MSM: Hamas sends in babies and it's all Trump's fault

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has condemned the "devastating one-sided loss of life" in Jerusalem after Israeli forces opened fire on Palestinian protesters who opposed the opening of the US Embassy there.

Tell that to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

White House spokesman Raj Shah accused Hamas's leaders of making a "gruesome and unfortunate propaganda attempt" that led to the clashes in Gaza at the same time the U.S. was opening its new embassy in Jerusalem, a move that has fuelled Palestinian anger.

Australia was not represented among the diplomats from the more than 30 countries present at the high-profile ceremony, with Foreign Minister Julie Bishop telling The AJN that ambassador Chris Cannan was not in Israel at the time.

"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.

Mr Varadkar said the ambassador was told of Ireland's "outrage" and desire for an independent global investigation lead by the United Nations into the deaths.

The occupied territories have witnessed new tensions ever since US President Donald Trump on December 6, 2017, announced Washington's recognition of Jerusalem al-Quds as Israel's "capital" and said the United States would move the US embassy to the city.

He said that Pakistan also renews its call for establishment of a viable, independent and contiguous state of Palestine, on the basis of internationally agreed parameters, the pre-1967 borders, and with Jerusalem as its capital.

But while Australia has proven itself a staunch friend of the Jewish State, Turnbull told reporters in Melbourne on Tuesday, "We have taken the view - as indeed, most countries have - that it's more conducive to the peace process to keep the Embassy in Tel Aviv".

Palestinian and Turkish leaders called Monday's killings a "massacre" while the United Kingdom and France urged Israel to show restraint.

The U.S. blocked it.

"Recent violence has exacerbated the already weak health system in the Gaza Strip, which is crumbling because of the severe power cuts and shortages of fuel, medicine and equipment", UNICEF said in a statement. He didn't immediately give details of his proposal.

GAZA, May 15 (Reuters) - Worried families crowded the halls and spilled out of rooms in Gaza's hospitals on Tuesday, as patients wounded at a border protest awaited treatment for injuries suffered on Monday, the deadliest day for Palestinians in years.

Hamas leader Khalil al-Hayya, leads an evening prayer marking the first eve of the holy fasting month of Ramadan, outside the tents of the protest camp near the Israeli border east of Gaza City.

"No country in this chamber would act with more restraint than Israel has", Haley said at the Security Council meeting. "At a minimum, that would require urging the Israelis to stop using lethal force against unarmed protesters".

Each accused the other's country of violating global law. A baby girl also died from tear gas fumes during the protests, where at least 60 Palestinians died. "Why are you paralyzed?"
