The Minister expressed his honest thanks to the sisterly Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for calling for this meeting at this delicate moment to discuss the risky escalation on the Palestinian territories, which pose a threat to the entire region in light of the use of force and the unacceptable targeting of the Palestinian people by the Israeli occupying forces.

They added that they called for the establishment of an independent worldwide committee of investigation into the crimes perpetrated by Israel in Gaza.

Lieberman halted Israel's cooperation with the council during his stint as foreign minister in 2012.

"We must strive for a future where Israel and Palestine thrive as states in which all are equally respected, and where civil society is able to play its constructive role", said Mohammed. The Palestinians, who seek east Jerusalem as capital of their hoped-for state and vehemently oppose the USA move, recalled their ambassadors to four European countries that had supported it.

The council is due to consider a draft resolution calling for the urgent dispatch of "an independent, worldwide commission of inquiry" - the UN's highest-level of investigation.

"No condemnation is enough of the brutal massacre of women and children by Israeli forces", she added. "Our prayers go out to the families of those who died and to the Israeli soldiers who are in harm's way as well as those Israelis living on the border of Gaza who had to evacuate their homes".

Senate Committee Expected to Approve Haspel to Lead CIA
McCain, who has been away from Washington all year as he battles brain cancer, urged the Senate not to vote for Haspel. Haspel, the CIA's acting director, earned support from the top Democrat on the Intelligence Committee, Sen.

Israel has, with support from the USA administration, accused Hamas of using civilians as human shields for attacks across the fence and to distract from Gaza's internal problems.

Palestinians and rights groups say protesters are being shot despite posing no threat to Israeli soldiers on the other side of the heavily guarded fence.

Al-Quds reported that Bosnia refuses to extradite a suspect in the 2016 killing of Mohammed Zouari, a Hamas member, in Tunisia.

Special rallies and public gatherings will be organized across Pakistan to express solidarity with the oppressed Palestinians and to condemn Israel's state terrorism in Gaza.

The status of Jerusalem al-Quds is the thorniest issue in the decades-long Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) will hold an extraordinary summit in Istanbul on Friday to discuss "the latest serious developments in the State of Palestine".
