Hamas plans further protests as it rejects medical supplies from Israel

Ramallah. Palestine on Wednesday recalled its ambassadors to four European states after diplomats from those states reportedly took part in celebrations marking the relocation of the USA embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, reported Anadolu Agenci.

Israel has been buoyed by the new Jerusalem missions, which have infuriated the Palestinians.

The move is also seen by some as a gesture to elicit U.S. support at a time when Morales stands accused by Guatemalan prosecutors of accepting illegal campaign contributions. Most experts agree that any future Palestinian state would include East Jerusalem.

Israel regards all of the city, including the eastern sector it annexed after the 1967 conflict, as its capital.

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

"It's not a coincidence that Guatemala is opening its embassy in Jerusalem right among the first, you are always among the first", said Netanyahu. "We remember our friends and Guatemala is our friend, then and now".

On Monday, tens of thousands had gathered near the border while smaller numbers of stone-throwing Palestinians approached the fence and sought to break through, with Israeli snipers positioned on the other side.

The Israeli military has come under heavy worldwide criticism for firing on unarmed protesters, and faces accusations of using disproportionate force.

It was entirely appropriate that the Israeli ambassador was summoned to the Department of Foreign Affairs in Dublin to be told of what taoiseach Leo Varadkar described as the Irish people's outrage and dismay over the appalling bloodshed in Gaza.

Monday's massacre was the bloodiest day in the Gaza Strip since 2014 when Israel attacked the blockaded coastal enclave in a military operation codenamed Operation Protective Edge. They said the Palestinians would not accept medicine "from the murderers of our people".

The Trump administration's close ties with Israel mean that the Palestinians shouldn't hold out for condemnation of IDF brutality or American support. Israel retaliated with its own expulsions of top Turkish diplomats.

USA ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley ended her speech with a powerful statement - using no words at all.

Replying to questions on Vietnam's reaction to the US's opening of its embassy in Jerusalem and the rising tension in the region, the spokesperson said that Vietnam protests the use of violence and calls for restraint and an end to escalating tension.
