Paraguay to open Jerusalem embassy next week after US move

Israeli forces have killed some 116 Palestinians since the protests began, with one Israeli soldier reported wounded.

Young men filled sandbags to prepare for future protests at encampments along Gaza's Israeli border on Thursday, though tents were mostly empty as Palestinians joined Muslims around the world observing the daylight fast at the start of Ramadan.

Sporadic cross-border fire was a reminder of the situation's unresolved volatility, however. Trump's move was considered by some as a tacit acceptance of Israel's de facto control over the city, and Palestinian politicians have said that the embassy move demonstrates the U.S.is not an unbiased broker qualified to help steer Middle East peace talks. Hamas says the demonstrations are a popular outpouring of anger, and Israel carried out a "massacre" in response.

"They [Hamas] tell women to go forward [to the front of the riots] "you are a woman, go forward, the army does not shoot women", he said".

IDF released footage of a Hamas terrorist explaining how the group manipulated Palestinians in Gaza to rush the border with Israel.

But there were numerous calls for an independent investigation into the deaths, with Britain, Germany, Switzerland and Belgium among those supporting such action.

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said Egypt was in communication with both sides "so that this bloodshed would stop".

Arab foreign ministers are holding an emergency meeting three days after the opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem and violence along the Gaza border, where Israeli forces killed dozens of Palestinians.

Albardawil was responding to a question about Hamas sending kids to die in the border riots as political fodder.

He said: "We will always stand against aggressors and oppressors and believe that the ultimate victory belongs to the oppressed and Palestinians".

It was the deadliest day in the besieged territory since 2014 war. "Take his word for it". Still, several advocates argue that the majority of the protesters were peacefully demonstrating to call attention to the frightful living conditions they face. That's because, she said, Hamas lied to its own people claiming the Israeli soldiers had withdrawn and urging people to burst through the fence.

"I can not agree with the fact that dozens of peaceful civilians, including children and infants, who were killed in these incidents were terrorists", he said.

She said, "Let's remember that the Hamas terrorist organization has been inciting violence for years, long before the United States chose to move our embassy". Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu said Guatemala was a "friend" which had also followed the USA to be the second country to recognise Israel 70 years ago. The country is seeing a record number of tourists visiting. Turkey and Israel expelled each other's ambassadors.

Hamas denied it had come under Egyptian pressure to curb the protests, which provoked global condemnation of Israel's deadly tactics in putting down the unrest.

Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump were among the guests headlining the Jerusalem embassy opening, a move condemned by Palestinians and widely criticized by world leaders who consider the relocation a provocation.

The Israeli premier spoke of Guatemala's early recognition of the state of Israel after its creation in 1948 and said he would visit the country of 16-million on his next visit to Latin America.
