On Monday, Palestinians all over the world commemorated the 70th anniversary of the Nakba, or Catastrophe: the systematic eviction of more than 700,000 Palestinians from their homes and communities before and in the aftermath of the State of Israel's Declaration of Independence on May 14, 1948.

Amidror said that he does not see the Palestinians gaining anything by marching on the fence in Gaza, and that Israel is determined to prevent Hamas from destroying the existing security barrier and the one Israel is building on the Gaza border to prevent any infiltration - either underground or overland - from the coastal strip.

In a statement released on Monday, African Union Commission chairman Moussa Faki "strongly condemned the disproportionate use of force by the Israeli army, which resulted in the killing of over 50 Palestinian demonstrators, while many more were wounded".

Notably, Kenya was among 21 countries that failed to vote at the UN General Assembly in a resolution aimed at condemning Washington's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

On Monday, an estimated 35,000 people participated in demonstrations in Gaza and hundreds of people in the West Bank cities of Ramallah, Bethlehem, Hebron, Jericho, Nablus, and East Jerusalem, as part of the "Great March of Return" as well as in protest of the relocation of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, he said. She said Namibia reiterates its longstanding position that Jerusalem remains the internationally recognised capital of the two states.

Asteroid the Size of City Block to Pass Earth Today
The Asteroid steps from 60 to 130 meters, also moves at a rate of over 28,000 miles per hour , WeekFacts.com reported on Saturday. This might seem like a long way away from us, but it is actually one of the closest known approaches of an asteroid of this size.

The United Nations is working with Israel and the Palestinian National Authority to bring in life-saving assistance despite the destruction and extensive damage to the crossing, he said.

Palestinian officials accused Israel of committing a "horrific massacre" and called on the worldwide community to immediately intervene.

Amidror, in a conference call put together by the Israel Project, was referring to the decision of both those states to recall their ambassadors following Monday's bloody events in the Gaza Strip. While South Africa and Turkey recalled their ambassadors to Israel because of the US decision that has been widely criticised by its Western allies, some African countries sent representatives to witness the official opening of the embassy in disputed Jerusalem.

The US and Guatemalan moves break with decades of global consensus.
