  • Belgium, Ireland summon Israeli ambassadors over Gaza killings

The Belgian Foreign Ministry summoned Israeli Ambassador Simona Frankel on Tuesday over her statement, in which she compared the people killed during protests on the border between Israel and the Gaza Strip to terrorists, the ministerial press service said.

The meeting between Mr Coveney and Israeli ambassador Zeev Bokar took place between 08:00 and O8:30 BST on Tuesday. The Minister will also brief the Cabinet on the situation in Gaza this morning.

Ambassador Boker was informed of Irish demands for an independent worldwide investigation, led by the United Nations, into yesterday's deaths to take place.

The spokesman also underlined that "the health system [in Gaza] was already facing major challenges due to lack of equipment and essential medicines".

Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu has spoken out against the atrocities in Palestine following the killing of more than 60 Gazans during a protest against the USA moving its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and the right to return to their homes in Israel near the Gaza-Israel border.

'Nine sustained bullet wounds, 13 were injured by tear gas canisters and 189 suffered with tear gas inhalation.

Fresh protests were also expected on Tuesday as Palestinians continue to mark the Nakba commemorating the more than 700,000 Palestinians who fled or were expelled in the 1948 war surrounding Israel's creation. The SACP further condemns the provocation of United States President Donald Trump administration's decision to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem.

Most of the Gazans who died yesterday were shot by Israeli snipers, Gaza's health ministry said.

The death toll led to strong condemnation from rights groups and concern from a range of countries. "We call for an worldwide inquiry led by the United Nations", Michel said in a joint statement with Foreign Minister Didier Reynders.

The Tanaiste has expressed Ireland's outrage to Israel after the latest deaths in Gaza.

Russian Federation and China on Tuesday also raised concerns over the deadly violence.

Protesters at the Hamas-led demonstration in Gaza hurled projectiles at Israeli forces and lit tires on fire, choking the air with thick black smoke, as Israeli soldiers opened fire, killing more than 50 people. "The government should do so at this critical time and to make a stand for peace and progress in the Middle East", he said.

European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said "we expect all to act with utmost restraint to avoid further loss of life".
