Turkey Sends Israeli Ambassador Home, Recalls Envoy From US

Turkey Sends Israeli Ambassador Home, Recalls Envoy From US

Recognizing this reality makes peace more achievable, not less.

The president of Turkey claimed that Hamas is not a terrorist organization in a Tuesday tweet directed at Israel's prime minister, calling Hamas's enemies "oppressors".

The White House on Monday blamed the Palestinian militant group Hamas for deadly violence on Israel's border with Gaza where Israeli troops fatally shot dozens of Palestinian protesters.

Protests began after the United States embassy was officially opened in Jerusalem on Monday (local time).

According to the chairperson, such move, compromises the search for a lasting solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. I witnessed occupation as a five-year-old child. He also accused the Islamist movement Hamas of taking "the people of Gaza hostage".

But during a UN Security Council meeting, United States ambassador Nikki Haley said: "No country in this chamber would act with more restraint than Israel has". She walked out of the room when the Palestinian delegation spoke.

"Hamas violence does not justify Israel firing on unarmed protesters", Sanders said. 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".

Palestinians, who view the eastern part of Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state, were demonstrating against the opening of the new U.S. Embassy.

Qawasmi also stressed that the people of Palestine will never give up their land, and that Jerusalem is Palestinian, while any other scenario is utterly rejected. It's been the capital. It was the deadliest day for Gaza in years and came amid celebrations of a United States mission in Jerusalem being officially converted into an embassy.

However, I suspect Turkey's move is related to the fact that its current head, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, wants to build Ottoman Empire v 2.0.

KELEMEN: Ambassador Haley was also defending the move.

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.

Ms Haley said the opening of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem "does not undermine prospects for peace in any way".

The killings sparked widespread outrage from the worldwide community and human rights organisations, while South Africa and a myriad local organisations also condemned the actions by Israel.

He called on Israel to use force proportionally and avoid using deadly force except as a last resort, a message echoed by the council's European members.

Mr Varadkar condemned the Israeli actions and the border yesterday.
