USA outnumbered as it vetoes United Nations vote on Jerusalem

USA outnumbered as it vetoes United Nations vote on Jerusalem

The Future Movement Tuesday condemned the US position in a statement after its parliamentary bloc's meeting, saying it was biased toward Israel and was a flagrant violation of worldwide resolutions in support of the Palestinian right and the rights of the Palestinian people.

The Israeli military says there's no way of proving what killed him and insists that no live ammunition during the demonstration.

A statement issued by Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein said that Israel's killing of wheelchair-bound Ibrahim Abu Thuraya was "incomprehensible".

The U.N. human rights office said Abu Thurayeh was among hundreds of Palestinians who marched across farmland toward the fence separating Gaza from Israel, and appeared to have been shot in the head when he was 65 feet from the barrier.

The Israeli military statement said "numerous requests" for information on Abu Thurayeh's wounds had not been answered and that "if additional details are received, they will be examined and studied".

Ryanair pilots in Portugal suspend strike, union to negotiate
The Impact trade union is looking for further reassurances from the airline before calling off its planned walkout on Wednesday. Ryanair has offered to meet with IMPACT on Tuesday, and has called on the unions to call off threatened action next week.

Foreign ministry sources said that Çavuşoğlu, who is now attending a tripartite meeting with his Iranian and Azerbaijani counterparts in Baku, was planning to start his USA journey from Istanbul.

Palestinian health officials said Abu Thraya, 29, was shot in the head while demonstrating in Gaza.

Global law strictly regulates the use of force in the context of protests and demonstrations, and the lethal use of firearms should only be employed as the last resort when strictly unavoidable in order to protect life, Zeid said.

He said he hopes for "overwhelming support" telling the Trump administration that the global community doesn't accept the US position, which he said violates worldwide law and Security Council and General Assembly resolutions. The status of the city has been one of the biggest obstacles to a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians for generations. The U.N decision was rejected 14 to 1, leaving the USA alone in the global arena.

In a letter dated December 13, Trump expressed gratitude for the gesture and satisfaction that Israelis welcomed his recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of their country - which apparently earned him the honor.
