Hamas official says 50 members killed this week on Gaza border

Hamas official says 50 members killed this week on Gaza border

South Africa and Turkey recalled their ambassadors to Israel, and Turkey expelled the Israeli ambassador to Ankara.

Many council members also re-emphasized their distance from the USA decision to open an embassy in Jerusalem and recognize it as Israel's capital.

Israel says Hamas militants have also tried to carry out bombing and shooting attacks under the cover of the protests.

Speaking at an army base near the Gaza border, Lieberman said the goal of Hamas was "to remove the siege (over Gaza) but not to build their economy or create coexistence", he said, referring to the Israeli blockade of the strip.

No casualties were reported in either incident.

But with the images of rifle-toting Israeli snipers facing off against seemingly unarmed protesters beamed around the world, the remarks by Hamas may do little to convince Israel's detractors, including the Palestinians. "No one would." Haley said.

Hamas called on Palestinians to cross the border en masse to coincide with the opening of the American embassy in Jerusalem on Monday. Fridays normally see protesters turn out in larger numbers.

Safadi said the Israeli practices and the lack of a solution to the conflict worsen the situation and increase despair, which results in more violence and extremism and called on the global community to shoulder its legal and moral responsibilities to protect the Palestinians.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales were among officials who attended a ceremony inaugurating the new embassy at an office park in the disputed city, which is at the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Hamas is intentionally and cynically provoking this response. "How can Hamas reap the fruits if it pays such an expensive price?" said Salah Bardawil.

"They were keen these marches do not slide into armed confrontations and we agree with the brothers in Egypt over that", Sinwar said in an interview on Al Jazeera television.

Gaza has been controlled since 2007 by Hamas, an Islamist group that denies Israel's right to exist and has fought three wars with Israel in the past decade.

"The territory's lack of power, clean water, adequate medical care and other necessities not only exacerbates the hardships faced by Gaza's population, but redounds to the benefit of extremist groups who use this deprivation and despair to incite violence against Israel", reads the letter signed by Senators Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), among others.

As top US officials including Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, attended the embassy's opening ceremony and President Trump addressed those gathered in a video message, Israeli security forces and Palestinian protesters clashed in rioting that left dozens dead and several hundred more wounded.

But the start on Thursday of the holy month of Ramadan, when Muslims abstain from eating and drinking during daylight hours, could limit the scale of demonstrations.
