Israeli troops kill more Palestinians as Gaza protest resumes

The nation-wide rallies held in solidarity with Palestine are being covered by about 5,300 Iranian and foreign journalists.

NABS member Ahmed Abu Rteima, for his part, said: "Peaceful mobilization is our most powerful weapon".

Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon condemned the decision to hold the meeting. Since the event will cost US$14 million and is created to market the country, she stated that it wouldn't be right to invest that much money in public funds if it wasn't held in Jerusalem. "We will proudly defend our right to defend our citizens time and again, and in every forum where our adversaries seek to falsely malign us".

The tit-for-tat row over the cancellation of Argentina's friendly with Israel this coming Saturday has intensified with the Israelis demanding Federation Internationale de Football Association investigate what it said were threats against Argentina players and laying the blame squarely at the feet of the Palestinian authorities.

Tensions peaked on May 14 when at least 61 Palestinians were killed in protests to coincide with the controversial opening of the United States embassy in Jerusalem. "And I said we will not relent in our quest to try to find ways to provide protection for the civilian population, because it is our duty", Mansour added.

Early Friday morning, local eyewitnesses said Israeli forces - using unmanned aerial drones - had torched several protesters' tents east of Gaza's southern city of Rafah. It will call for an immediate ceasefire.

Israel has accused Gaza's ruling group, the Islamic militant Hamas, of trying to carry out attacks and damage the fence under the guise of the protests.

Rouhani's message said this year's events were "special" because of US President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and 2018 being "the 70th anniversary of the occupation of the Palestinian land" - a reference to Israel's War of Independence.
