‘Terrible massacre’: Israel kills 52, injures 2,410 Gaza protesters as US embassy opens in Jerusalem

RT

Fifty-two Palestinian protesters have been killed by Israeli fire during demonstrations ahead of the US embassy inauguration in Jerusalem, the Palestinian health ministry said Monday.

More than 2,400 protesters have been injured in Gaza so far on what has been the most violent day of the six week long Great March of Return. Those wounded on Monday include 203 children and 78 women, according to the ministry.

The Palestinian government denounced Monday’s violence as a “terrible massacre” perpetrated “by the forces of the Israeli occupation”, and called for an immediate international intervention to prevent further deaths.

There are around 35,000 protesters gathered at the border fence and thousands more within half a mile of the vicinity, according to Israeli Defence Forces.

Clashes have also reportedly broken out between protesters and the Israeli Defense Forces in Bethlehem.

The first of Monday’s deaths was 21-year-old Anas Hamdan Qudeih, killed east of Khan Yunis, a spokesperson for the ministry said. A 29-year-old man, Mosaab Yousef Ibrahim Abu Laila, was later killed east of Jabalya. Some of the dead have yet to be identified. At least one child is among the fatalities.

Amnesty International has called the Israeli violence in Gaza “an abhorrent violation of international law & human rights.” Six children are among Monday’s fatalities, according to the human rights organization.

The majority of injuries have been caused by live bullets while some 320 people were targeted with teargas, according to the ministry. The Palestinian Health Ministry claims that Israeli forces are directly targeting emergency services and journalists.

Six journalists have reportedly been injured while covering Monday’s demonstrations, according to the Journalist Support Committee.

Meanwhile, the IDF said Israeli Air Force planes targeted Hamas posts near Jabalya after its soldiers came under fire in the area.

The latest deaths bring the number killed since the Great March of Return protests began six weeks ago to 88.

Scuffles have reportedly broken out outside the new US embassy in Jerusalem as the inauguration ceremony took place inside.

Turkey’s Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag has condemned Monday’s violence, claiming the US, as well as Israel, is responsible for the “massacre” because of their “unjust decision” to move the embassy.

Tuesday marks the commemoration of Nakba Day, a term which Palestinians use to describe their forced mass exodus from their homes during the establishment of the State of Israel. It is celebrated among Israelis as Independence Day. Thousands of people have gathered near the border to take part in Monday’s protests.

Huge demonstrations are expected to mark the May 15 event, which brings to a close the six-week Great March of Returndemonstrations.

The IDF dropped leaflets warning people in Gaza to stay away from the security fence ahead of Monday’s protests. Demonstrators in North Gaza brought down an IDF drone that was allegedly dropping fire bombs on tents, according to the Great Return March movement.

    Thats the fastest construction project, I’ve ever herd of a year maybe or so!!

      Yea I was just thinking the same thing. They sure can build things fast when it comes to the right people for the right price. I think the embassy in Iraq is still being built.

    “The Palestinian government denounced Monday’s violence as a “terrible massacre” perpetrated “by the forces of the Israeli occupation”, and called for an immediate international intervention to prevent further deaths.”
    To my Palestinian people, the problems in this statement are 1, it says Palestinian government. There is no such thing. It’s nothing more than Palestinians pretending to be a government while keeping Palestinians acquiesced for israel. And 2, it calls for international intervention. It won’t happen. The nations you’re lookingb to for aid are puppets to international Talmudic Zionism. They will and have always watched while israel openly and with impunity murders, takes land, occupies and ethnically cleanses Palestinians while waving a finger at some UN meeting, pretending to care and meanwhile deliver billions to the Zionist occupiers of their own citizens tax dollars. The only thing that will save Palestinians are Palestinians who’ve had enough and take it upon themselves to defend and reverse the course of actions in Palestine.
    And to my fellow Americans, if and when we ever denounce the left right paradigm and actually try to return to a republic founded on our bill of rights, just remember, you will be the new Palestinian. When israel is done using your resources, money, children…we will know what it is to be those fighting for what was always rightfully ours and what It feels like to be the people so many of us hated with no reason, laughed at, didn’t care to understand the plight of, etc etc. And just remember, we’re paying for and supplying it ourselves.

