"We are deeply disappointed the government's statement ignores Hamas' direct responsibility for recent violence on the Israel-Gaza border", Mr. Fogel said.

On Monday, 62 Palestine demonstrators were killed and thousands were injured by Israeli forces along the Gaza border, as per Palestine Health ministry.

The Alliance for the Peace of Jerusalem is urging individuals to sign "Our Hope for Peace: A Statement on Israel, the Nations and the Gospel" after deadly violence erupted in Gaza following the move of the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

The death toll led to worldwide condemnations of Israel and calls for an independent investigation.

Israel has justified its actions, saying they are necessary to stop mass infiltrations from the blockaded Palestinian enclave run by Islamist movement Hamas.

"We must strive for a future where Israel and Palestine thrive as states in which all are equally respected, and where civil society is able to play its constructive role", said Mohammed.

Mohammed said Thursday that peace requires political will and courage from all sides.

Israel, which has faced blistering worldwide criticism over its response, is likely to latch on to the remarks to bolster its claims that Hamas has used the weekly border protests as cover to stage attacks. No one was hurt by the gunfire.

YWN reported Monday that Hamas chief Ismail Haniyeh and other top Hamas leaders traveled to Egypt where they received stern warnings not to instigate the protests.

Calling for "dialogue, justice, and peace", Francis said violence "has never led to peace".

"We call for a credible worldwide investigation into the crimes committed by the occupation", Aboul Gheit said following an emergency meeting of Arab foreign ministers in Cairo to discuss the Palestinian cause.

The Arish General Hospital in Egypt continues receiving wounded Palestinians from the Gaza Strip for treatment.

The violence happened on the same day that the United States opened its Israel embassy in Jerusalem.

Calls for an independent probe into the deaths have come from many sides, including Britain, Germany, Canada and Switzerland.

The Kuwaiti draft resolution calls for measures to be taken to guarantee the safety and protection of the Palestinian civilian population, including through the deployment of "an global protection mission".

"This shameful draft resolution is a proposal to support Hamas's war crimes against Israel and the residents of Gaza who are being sent to die for the sake of preserving Hamas's rule", he added. It says those approaching the fence have used explosive devices and firebombs, while soldiers have been shot at. Only 3 were Islamic Jihad.
