BRI­TISH PM URGES IS­RAEL TO END VI­O­LENT AT­TACKS AGAINST PALES­TINI­ANS

Daily Sabah (Turkey) - - Front Page -

BRI­TISH Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May said on Tues­day that Is­raeli ag­gres­sion should stop in the oc­cu­pied Pales­tinian ter­ri­to­ries.

Gaza ex­pe­ri­enced its blood­i­est mas­sacre since 2014 on Mon­day, as the Is­raeli mil­i­tary killed at least 62 Pales­tini­ans and wounded more than 2,400 oth­ers as pro­test­ers streamed to the fron­tier for the cli­max of a six-week demon­stra­tion as the United States pre­pared to open its em­bassy in Jerusalem.

Fol­low­ing her meet­ing with Pres­i­dent Re­cep Tayyip Er­doğan in Lon­don, the Bri­tish PM said that it is in ev­ery­one’s in­ter­est for peace and sta­bil­ity in the oc­cu­pied Pales­tinian ter­ri­to­ries and Is­rael and called for an in­de­pen­dent and trans­par­ent in­ves­ti­ga­tion of the lat­est events in Gaza.

She said that such vi­o­lence is de­struc­tive to peace ef­forts, and Is­rael’s use of live fire was deeply trou­bling.

Since the bor­der ral­lies be­gan on March 30, more than 100 Pales­tinian demon­stra­tors have been killed by cross-bor­der Is­raeli gun­fire, ac­cord­ing to the Pales­tinian Health Min­istry.
