Foreign Affairs Minister Simon Coveney said earlier expressed his "profound shock" at the killings in Gaza and said that nothing he had seen from the protesters had justified that response from Israeli troops.

The draft statement, obtained by The Associated Press, also expressed "outrage and sorrow" at the killings, sought an "independent and transparent investigation", and called on all sides to exercise restraint.

Similarly, British Prime Minister Theresa May said the use of live fire by Israeli forces was "deeply troubling".

Some 58 Palestinian protesters were killed and over 1,200 wounded by Israeli gunfire on May 14 - the culmination of a weekslong protest against Israel.

"It is the legitimate right of the Palestinians to protest their situation for 70 years and today is the commemoration of the Nakba, the catastrophe in which the Palestinian people were dispossessed". You are powerful, but you are not right.

Djilali said it was ironic that Jews would persecute Palestinians after being persecuted themselves by the Nazis, and that they were forgetting the teachings of peace in the Jewish Torah.

Mr Howlin said the Government should be seeking to act alongside the European Union but if that isn't possible then we "have to consider what we do independently". The juxtaposition of violence on the Gaza border and festivities attended by a Trump administration delegation - captured on split screens in TV broadcasts around the world - briefly drew attention to the plight of Gaza and its 2 million people. "It has become part of the problem, not part of the solution". Hours later, Israel responded by expelling the Turkish consul in Jerusalem. He told the Dáil that Ireland needed to pursue a policy of engagement and dialogue.

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

Anwar's release to be 'slightly' delayed
Anwar's prison sentence ends June 8, but without a royal pardon he would be barred from politics for five years. He has been in hospital for a few months recovering from a shoulder operation.

The grassroots progressive organization CREDO Mobile, which similarly has been reticent to talk about the issue to its 3.5 million members, signal-boosted statements on its Twitter page, condemning the Israeli military's behavior in Gaza. "The peace plan will be introduced at the appropriate time".

He supports an independent global investigation of events at the Gaza border yesterday.

On Monday alone, almost 60 people were killed in the deadliest day of violence since a 2014 war.

"The blockade of Gaza is inhumane and must end", he added. But her brother Ammar, 11, took the baby to the border - a flashpoint for violence - after mistakenly thinking Miss al-Ghandour was there with the child's grandmother, Heyam.

"Our view as a government is that you solve conflict with dialogue and dialogue requires engagement and it requires an interlocular".

"It is in everyone's interests for peace and stability to prevail in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories".

KELEMEN: The Trump administration blocked a United Nations statement that would have called for an independent investigation.
