The White House has released a statement in complete support of Israel over the palestinian deaths that resulted prior to the unveiling of the U.S. Embassy.
The deadly protests emerged preceding the opening of the U.S. Embassy.
As reported by thehill.com
At least 37 people were killed and more than 1,000 wounded during an attempt by Palestinians to cross the border from Gaza to Israel.
The New York Times, citing the Health Ministry in Gaza, put the death toll at 37.
Protests on the border have been taking place for weeks but appeared to rise in intensity ahead of the scheduled opening on Monday of the new U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem.
President Trump decided to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a controversial step opposed by other nations given the disputed status of Jerusalem, which both Israel and Palestinians recognize as their capital.
What are your thoughts? We all know the past administration would have most assuredly blamed Israel for the loss of life. What do you think about the Trump admin’s response? Please share and comment