      There will be no freedom on the Earth, until we shed the thorny crown of international Kabbalahism. “Love your neighbor as yourself” is still Devine law, codified in the Bill of Rights.
      It’s time for Americans to grow the hell up.

      Jamal, outstanding comment, one that stirred my heart.

      And the only thing that will HELP save the Palestinians is guns, Jamal.

      They’ll never win that fight with rocks, unfortunately.

      • Jamal says:

        That’s absolutely right #1. But their so called leadership is nothing more than controlled opposition. Opportunists looking for handouts and trying to be king for a day for scraps from israel.

    Shit wont end till the jews are nothing but a memory, a historical relic in museums as to what should never be allowed. My advice to the Palestinians is ARM UP and TRAIN for once, dont fight like the 3rd world but train hard and wage an all out war, throw the book out the window on rules and fight to win not this 3rd world crap.

    This is a slow war of total extermination.

    • Jamal says:

      That is excellent advice!

    • galen says:

      Vekar, your advice to the Palestinians to “ARM UP” got me wondering… I know they’re supposed leadership, Hamas, is compromised, like Jamal mentioned above. In fact, some report that Hamas was created by Israelis. And we hear Hamas is armed. But with the protesters, we only see them throwing rocks, or small explosives that seem to be no more than over-the-counter fire-crackers. Were they, are they disarmed? I have done searches on this and cannot figure it out. I know black market exists everywhere, but for some reason I never see a gun in the hand of a Palestinian protester. Sure would like this cleared up if anyone has any information on it.

      .

      • Jamal says:

        Hi Galen. I know you asked vekar, hope you don’t mind if I answer though. The Palestinians were disarmed by the British first. Right before the influx of Zionist Europeans. Coincidence, right. The middle east used to be very different in culture from what it is today. It was relatively peaceful and very gun friendly before the disarmament. I was actually referring to the Fatah leadership but Hamas is not too far off. Hamas was supported in some small ways by israel to be an internal fight between them (the more extremist type) and Yasser Arafat’s PLO. Socialists infiltrated both groups and of course they don’t favor guns in people’s hands just in case the people get wise to their ways. But Hamas ended up becoming a thorn in Israel’s side when Iran gave them support. The Palestinian people have been giving the benefit of the doubt to their governments and others in hopes they would help them but obviously that isn’t the case. The black market is an outlet for weapons but with the strict crackdown from israel and so many informants and traitors it’s hard to acquire weapons. Billions annually and weapons packages unmatched in history from a multitude of governments to israel also doesn’t make it any easier. Palestinians are in a situation most could never fathom. Completely surrounded by their enemy and ignored by the world. Not much is gonna get in for them to do anything useful. People really just don’t understand the severity of the situation. All of this is foretold. And by God all will be corrected. People everywhere are victims to the Talmudic jew world order. Maybe if and when we realize what’s being done and do something about it ourselves will tides turn. But, God works in mysterious ways.

        • galen says:

          Thanks, Jamal. Good snapshot of mid-east madness. And this also ties in with the ambiguity of what some call the country of Israel, which used to be (and some say still is) the country of Palestine. So if it’s supposedly one country, how is it that Israelis are armed to the teeth but Pals are not? It would be like here in America, only one race could be armed. Damn, they create so much confusion. And you are right about how the Pal plight can easily become our own. For some of us, it already is. It was about 35 years ago that I first marched for Palestine. As we know, since then it’s only gotten worse. Whole planet in severe trouble, but those who wallow in unjust prosperity, go on sipping cocktails, in the fog of the “Everything’s Fine” club. Good that many refuse membership in such a club.

          ‘ All of this is foretold’……and that is why so very many do not take action…….

      • Henry Shivley says:

        Hamas is like the so called Patriot Movement in this country, perpetuating the pretense that there is some other way out other than the people themselves destroying their oppressors. Hamas is controlled by Israeli money and is a paid for buffer for the Israelis to put between them and the people they are committing genocide on. Maybe the people don’t have guns to fight because all their resource is going to those who don’t fight.
        Just my opinion.

    Happy now Trump? You POS.

    “Six children are among Monday’s fatalities, according to the human rights organization.”

    I’ve seen enough insanity already… I’m done for today.
