Gaza Crisis: Israel launches new strikes on Hamas

Gaza Crisis: Israel launches new strikes on Hamas

Hamas' chief in the Gaza Strip vowed, on Wednesday, to use military force against Israel if the blockade on the region continues.

Abbas also recalled the Palestinian ambassador from Washington this week, cementing an earlier decision to halt contacts with the administration and casting growing doubt on Trump's ambitions to broker an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal.

On May 14, Egypt dispatched humanitarian aid, food, relief and medical supplies to Gaza while keeping the Rafah crossing open for individuals and those injured in the Israeli attacks on the strip.

The Arab foreign ministers on Thursday called for an worldwide probe into alleged crimes by Israeli forces against Palestinians following mass protests on the Gaza border that resulted in the killing of dozens of demonstrators.

But right-wing Israeli governments and Palestinian extremists have pushed the limits and Trump has shown no desire for neutrality; he sided squarely with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by choosing to relocate the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, viewed by both Israelis and Palestinians as their capital.

Abul Gheit warned that Arab relations with countries that move their embassies to the contested city of Jerusalem may be reconsidered.

He also suggested that members of the Arab League summon USA ambassadors "to remind them of the Arab rejection" of the United States move, which was made despite near universal consensus that the final status of the city should be decided in a final peace settlement between the Palestinians and Israel.

Meanwhile, his domestic Hamas rivals in Gaza have emerged without tangible achievements from weekly border protests in which more than 100 Palestinians were killed and hundreds wounded by Israeli fire since late March. Aboul Gheit called on the global community, represented by the Security Council, to act as soon as possible to protect the Palestinians and stop the indiscriminate killing of them by the Israeli occupation forces. One Israeli soldier has been reported wounded.

Palestinian security sources confirmed the target was a Hamas base, saying there were no reports of injuries.

He said the group used civilians as human shield to launch attacks against the Israeli military personnel guiding the border, prompting the Israeli forces to defend themselves.

Israel has rejected criticism over Monday's violence, with the United States strongly backing its ally and blaming Hamas for the deaths.

- Demanding from the Security Council, the UN General Assembly, the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Human Rights Council and its rapporteurs and the High Commissioner for Human Rights to take the necessary to establish an worldwide commission of inquiry to probe the recent Gaza events. The riots left 60 individuals dead in some of the bloodiest violence in the area since the 2014 war between Israel and Hamas.

Lastly, the Israeli prime minister commented on statements from Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar and Mahmoud al Zahar, a co-founder of Hamas, saying he agreed with their messages.
