Violence in Gaza

May 16, 2018

Email

ON Monday there was a massacre of Palestinians in the wake of the US decision to open its embassy in Jerusalem. This is the deadliest event in Palestine since 2014.

The unarmed Palestinians were protesting near the Gaza border when the Zionist forces unleashed fire killing 60 people and wounding hundred others.

Donald Trump’s Middle East policy is turning into a nightmare for Muslims in the region as he seeks to appease Israel at the cost of ignoring demographic reality.

His decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital has been opposed virtually by the whole world.

The blood of all these martyred Palestinians is on Mr Trump’s hands, for he has destroyed the prospect of a two-state solution.
