Hamas offers Israel quiet on Gaza border if airstrikes reduced

  • Protests turning deadly

On Monday, worldwide media, quoting the Gaza Health Ministry, said at least 58 people were shot dead by Israeli forces and about 1,113 injured during demonstrations against the embassy relocation as Palestinians prepared to mark 70 years since the Nakba, or catastrophe - the day on which the state of Israel was established on May 15, 1948.

According to a report from Hebrew media, Walla, the combination of 60 Palestinians killed by Israeli fire in the single bloodiest day of conflict since 2014 along with the Israeli air strikes apparently caused Hamas to rethink its strategy. One Israeli soldier was wounded.

It must protect its borders, but it must do so proportionally and investigate every incident that has led to a loss of human life, he added.

Asked whether Israel is losing anything as a result of the events in Gaza, Amidror - a fellow at the Jerusalem Institute for Strategic Studies - replied, "Yes, I think many people in the world think that this is like a demonstration in Brussels against the central bank, or something like that".

While no fatalities were reported in the West Bank, where limited clashes took place between demonstrators and Israeli security forces at several checkpoints, the situation in Gaza deteriorated throughout the day, particularly along the perimeter fence, said Mladenov.


The United Nations is working with Israel and the Palestinian National Authority to bring in life-saving assistance despite the destruction and extensive damage to the crossing, he said.

This was corroborated on Tuesday by Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, who blamed Hamas for the dozens of deaths in Gaza for "pushing people to the border".

He says Israeli state officials do not need visas to enter South Africa.

Both these resolutions affirm that Jerusalem would be the capital of the future Palestinian State and the State of Israel.

South African ambassador Sisa Ngombane was recalled after International Relations and Cooperation Minister Lindiwe Sisulu made contact with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo about possibly delaying America's move.
