Hamas to blame for Palestinian deaths

U.S. Envoy for Middle East negotiations Jason Greenblatt on a visit in Israel

Israel has drawn worldwide censure for using live fire against the mostly unarmed protesters who did not appear to present any immediately life-threatening danger to the soldiers.

Palestine's ambassador to the United Nations has called on the UN Security Council to form an independent commission tasked with looking into Israel's "crimes" including the killing and wounding of Palestinian protesters in the besieged Gaza Strip.

Late Saturday, the military released photos and videos depicting what it has said it is trying to counter.

On Saturday, his spokesman said he was referring to killings only in Gaza.

Saeb Erekat, the PLO Secretary General, told reporters at his Ramallah office in the West Bank that Abbas has issued the aforementioned directives to the representative, in light of the continued Israeli assaults on the unarmed protestors in Gaza.

Following the phone conversation, Abbas declared in a meeting that the Palestinians would not allow the American leader to declare Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh hinted that Hamas will internationalize its terror campaign against Israel following the assassination of a Hamas drone expert in Malaysia.

Pippa Middleton reportedly pregnant
Allegedly, Pippa's father-in-law carried out two sexual attacks between 1998 and 1999 in France and the Carribean island of St. The good news also comes after a hard time for the family after Matthews father, David Matthews, recently was accused of rape.

He gave the Israeli army's execution of unarmed Palestinian civilians in the Gaza Strip over the past three weeks as an example of the Israeli crimes, calling for the formation of an global commission of inquiry to hold the occupation accountable for its crimes and to provide worldwide protection for the unarmed Palestinian people.

"Children must be protected from violence, not exposed to it", U.N. Middle East envoy Nickolay Mladenov wrote on Twitter.

However, human rights organizations have called on Israel to use restraint, insisting that lethal force is only justified when there is imminent threat to life. "Mohammed was not running toward the fence". Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said while touring the Israeli side of the border on Friday: "The thing that the other side must understand is that there is a determined and skilled army here".

Hamas says the protests are aimed at breaking a border blockade that was imposed by Israel and Egypt after the Islamic militant group overran Gaza in 2007, a year after winning Palestinian parliament elections.

The marches also press for a "right of return" of Palestinian refugees and their descendants to what is now Israel.

More than 700,000 Palestinians were expelled or fled during the 1948 war. Palestinians mark May 15, the anniversary of Israel's founding, as their "nakba", or catastrophe, to mourn their mass uprooting.

The border blockade has trapped almost all of them in the tiny coastal territory, gutted the economy and deepened poverty.
