Israel Targets Hamas Position After Gaza Gunfire

Gaza Israel Palestine conflict

The report also said Erdogan, who now is chairman of the OIC, called for a summit to be held Friday.

Putin and Erdogan also discussed the Syrian settlement and Russian-Turkish cooperation in the energy sector.

She continued by mentioning a list of conflicts that have taken place along the Gaza border, including the killing of 60 Palestinians by Israeli forces on May 14 after the USA opened an embassy in Jerusalem. Dozens of people were killed and 2,700 were wounded.

Meanwhile, In a similar development, The Palestinian Authority has also recalled its envoys to Romania, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Austria after their ambassadors attended an Israeli reception marking the U.S. embassy's move to Jerusalem.

Monday's border confrontation was the culmination of a weeks-long protest campaign to break a border blockade that Israel and Egypt imposed after Hamas took over Gaza by force in 2007.

Following Netanyahu's criticism, Turkey expelled Israeli Ambassador Eitan Na'eh, prompting Israel to respond in kind, ousting Turkey's consul to Jerusalem.

The move had been ordered by the U.S. Congress in 1995, but every president until President Trump waived the requirement.

"The IDF accuses Hamas of using the protests as cover to carry out terrorist attacks".

Last week, the Israeli government claimed the ongoing border protests constituted a "state of war" in which worldwide humanitarian law does not apply.

In Jerusalem, following the U.S. lead, Guatemala opened its embassy in the city on Wednesday.

"This is the beginning of something extraordinary, or I would say, the re-beginning of something extraordinary, which is the relationship between Guatemala and Israel", he said.

Israel said Thursday it launched an overnight air raid on a Hamas facility in Gaza, after gunfire from the territory targeted its soldiers and damaged a building.

"We have no choice but to stop the North-South high-level talk scheduled for the 16th under the ugly circumstances where there is indiscreet North-invading war fuss and fight rampage", KCNA said.

Weeks of protests and clashes along the border may be reaching an end as Ramadan begins, but the death toll has led to worldwide condemnations of Israel and calls for an independent investigation.

Guatemala was one of only a few nations that backed Trump's decision in December to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and it is only the second country to move its embassy to the holy city.

Hamas's leader in the Gaza Strip, Yahya Sinwar, told Al-Jazeera on Wednesday that the Egyptians "support the right of our people to struggle and the right of return, and stressed their keenness not to allow these marches to degenerate into an armed military confrontation". It was considered as the bloodiest day of cross-border firing since a 2014 war between Israel and Hamas.

He said his chief of staff's office and foreign ministry were working to evacuate the injured from Gaza, and said that Turkey would stand by Palestine "no matter what the price". Most experts agree that any future Palestinian state would include East Jerusalem.
