a bilateral event between the USA and Israel and we were not invited", spokesman Adam Austen said in an email.

In Geneva, the United Nations human rights office condemned what it called the "appalling deadly violence" by Israeli forces.

At a meeting in Ramallah on Monday, Abbas called the new embassy "a settlement outpost". His comment followed a decision by Turkey to order Israel's ambassador to leave.

"We know that the only way forward is through direct negotiations between Palestinians and Israelis to get to a two-state solution", said Trudeau. European governments summoned Israeli ambassadors and called for an investigation; at Poland's urging, the U.N. Security Council observed a moment of silence for the victims.

"Palestinians have the right to protest, but these protests must be peaceful".

It also reaffirmed United Nations resolutions on the status of Jerusalem, saying that recent events had "no legal effect" under worldwide law. Writing on his personal Twitter account, media specialist Mureed Hammad said that the "world media has shown a different face to dealing with Palestinian blood".

Her cousin and her neighbor were killed by Israeli troops during the protest, she said.

Hamas, the U.S. and Israeli-designated terrorist organization that vows to destroy Israel and the Jewish people who live there, has accomplished a massive triumph of propaganda over the Gaza protests.

The IDF alleged some protesters threw rocks and Molotov cocktails, and burned tires.

"How many Palestinians have to die before you take action?"

Around 2,250 were also injured by either gunfire or tear gas.

Palestinians have been protesting for the past six weeks as part of the "March of Return", a demonstration calling for the right of Palestinian refugees and their descendants to return to areas that are today part of Israel.
