Pompeo Urges Palestinians To Rejoin Peace Talks

Pompeo from Jordan: US Open to Two-Party Solution to Palestinian-Israeli Conflict

Israel's military argues that the border protests are part of a long-running conflict with Gaza's ruling Hamas, which it considers a terror group.

We're certainly open to a two-party solution as a likely outcome.

In the first incident on Sunday, two men "attempted to infiltrate" into Israel from the southern Gaza Strip, the military said in a statement.

One of the judges said no other court in the world would address the question of rules of engagement during a conflict but no decision was taken on Monday and the court will reconvene before the judges make their decision. There was no claim of responsibility from any terrorist group in Gaza. But it has defended the shrinking permit numbers from Gaza, saying Hamas exploits travelers to smuggle money or weapons. He said an exception was Friday, when soldiers opened fire at a large crowd that attempted to break through the border fence, killing three people.

Israel is required to withdraw from all the territories seized in the war under UN Security Council Resolution 242, adopted months after the Six-Day War, in November 1967, but the Tel Aviv regime has defied that piece of global law ever since. No Israeli soldiers or civilians have been injured in the nonviolent protests.

She urged all members of the global community, including the European Union and the United Nations, to do justice to the Palestinian people and curb Israeli lawlessness.

The officer spoke on condition of anonymity under military guidelines.

Israel says some of those protesting have tried to damage the border fence or plant explosives along it. Others have hurled improvised explosives and firebombs at soldiers, while others have flown kites with burning rags attached to set Israeli fields on fire.

According to experts, the main goal of the President of the Palestinian national authority Mahmoud Abbas consolidate his power.

Israel has refused any right of return for Palestinians who were expelled or fled and became refugees after the country declared independence in 1948, fearing it would lose its Jewish majority.

The rights groups that petitioned the high court said that even if protests turn into riots, lethal force against unarmed demonstrators can only be used a last resort - in the event of a life-threatening situation.

Israel usually points a number of hundred thousand entry permits a 12 months for West Bankers, starting from day passes to these legitimate for a number of months, for work, well being care, research and different functions.
