Gaza carnage draws worldwide condemnation!

Wanton killings on Gaza border by Israeli forces have drawn worldwide condemnation with the US Security Council meeting to discuss the Middle East situation.

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian described the situation as "explosive" and criticised the United States for unilateral acts in the region and Israel for what he said was an unjustified level of violence.Thousands of Gaza residents turned out on Tuesday for the funerals of Palestinians killed by Israeli troops a day earlier, in the bloodiest day for Palestinians since the 2014 Gaza conflict.

"The situation in the Middle East is explosive, violence is doing the talking, war could loom," Le Drian told lawmakers in parliament.

Alistair Burt, UK Minister for the Middle East, has said the US needs to show greater understanding of the root causes of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, in a rare criticism of Britain's closest ally.

Like almost all other nations, and especially most of its Western allies, Britain disagrees with US President Donald Trump's decision to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv.

During the debate in the British parliament, many lawmakers condemned Israel's use of live fire against protesters. Some also strongly criticised US policy and said Trump's visit to Britain in July should be cancelled.

Turkey told Israel's ambassador to leave the country on Tuesday and President Tayyip Erdogan described Monday's bloodshed as genocide and called Israel a terrorist state. The government declared three days of mourning.

Government spokesman Bekir Bozdag told parliament on Tuesday that Turkey held the United States equally accountable for Monday's violence.

"The blood of innocent Palestinians is on the hands of the United States," he said.
