Ireland summons Israeli ambassador over Gaza killings

Marcos Fernando Yax

The health system was already facing major challenges due to lack of equipment and essential medicines.

The demonstrations were fuelled by a controversial decision by US President Donald Trump to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

'Nine sustained bullet wounds, 13 were injured by tear gas canisters and 189 suffered with tear gas inhalation. 25 ambulances were also damaged.

This was the message at a small picket held outside the Port Elizabeth City Hall on Tuesday in support of The Great Return March, which is a series of rallies by Palestinian people culminating on Tuesday on the anniversary of the Nakba.

"My request to him was to ask if there was the possibility of considering putting the inauguration of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem on hold".

Most of the Gazans who died yesterday were shot by Israeli snipers, Gaza's health ministry said.

According to the Palestinian Health Ministry, at least 60 Palestinian demonstrators have been martyred by cross-border Israeli gunfire in one of the deadliest single day massacres in the country's history.

"The comment that consisted of saying that all killed or hurt were terrorists - that we can obviously not accept", Belgian Foreign Minister Didier Reynders said as quoted by The Times of Israel.

The Tanaiste has expressed Ireland's outrage to Israel after the latest deaths in Gaza.

The White House also blamed Hamas for the violence.

This is another stark reminder of the ongoing Israeli brutality against the indigenous Palestinians, which painfully reminds us of the darkest days of Apartheid in South Africa.

European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said "we expect all to act with utmost restraint to avoid further loss of life".

As reported by the Irish Independent this morning, foreign Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Simon Coveney met with the head of the Israeli diplomatic mission, expressed his "shock and turmoil of Ireland to the number killed and injured yesterday in Gaza" and urged Israel to exercise restraint in relations with the Palestinians.

At this very risky moment in time for the Middle East, I call on all involved to return to meaningful diplomacy, to avoid escalation and show the utmost care and respect for global treaties and agreements.

Mary Lou McDonald, leader of the country's third largest political party Sinn Fein, said that the government should send the Israeli ambassador to Ireland home and recall Irish diplomats from Israel in protest at Monday's events.
