USA: UN Middle East envoy condemns Gaza violence

United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Nikolay Mladenov condemned 'in the strongest possible terms the actions that have led to the loss of so many lives in Gaza', at a meeting of the UN Security Council in New York on Wednesday. Speaking via video link in Jerusalem, Mladenov criticised Israel for its failure to 'calibrate' the use of lethal force, while also... Еще singling out Hamas for creating 'provocations'. «The confluence of conflicts in the Middle East is raising tensions on multiple fronts» including «Israel-Palestine track», he concluded. The UN has held several meetings on the recent clashes at Gaza's border fence with Israel. The worst violence came on May 14, when the United States relocated its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. On that day alone, 60 demonstrators were killed. Since March 30 — the date when the 'Great March of Return' began — 112 Palestinians were killed and more than 13,000 injured by Israeli forces.
