Gaza health facilities brace for protests ahead

Ivanka Trump Has 'Great Joy' Going to Jerusalem Embassy Opening on Monday

"With blanket support from the United States, Israel has been given a free hand to persist in the total annexation and isolation of Palestinian Jerusalem and pursue the flagrant historical, political, cultural, demographic, and geographic transformation of the occupied city, erasing its Palestinian presence and identity".

The protests are building to a climax on May 15, the day Palestinians call the "Nakba" or "Catastrophe", marking the displacement of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians in the conflict surrounding the creation of Israel in 1948.

United States President Donald Trump will address around 800 American and Israeli dignitaries at the ceremonial opening of the American embassy in Jerusalem by video tomorrow, the USA ambassador said. Israeli forces on Saturday blew up what they said was a Hamas terror tunnel at the Gaza border. Trump has said the opening is meant to coincide with the 70th anniversary of Israel's establishment.

The military said protesters were "violent, burning tyres and hurling rocks" and that it "will not allow any harm to the security infrastructure or security fence and will continue standing by its mission to defend and ensure the security of the citizens of Israel and Israeli sovereignty, as necessary".

The incursion into Kerem Shalom took place during a weekly mass protest in which thousands of Palestinians gathered along the Israel-Gaza border.

Until now, the vast majority of Gaza's protesters have been peaceful and made no attempt to break through the fence.

Haniya is expected to return to Gaza later on Sunday.

Gaza Health ministry said in an official statement that 49 Palestinians were killed and more than 8,000 injured by Israeli army gunfire since the beginning of the marches.

It is being reported by Barak Ravid of Israel's Channel 10 news that Hungary, the Czech Republic and Romania blocked a joint European Union statement criticizing the relocation of the USA embassy to Jerusalem.

He said Shifa has been badly affected by a decade-long Israeli-Egyptian blockade imposed after the Islamic militant group Hamas assumed control of Gaza. Most of the world maintains embassies in Tel Aviv, saying the Jerusalem issue must first be resolved.

Abbas, who for years had banked on the USA to persuade Israel to cede land for a Palestinian state, felt betrayed and halted contacts with the Trump administration. More than half the visitors to FOZ are Israelis. But just a month later Trump told Netanyahu he had taken Jerusalem "off the table" and that "we don't have to talk about it anymore".
