Arab League fails to agree on United States envoy recalls

Arab League fails to agree on United States envoy recalls

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is calling for a probe into the violence on Israel's border with the Gaza Strip after a Canadian doctor was wounded while tending to injured Palestinian protesters.

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

These new needs are in addition to a pre-existing humanitarian and human rights catastrophe caused by almost 11 years of Israeli blockade on Gaza, alongside internal Palestinian political divide and a chronic energy crisis that leaves Gaza's 2 million inhabitants with power cuts of up to 22 hours per day on average, and severely disrupts the provision of essential services, he noted.

Haley added that December's decision to relocate the United States mission from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem "does not undermine the prospect of peace in any way".

- Appreciating the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud's initiative naming the 29 Arab Summit held in Saudi Arabia as the "Quds Summit" in recognition of the spiritual and religious status of the Holy City of Jerusalem, the capital of the State of Palestine.

The deadliest demonstrations came on Monday and coincided with the US moving its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem - reflecting the Trump administration's recognition of that city as the capital of Israel. Shimon Koffler Fogel - CEO of the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs (CIJA) - said Trudeau's stance "contradicts the government's long-stated position that, as a close ally and fellow liberal democracy, Israel can count on Canada's support when its security is threatened".

A poll conducted last month by the Israel Democracy Institute showed high support for the Israeli army's use of live fire against protesters in Gaza, with 83 percent of respondents saying it was appropriate. "It's disappointing that our prime minister did not condemn Hamas in his statement". "All parties to the conflict have a responsibility to ensure civilians are protected".

Israeli forces killed at least 62 Palestinians protesting near the Gaza fence on the eve of the 70th anniversary of the Nakba (Catastrophe) Day, which coincided with Washington's embassy relocation from Tel Aviv to occupied Jerusalem al-Quds.

She expressed concern at the escalation of violence in Gaza in recent days, which has resulted in the death and injury of many Palestinians.

The US allies have been put on notice that they may also suffer the consequences of the new sanctions against Iran, should they continue to trade with her. Turkey, a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally, which had been superheating its economic relations with Iran to bring the trade between the two countries from the present $9.7 billion to $30 billion, will be first to suffer from the US actions. "So for us, they're all child deaths that should have been avoided".
