Gaza tension as hundreds march towards fence with Israel

Gaza tension as hundreds march towards fence with Israel”

Indonesian President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) has denounced a unilateral plan by the United States to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Footage shows Palestinians carrying flags with the pan-arab colors as they prepared to commemorate the 70th annual Nakba Day, which follows Israel's Declaration of Independence in 1948.

However, the resolution is non-binding and the USA president has said he is "looking forward" to seeing the new embassy in Jerusalem this May.

"I must tell you that the bold decision by President Trump has prompted other countries, quite a few now, who are planning to move their embassy to Jerusalem as well", Netanyahu said last month. "The relocation has disrupted the peace process and has even threatened the peace itself".

"With the people of Indonesia, we will continue to fight for the Palestinians, who are always there in every breath of diplomacy of Indonesia", President Jokowi noted.

The leader of the Gaza Strip, a top-ranking Hamas member, foreshadowed a bloody confrontation between Palestinians and Israeli soldiers as weeks of border protests come to a head.

The Israeli army's violent response to the demonstrations has sparked outrage globally, as more than 2,000 Palestinians have been struck by live bullets, and 24 wounded had to undergo amputations after being denied Israeli permits to exit Gaza and receive treatment in the occupied West Bank. "So those two dates are a major cause for concern both for Israeli and Palestinian officials".
