  • Iran said today that new US sanctions on its central bank governor would only make Iranians

On May 14, one day before Palestinian commemorate 70 years of ongoing Nakba, or catastrophe, US and Israeli officials celebrated the opening of the USA embassy in Jerusalem as Israeli snipers shot and killed at least 61 Palestinian protesters, including eight children under 16 years old. Protesters at the Hamas-led demonstration in Gaza hurled projectiles at Israeli forces and lit tires on fire, choking the air with thick black smoke, as Israeli soldiers opened fire, killing more than 50 people.

Several Muslim-owned businesses in the St. Louis area also closed for 70 minutes around lunchtime to symbolize the number of years of Israeli occupation.

Among the dead from shooting or tear gas was an eight-month-old baby who died from tear gas that her family said she inhaled at a protest camp.

The meeting between Mr Coveney and Israeli ambassador Zeev Bokar took place between 08:00 and O8:30 BST on Tuesday.

"This is how determined they are to make the lives of the Palestinian people miserable", she said.

Tuesday's U.N. Security Council emergency meeting follows the deadliest day of violence in Gaza between Israel and the Palestinians in five years.

One of the leaders of the march‚ and former Muslim Judicial Council president‚ Sheik Ebrahim Gabriels said they "respected and honoured" the South African government's withdrawal of its ambassador from Israel and asked that the Israeli embassy in Pretoria be closed.

The date of Monday's embassy opening also angered Palestinians, coming the day before they commemorate their mass displacement in the 1948 war surrounding the creation of Israel.

Other speakers at the St. Louis protest said Americans need to be aware that their tax dollars, given to Israel, are used to fund violence against Palestinians. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday's confrontations were "the determined action of the IDF and the security forces prevented a breach into Israel's borders".

Israel said it is defending its border and accuses Hamas of trying to carry out attacks under the cover of the protests.

Boyd Barrett also called for the immediate expulsion of the Israeli ambassador to Ireland, a call that was taken up by other speakers at the event and the crowd.

"Who among us would accept this type of activity on your border?"

State broadcaster TRT said the ambassador was being told to leave.

- Lindiwe Sisulu, International Relations and Cooperation MinisterOn this one we are ready to differ with people who do not see the crisis in the way that we see it. Haley said during a UN Security Council session on Tuesday.
