Declaration of Independence on May 14, 1948.
"We call for the intensification of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions [BDS Movement] against the apartheid Israeli regime". By late afternoon, five minors were included in the 59 Palestinians who were killed in the mass protests, and more than 1,300 were wounded by gunfire. Israeli officials dispute those numbers.
The goal, he said, was to invade Israel by breaching the Gaza border fence and pouring into Israeli towns that are just yards from the border. Tanks were also deployed.
Israel's continued use of lethal force against the largely unarmed demonstrators has been met with condemnation from the United Nations, human rights groups, and key USA allies, including the UK, France, and Germany. Militants had opened fire on Israeli troops and tried to set off bombs by the fence.
It did not say how long Zomlot, the most senior Palestinian official in Washington, would be withdrawn for.
As Israel has faced a growing backlash and new charges of using excessive force against Palestinians, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley praised Israel for showing restraint as Palestinian resistance group Hamas "has been inciting violence for years, long before the United States made a decision to move our embassy" to Jerusalem.
Erdogan regards himself as a champion of the Palestinian cause and past year hosted an OIC summit in Istanbul to denounce US President Donald Trump´s decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel´s capital.
Palestinians oppose the relocation because they want Jerusalem as a future capital, according to Fox News.
Meanwhile, the Israeli government has asked the Turkish consul general in Jerusalem to temporarily leave the country.
"Those who suggest that the Gaza violence has anything to do with the location of the American embassy are sorely mistaken".
Confronted with the fact that Israelis point to the use of swastikas to discredit the protests as anti-Semitic and violently anti-Israel, the man remained firm.
German spokesman Steffen Seibert said the violence "concerns us greatly", but also accused Hamas of cynically escalating the unrest.
Djilali said it was ironic that Jews would persecute Palestinians after being persecuted themselves by the Nazis, and that they were forgetting the teachings of peace in the Jewish Torah.
