Three Palestinian Terrorists Killed by IDF Along Gaza Strip Border

Three Palestinian Terrorists Killed by IDF Along Gaza Strip Border

Safadi said Jordan believes the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is the "main cause of instability in the region", calling the two-state solution the "only path" to peace.

Israeli troops fatally shot two Palestinians who infiltrated the country from Gaza and attacked soldiers with explosives Sunday night, and in a separate incident killed another Palestinian who tried to breach the border, the military said.

Israeli soldiers on Sunday killed three Palestinians on claims that they crossed or were attempting to cross the southern Gaza border on Sunday.

The rights groups say rules of engagement of law enforcement apply, under which officers can only resort to lethal force if their lives are in imminent danger.

But with the pending relocation of the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on May 14, the stalled Israeli-Palestinian peace process hovered in the background of the trip.

Amnesty International has called for an arms embargo against Israel, which it accused of carrying out a "murderous assault" on Palestinians participating in the protests.

The state claimed that the security forces' rules of engagement along the border corresponded with Israeli and global law, arguing that the legal basis for the petitions was "faulty and deficient".

Palestine has rejected USA peace-making efforts since President Donald Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as the Israeli capital.

"The parties will ultimately make the decision about what the right resolution is", he said.

The protests, dubbed the "Great March of Return", are to culminate in a mass gathering on the border on May 15, a day Palestinians mark as their "nakba", or catastrophe, to commemorate their mass uprooting during the 1948 war over Israel's creation.

"Either they give us everything or they take everything", Abbas said of Hamas.

Asked about the situation, Pompeo demurred, referring to "activities in Gaza over the past days and weeks".

The highly controversial decision also infuriated Palestinians, who regards the East Jerusalem al-Quds, which hosts the third holiest Muslim site, as the capital of a future state.

Although the White House sponsored a conference on aid to Gaza last month, the Palestinians did not attend.

"We do believe the Israelis have a right to defend themselves", he said.

This has called into question the utility of a USA peace plan being drawn up by the White House under the leadership of Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner, which even United States officials privately admit is far from ready.
