U.S. says Israel showed 'restraint' as Palestinian death toll rises

Shamout was referring to the killing of dozens of Palestinians by Israeli forces during clashes and protests on Monday over the deeply controversial opening of a United States embassy in Jerusalem.

In a response statement, Netanyahu said that "Erdoğan is among Hamas's biggest supporters and there is no doubt that he well understands terrorism and slaughter".

"We must posit a moral alternative to the government, so that we have some kind of future here".

Kuwait's Ambassador Mansour al-Otaibi and other ambassadors widely criticized the US move at the meeting, saying it has the potential to ignite even more violence in an already unstable region.

"By confirming the transfer of its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, the United States destroys the peace process between Israel and Palestine and pushes the conflict of both peoples towards a bloody confrontation", the South American leader tweeted hours after the USA government opened its new diplomatic headquarters in Israel.

The council met after the bloodiest day for Palestinians since a 2014 Gaza war. The demonstrations went peacefully, although one man was arrested in Ankara for throwing eggs and stones at the residence of the Israeli ambassador.

He told BBC Radio 4′s Today programme Israel "did everything we could" to avoid the bloodshed at the border with Gaza, which saw soldiers open fire on protesters.

The highly charged meeting of the Security Council took place as Palestinians again protested at the Israeli border in Gaza, to mark the Nakba, or catastrophe, the anniversary of when hundreds of thousands of Palestinians fled or were expelled from their homes following the establishment of Israel 70 years ago.

UAE's ADNOC, Spain's Cespa sign deal for new downstream facility in Ruwais
ADNOC said the blocks are estimated to hold billions of barrels of oil and trillions of cubic feet of natural gas. The development also assumes importance given that UAE supplies 8% of crude oil imports of India.

She says that Europe needs to concentrate on finding allies, expanding its strategy, to find a solution.

On Facebook, he wrote: "I chose to return the embassy of Guatemala to the city of Jerusalem two days after the United States moved its embassy".

The opening of the American embassy in Jerusalem is a poignant event for Hamas, which has hoped for years to reclaim East Jerusalem and make it the capital of the Palestinian state.

"Such violence is destructive to peace efforts and we call on all sides to show restraint", she said.

"No country in this chamber would act with more restraint than Israel has", she said.

"As American Jews, we see Netanyahu saying he speaks for all Jews, and we're saying that's not true", volunteer organizer Sarah Brammer-Shlay told HuffPost on Tuesday, saying actions in Israel were "pushed by our government".

Regarding the opening of the embassy, Israel's Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon said that "everyone who claims that the U.S. Embassy move is to blame for Palestinian violence needs to look at the facts".
