We condemn the barbaric and senseless killing of more than 50 Palestinian protestors by Israeli security forces during the recent clashes in Gaza.
Peace cannot emerge in the Middle East as long as the violence and oppression of the Palestinian people continue.
The killings coincided with the controversial relocation to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv of the United States Embassy in Israel.
US President Donald Trump has hence not only done nothing to contribute to peace between the two nations, but has instead inflamed passions further.
Both Israel and the US should be condemned by the international community for their actions.
Moreover, the violence must cease and immediate steps be taken to secure the independence of Palestine.
