Kuwait urges United Nations to condemn Israel and protect Palestinians

Kuwait urges United Nations to condemn Israel and protect Palestinians

Members of Students for Justice in Palestine held a protest at an event celebrating Israeli history Thursday, claiming it did not acknowledge Palestinians as indigenous to the region.

The UNSC draft said, "The Security Council expresses its outrage and sorrow at the killing of Palestinian civilians exercising their right to peaceful protest", adding, "The Security Council calls for an independent and transparent investigation into these actions to ensure accountability".

More than 2700 Palestinians were wounded in the crackdown, and Gaza's health ministry says eight children under the age of 16 were killed.

People from all over the world showed their solidarity with the people of Gaza after Israeli troops shot dead dozens of Palestinian protesters on the Gaza border on Monday when the high-profile opening of the USA embassy to Israel in Jerusalem raised the tension to boiling point after weeks of demonstrations.

The Kuwaiti draft resolution calls for measures to be taken to guarantee the safety and protection of the Palestinian civilian population, including through the deployment of "an global protection mission".

The increased tension comes as Israel's Independence Day approaches, with celebrations set to coincide with a ceremony marking the relocation of the US Embassy, scheduled for Monday, May 14.

The Minister of State for Foreign Affairs also called on the worldwide community to stop the violence against Palestinians and end Israeli occupation of the Palestinian Territories, state news agency Wam reported.

"Over the course of the next two days, I urge you all to reflect on how we can turn this vision into a reality", she said. It was noted as the bloodiest day for Palestinians since 2014. Capping weeks of protests, about 40,000 Gaza residents descended on the border area Monday.

Israel is unjustly and against any objective reasoning accused of using disproportionate force against Hamas.

"The Egyptians reportedly showed Hamas leaders a video that revealed Hamas members paying off civilians if they agreed to approach the border fence despite Israeli warnings that there would be deadly consequences".

"The United States deplores the loss of human life", she said.
