Israeli embassy in NZ declares Israel's rights to protect its borders

He went on saying, "While we express our strong condemnation of using the excessive force by the Israeli occupation against unarmed Palestinians who exercise their right and demand their legitimate rights, we warn against the negative repercussions of such a risky escalation and we call for worldwide probe to hold those responsible for this massacre accountable".

"We call for credible global investigations relating to the occupation crimes", - said the head of the Arab League extraordinary summit of foreign Ministers of the Arab countries, which was held on may 17 in Cairo.

Palestinians in the Gaza Strip have been protesting for seven weeks to be able to return to their historic homes they fled in 1948 and which later became part of Israel.

In the 2008 Gaza conflict that left about 1400 Palestinians and five Israelis dead, a United Nations fact-finding commission found both Israel and Hamas, the group which rules Gaza, committed war crimes.

Since the Gaza rallies began on 30 March, more than 100 Palestinian demonstrators have been martyred by cross-border Israeli army gunfire.

Safadi called on the global community to shoulder its moral, humanitarian and legal responsibilities and launch an independent worldwide investigation into Israel's massacre against civilians in Gaza and demanded protection of the Palestinian people from the Israeli occupation's policies. There are no reported injuries from the strikes, to the Jerusalem Post.

Netanyahu referred to a movie showing Palestinians at the security fence in Gaza, saying "Now if you don't believe me, or if you don't believe the leaders of Hamas, just take a look at this video. Canada calls for an immediate independent investigation to thoroughly examine the facts on the ground - including any incitement, violence, and the excessive use of force".

Mr. Trudeau said Israel's use of "excessive force" was "inexcusable" and joined British Prime Minister Theresa May and United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in calling for an immediate independent investigation. It says those approaching the fence have used explosive devices and firebombs, while soldiers have been shot at.
