Argentina-Israel Soccer Game Canceled Over Playing in Jerusalem

10 June, 2018, 16:27 | Author: Ted Wilson
  • Reports said that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had called Argentinian President Mauricio Macri to ask him to persuade the team not to cancel their visit

Palestinian demonstrators brought down an Israeli drone carrying a camera used to film demonstrators in eastern Gaza City.

Among the injured Palestinians, 117 were hit with live gunshots, 60 with tear gas inhalation, and 77 by bullets shrapnels or tear gas canisters, said al-Qedra.

The measure is being pushed by Arab powers, according to wire services, and will accuse the Jewish state of mishandling a recent spout of protests along its border and calling for protection for the Palestinian people.

Organisers linked Friday's protests to annual "Jerusalem Day" events in Iran, which like Gaza's dominant Hamas Islamists preaches Israel's destruction and was incensed by the U.S. recognition in December of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital.

More than 115 Palestinians have been killed and almost 3,700 wounded during near-weekly protests along the Israeli border, according to Palestinian health officials.

"As the Trump Administration and Israel encourage global anarchy by flouting established worldwide norms, both countries seek to deny Palestinian rights indefinitely", Erekat wrote, panning the White House for recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital and relocating its embassy there, a move which he characterized as "part of a United States attempt to force an Israeli-written agreement on the Palestinians".

In Gaza, at least 115 Palestinians had been killed and almost 3,800 wounded by Israeli army fire in previous protests near the border fence.

England 2-0 Costa Rica
England hosted Costa Rica at Elland Road on Thursday night, with Jordan Henderson captaining his side. Anything is possible and we have to go there with the highest expectations'.

Ismael Haniyyah, Hamas political bureau chief, wrote in a column published by MEE on Thursday that the Great March aims to stress the right of return for refugees, denounce the U.S. embassy move to Jerusalem and push to "send a loud message to the world that Gaza will not succumb to a slow death, and to demand an immediate and unconditional end to the siege". International Jerusalem Day also happens to fall this year during the 51st anniversary of the 1967 Middle East war, also known to Palestinians as the Naksa, or "Setback". But this is not a peaceful protest. -APP Protesters pledged to continue raising voice for rights of oppressed Palestinians.

The General Assembly last held a vote on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in December, when it condemned the U.S. for its decision to move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv.

Around 2 million people live in Gaza, majority the stateless descendants of refugees from what is now Israel. Israel and Hamas, which seeks Israel's destruction, have fought three cross-border wars since 2008. Tel Aviv denies any excessive use of force, saying that the riots are violent and pose a threat to the security of Israel, and it is acting in self-defense.

An Israeli aircraft fired a warning shot Saturday to deter a group of Gazans preparing to fly a balloon fitted with explosives over the border, in the first such case, the army said.

Emmanuel Nahshon, spokesman for Israel's Foreign Ministry, took to Twitter to condemn the Hamas "terrorists".

"We are not asking for the moon", one protester, Amer Abu Khalaf, said, explaining the protest aimed to "break the siege and have the world recognise [Palestine's] right to return".
