France says Middle East is 'explosive,' disagrees with United States policy

France says Middle East is 'explosive,' disagrees with United States policy

The Palestinians have said that they believe the participation of diplomats of European countries in opening the Embassy of the United States "a serious violation of worldwide law".

The Arab League called Thursday for an worldwide probe into alleged crimes by Israeli forces against Palestinians following mass protests on the Gaza border that saw dozens of demonstrators killed.

Israel and the United States said Hamas - which rules Gaza - instigated the violence, an allegation denied by the militant group, which opposes Israel's existence.

Unite Union is calling on all supporters of human rights to join the rally at 2pm this Saturday in Auckland's Aotea Square to protest Israel's crime against the Palestinian people.

"We stress to the Zionist enemy and its leaders that the resistance movements whose people are participating in this peaceful movement with all awareness and concern for our people can respond with all force", it said.

"It urges all parties concerned to act with restraint and work for a negotiated and acceptable resolution of the dispute", he said in a statement.

'Horrific' school bus crash in New Jersey
At least two canine units were searching the woods along the roadside Thursday afternoon, but it wasn't clear why. The crash involving the bus and a truck occurred in Mount Olive Township at about 10:20 a.m., authorities said.

The Arab foreign ministers' meeting in Cairo came after Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi on Wednesday said his government was communicating with both sides "so that this bloodshed would stop".

Haley, however, blamed the violence on "those who reject the existence of the state of Israel".

Lebanon's delegation said its Foreign Ministry had sent a letter to the International Criminal Court demanding it "undertake measures" to hold to account those responsible for the killings of Palestinians.

Hamas denies Israeli accusations it orchestrated the demonstrations, saying it supports them but that they were organised independently.

A senior Palestinian official on Wednesday criticized US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley's speech at the Security Council the day before as "a total disconnect" with the reality.

Asked whether an investigation was warranted, Boutin replied: "We all work for the secretary general, so we would echo his call for an independent investigation".
