Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad al Hussein of Jordan speaks during a news conference at the United

Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon issued a stern rebuke of Kuwait on Friday after the oil-rich Arab nation circulated a draft resolution calling for an global force to be deployed to Gaza in order to protect Palestinian civilians from Israel.

They thanked countries and organizations that rejected the USA embassy move, condemning others for taking part in Monday's inauguration ceremony.

Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi In a statement said that Pakistan will continue to support Palestinian community on every forum.

Separately, the Arab League has called for an worldwide probe into alleged crimes by Israeli forces against Palestinians following mass protests on the Gaza border that saw dozens of demonstrators martyred.

In addition, Mevlut Cavusoglu called on the UN General Assembly to adopt a resolution condemning the relocation of the American Embassy to Jerusalem, because the resolution in the security Council the United States will again be able to block.

The US earlier blocked Kuwait's attempt to get the Security Council to issue a condemnation of Israel's killing of protesters on Monday, saying it was one-sided and failed to mention incitement of violence by Hamas, the Islamic militant group that rules Gaza.




Members of Students for Justice in Palestine held a protest at an event celebrating Israeli history Thursday, claiming it did not acknowledge Palestinians as indigenous to the region.

"Over the course of the next two days, I urge you all to reflect on how we can turn this vision into a reality", she said.

The council met after the bloodiest day for Palestinians since the 2014 Gaza war, while only miles away the United States opened its new embassy in Jerusalem.

At a Security Council meeting Tuesday, the U.N.'s top Mideast envoy said there was no justification for the killings.

Israel said that some of those killed were involved in planting explosives or firing on soldiers and that Hamas was using the border protests as cover to stage attacks.

"It is imperative that everyone show the utmost restraint to avoid further loss of life, including all civilians, and particularly children, are not in harm's way", she said.
