Mike Pompeo Calls Israeli-Palestinian Peace 'Incredible Priority' for US

Mike Pompeo Calls Israeli-Palestinian Peace 'Incredible Priority' for US”

The demonstrations preceded a call by Hamas officials for protests against Israel and are calling for the return of Palestinian land.

"Two Palestinians, who crossed the security fence in Gaza's southern border and threw explosives at a military patrolling vehicle, were shot dead", Avichay Adraee, the Israeli military spokesman claimed in a statement.

In remarks broadcast on state television, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei reiterated longstanding calls for the U.S. to "leave" the Middle East, which he called Iran's home, and said any power seeking to challenge Iran would be defeated.

The weekly marches are aimed in part at trying to break a border blockade of Gaza, imposed by Israel and Egypt after Hamas overran the territory in 2007, a year after winning Palestinian parliament elections. For more than a decade the group has tightly controlled Gaza, quashing dissent.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is expected to deliver a lengthy opening speech at the meeting, which is held under the title, "Jerusalem and the protection of Palestinian legitimacy", in the presence of Arab, Islamic and global delegations.

"The parties will ultimately make the decision as to what the correct resolution is", Pompeo told reporters at a joint news conference with Safadi.

Thirty-nine protesters have been killed and more than 1,700 wounded by Israeli army fire over the past month. We urge the Palestinians to return to that political dialogue.

Activists and rebels say Syrian government forces are preparing for an assault on Deraa, one of the last areas under rebel control.

Abbas did not refer to those reports specifically, but said he has been assured that Saudi Arabia remains supportive of the Palestinian positions. "We can not give up in our efforts and there is no viable alternative". Such rules provide greater leeway for the use of lethal force than those governing law enforcement practices.

But Israel argues that Palestinians don't have an inherent right of entry to pre-1967 Israel and east Jerusalem, their traditional political, cultural and commercial hub, or to travel between the West Bank and Gaza.

"We do believe the Israelis have a right to defend themselves", he said at a press availability with Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi, according to Reuters.

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. And, a peace plan devised by Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner and his special envoy for global negotiations Jason Greenblatt appears to be on hold.
