As criticism for Israel mounts, Guatemala opens its embassy in Jerusalem

PE protesters join rage against Israel

Israel said it was a warranted response to numerous shooting incidents throughout Wednesday, including machine gun fire, which targeted the city of Sderot in the Southern District of Israel.

The worldwide community does not recognize Israeli sovereignty over the entire city and says its final status should be set in peace negotiations.

The army said planes bombarded a military compound and a weapons production facility in the Gaza Strip on Thursday.

Israeli troops shot dead dozens of Palestinian protesters on the Gaza border on Monday when the high-profile opening of the U.S. Embassy to Israel in Jerusalem by the administration of President Donald Trump raised tension to boiling point after weeks of anti-Israeli demonstrations.

But the start on Thursday of the holy month of Ramadan, when Muslims abstain from eating and drinking during daylight hours, could limit the scale of demonstrations. "About 1,200 others suffered other types of injuries, including from tear gas, Palestinian sources said".

In an interview with Baladna TV, a private Palestinian news outlet that broadcasts via Facebook, senior Hamas official Salah Bardawil said 50 out of the protesters killed Monday were Hamas members, with the others being "from the people."That's according to The Associated Press".

Pushing back against foreign censure of its army's actions, Israel has - with Washington's backing - accused Hamas of using civilians as cover for attacks across the frontier fence and to distract from Gaza's internal problems.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Netanyahu had already exchanged insults on Twitter after Monday's chaos along Gaza's border fence with Israel, which has blockaded the coastal enclave for more than a decade.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine saved by NBC
By Friday night it was an NBC series. "Thanks in no small part to you, the best fans in the history of the world". It seems, with fans as supportive as these, Brooklyn Nine-Nine may never end up behind bars.

Speaking to Al-Jazeera on Wednesday, Hamas's Gaza head Yahya Sinwar warned his movement could return to armed resistance.

With Israel lamenting that the Palestinian militants forced it to use deadly force to protect its own people, the IDF dispatched supplies to the aggressors to aid their recovery, but the terrorist-led rioters rejected the generous offer.

Israeli officials quickly seized upon his remarks. "This was no peaceful protest", Israeli military spokesman Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus wrote on Twitter. "Take his word for it".

On Monday, Vietnam dismissed claims that it participated in a gala hosted by Israel to celebrate the opening of a new USA embassy in Jerusalem. Paraguay is slated to do the same next week.

Monday's protests were also against the move of the USA embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Those talks have been stalled since 2014.

Israel captured east Jerusalem in the 1967 Mideast war and later annexed it in a move not recognized internationally.

Israel considers the entire city its capital, while the Palestinians see east Jerusalem as the capital of their future state.
