Turkey's Erdogan slams Netanyahu, calls Israel an 'apartheid state'

Palestinian protesters burn tires near the Israeli border fence east of Khan Younis in the Gaza Strip Monday

On the 70th anniversary of the establishment of Israel - which the Palestinians refer to as Nakba or "catastrophe" - Monday marked the deadliest day on the Gaza border since a 2014 cross-border war, according to the Associated Press. The Israeli Defense Forces said 24 "terrorists" had been killed amid the violent protests.

Over sixty Palestinians were killed during Monday protests over the opening of the new USA embassy in Jerusalem, one day ahead of 'Nakba Day, ' according to the Gaza Health Ministry. Prayers were followed by parades of Palestinians carrying flag-wrapped bodies high above their heads, chanting on the way to the cemetery.

Eitan Naeh was summoned to the Turkish foreign ministry and told to "return to his country for a period of time", said a foreign ministry official who asked not to be named.

Israel did the same to the Turkish consul in Jerusalem.

From Tel Aviv and Jerusalem to Umm al-Fahm, Israelis and Palestinians take to the streets to protest the killing of 60 demonstrators in Gaza a day earlier.

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. I suggest he not preach morality to us". "We can not turn a blind eye to such wanton disregard for global law", he said. Some Palestinians fled prior to the displacement, while the more resistant villages - like Deir Yassin - were destroyed. "When are you going to act?"

Boyd Barrett also called for the immediate expulsion of the Israeli ambassador to Ireland, a call that was taken up by other speakers at the event and the crowd.

The death toll rose to 60 overnight after an eight-month-old baby died from tear gas that her family said she inhaled at a protest camp on Monday.

"More than 50 dead, 2000 injured in protest against arbitrary transfer of US Embassy to Jerusalem", President Morales said in a tweet Monday night.

While addressing a UNSC meeting Riyad Mansour said that the U.S. was responsible for the Palestinian deaths.

Jerusalem's status is perhaps the thorniest issue in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

What will be the end game between Israel and Iran?
He spoke as thousands of Iranians marched in anti-Israel and anti-US protests nationwide. They mostly base upon the current voluminous Syrian military infrastructure.

The high casualty toll revived global criticism of Israel's open-fire policies.

A number of countries expressed concern at the violence and some, including Germany and Britain, called for an independent probe.

"Make no mistake, Hamas is pleased with the results from yesterday", she said.

Mr Michel said the violence and killings would be moved onto the calendar of the European Union summit in Sofia on Wednesday and Thursday.

Israel's leader also accused the Islamist movement Hamas which rules Gaza of deliberately putting civilians in the line of fire for political gain.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar said that Ireland would not be expelling the Israeli ambassador.

South African ambassador Sisa Ngombane was recalled after International Relations and Cooperation Minister Lindiwe Sisulu made contact with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo about possibly delaying America's move.

Israel has blamed Hamas for attacks and other militant activity, including the firing of rockets from Gaza into Israeli territory.

U.N. Middle East envoy Nickolay Mladenov briefed the Security Council on Tuesday on the latest Gaza violence. He called on Israel to "recalibrate" its use of force and to use lethal force only as a last resort.

"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".

According to a statement released by the Palestinian Foreign Ministry on Tuesday, the head of the Palestine Liberation Organization's office in Washington, Husam Zomlot, would be leaving the United States on Wednesday.
