The Israel Police is preparing for the U.S. embassy move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem with thousands of policemen deployed through the city. At 4:00 P.M. (Israel Time), the official ceremony will take place at the U.S. Consulate in the Arnona neighborhood of Jerusalem, which will officially become the U.S. embassy this week

Palestinians throughout the West Bank and Jerusalem were urged to turn out en masse to protest the embassy move and take part in Tuesday's 70th anniversary of the Nakba, or “catastrophe,” as Palestinians term Israel’s creation.

In Ramallah and El Bireh, the marches started at 11 A.M. and proceed to the Qalandiyah Checkpoint near Jerusalem. Marchers also set out from other cities, including Bethlehem, Hebron, Nablus and Jericho.\https://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/u-s-embassy-gaza-protests-and-nakba-day-live-updates-1.6078190

Democracy Now!


Live now: @sharifkouddous is reporting from Gaza, where the Israeli military has killed at least 30 Palestinians today: “No one is carrying any weapons here, there are no bullets being fired by Palestinians on Israeli soldiers… and yet, these killings continue”


Sharif Abdel Kouddous (@sharifkouddous) on Palestinians nonviolently approaching the border in Gaza: “This is a way of pushing their bodies up against their confinement” #DNlive


The Israeli military has been dropping tear gas from drones against Palestinians in Gaza today, Kouddous reports: "This also has been a trend, of Israel experimenting its tools of occupation on the bodies of Palestinians. These tools are usually exported elsewhere" #DNlive


Trump's Jerusalem embassy decision is a "huge insult" to the Palestinians and is among the driving factors behind the Gaza protests, says @sharifkouddous. "There is a sense that the very core of the Palestinian cause is under threat"


"This is a mass movement of all sectors of the Palestinian society," says @sharifkouddous on the Gaza protests underway. "There are women committees, youth committees, civil society committees, legal advocates, all of them… making decisions on how to run this movement." #DNlive

Sharif Kouddous

Death toll in Gaza today rises to 52, over 2,400 wounded. At Shifa hospital a doctor who worked there for 17 years said he had never seen a day like this.

1. DENIED

U.S. Blocks U.N. Call for Probe Into 58 Gaza Deaths

IBRAHEEM ABU MUSTAFA
The United States blocked a United Nations Security Council statement drafted Monday that called for an independent investigation into Monday’s killing of at least 58 Palestinians along the Israeli-Gaza border. The deaths, alongside some 2,700 people who were injured, made Monday the deadliest day in Gaza since 2014. The protests erupted on the same day as the opening of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem—a move that outraged Palestinians and many in the Muslim world. The statement, vetoed by the U.S., said in an initial draft: “The Security Council expresses its outrage and sorrow at the killing of Palestinian civilians exercising their right to peaceful protest. The Security Council calls for an independent and transparent investigation into these actions to ensure accountability.” After the scores of deaths on Monday, White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah blamed Hamas, refused to criticize Israel, and said: “Israel has a right to defend itself.”
