Palestinian demonstrators burn tires near the Gaza Israel border east of Gaza City

The violence between the Palestinians and the Israelis kicked off this week amid the opening of the United States Embassy in Jerusalem. The majority of those identified belonged to the Hamas terrorist group, while others belonged to the Islamic Jihad terrorist group, according to Israel National News.

Palestinian security sources confirmed the target was a Hamas base, saying there were no reports of injuries. Importantly, moving our embassy to Jerusalem also reflects the reality that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.

Friday's special session will begin at 0800 GMT Friday in Geneva to consider "the deteriorating human rights situation in the occupied Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem", the spokesman said in a statement.

Pushing back against foreign censure of its army's actions, Israel has - with Washington's backing - accused Hamas of using civilians as cover for attacks across the frontier fence and to distract from Gaza's internal problems.

".when we talk about "peaceful resistance" we are deceiving the public", Hamas leader Mahmoud Al-Zahar unabashedly pronounced in an interview with Al-Jazeera. "So this has to be measured not against some ideal of a nonlethal solution, but against Hamas's purposes and what would have happened if they had breached the fence".

"It's trying to defend its borders", Hoyer said in response to a question from The Intercept at a pen-and-pad session on Tuesday with reporters on Capitol Hill. Some burned tires, hurled rocks and Molotov cocktails, floated incendiary kites, and attempted to destroy border fencing.

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

Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, a White House adviser and part of the USA delegation at the ceremony, said, "While presidents before him have backed down from their pledge to move the American embassy once in office, this president delivered". "This is what is endangering the people of Gaza". The protests were led by Hamas, but fueled by the growing despair among Gaza's 2 million people who face worsening poverty, unemployment, 22-hour-a-day power cuts and sweeping bans on travel and trade.

After word got out of the child's death, the mainstream media and Hamas used the child's image as a way to vilify Israeli Defense Forces.
