Ranked as the world's seventh-largest arms exporter, Israel has developed expertise in making non-lethal weapons to subdue protests in Gaza and the West Bank. "Our prayers go out to the families of those who died and to the Israeli soldiers who are in harm's way as well as those Israelis living on the border of Gaza who had to evacuate their homes".

- Appreciating the efforts of the Arab Republic of Egypt and thanking it for easing conditions inside the Gaza Strip.

Zeid said protesters' "actions alone do not appear to constitute the imminent threat to life or deadly injury which could justify the use of lethal force".

Its forces have killed 116 Palestinians since a campaign of protests on the Gaza-Israel border was launched on March 30.

"This year we celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights", she said, noting that the principles and standards enshrined in the Universal Declaration should guide the search for a durable solution to the question of Palestine, a solution that must be based on global law, the legitimate aspirations of Palestinians and Israelis, as well as dialogue for reconciliation and for accountability. His words; "This is not peaceful resistance", he said.

The UN human rights chief on Friday slammed Israel's deadly reaction to protests along the Gaza border as "wholly disproportionate", backing calls for an worldwide investigation.

Arab League fails to agree on US envoy recalls

Dr. Loubani, who was field testing 3D printing tourniquets, said he was shot by an Israeli sniper while standing 25 metres away from the protests and surrounded by orange vested paramedics.

Now Hamas has used its supporters to besiege its borders with Israel to force a mass excursion into that state.

Minister of Foreign Affairs participates in the Meeting of the Council of the Arab League at the level of Foreign Ministers in Cairo. The Palestinians held a one-day general strike and called for three days of mourning for the victims.

Meanwhile, Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad Al Maliki suggested on Thursday that Arab countries should recall their ambassadors to the United States in response to Washington moving its Israel embassy to Jerusalem. The Palestinians, who seek east Jerusalem as capital of their hoped-for state and vehemently oppose the US move, recalled their ambassadors to four European countries that had supported it.

"Today, we follow through on this recognition and open our embassy in the historic and sacred land of Jerusalem". Romania, the Czech Republic and Honduras have said they are considering doing the same.
