Percent of Israeli Jews Support Trump's Jerusalem Embassy Move

People cheer as Hamas leader Ismail Haniya speaks to protesters at the border fence with Israel in Gaza City on Tuesday, a day after Israeli soldiers killed 60 Palestinians and wounded an estimated 2,700.

Ankara has reacted with fury to the killing of at least 61 Palestinians in Gaza on the same day as the United States formally moved its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv in defiance of worldwide outrage.

Palestinians had gathered in their tens of thousands to denounce the move by the U.S. to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas withdrew his top representative to the United States Tuesday, the foreign ministry announced, a day after the U.S. moved its Israeli embassy to Jerusalem.

The United States has blocked the adoption of a Security Council statement that would have called for an independent probe into the violence, diplomats said.

Kuwaiti ambassador Mansour al-Otaibi said the draft would be circulated "most probably tomorrow".

It also complicates the search for a lasting solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, said the chairperson in a statement.

"We call for a de-escalation of tensions and a return to direct negotiations", Adam Austen, Freeland's press secretary, told iPolitics Monday.




"It is very, very tragic that they are celebrating an illegal action while Israel is killing and injuring thousands of Palestinian civilians. In fact, the records of several countries here today suggest they would be much less restrained".

Haley noted President Donald Trump said the embassy's location had no bearing on resolving contested borders or Jerusalem's holy sites.

"Such a motivation - the destruction of a United Nations member state - is so illegitimate as to not be worth our time in the security council, other than the time it takes to denounce it", she continued.

"Yesterday in Israel all day, the TV news just showed a split screen: Half of it was from the shootings in Gaza, and the number of casualties was increasing by the minute".

Tensions boiled over between Palestinian protestors and Israeli troops Monday, when Israeli forces killed 58 Palestinians protestors and injured 2400.

Nickolay Mladenov, the United Nations special coordinator for the Middle East peace process, briefed the Security Council by video link from Jerusalem.

"The blockade of Gaza is inhumane and must end", he added.

"Hamas has committed war crimes not only against Israeli civilians but also against its own people - turning them into human shields for their own cynical gain". Its ambassador urged the Security Council to condemn the faction.
