Since Dec. 6 when U.S. President Donald Trump announced his decision to move the U.S. embassy, some 155 Palestinians have been killed and 12,000 injured protesting the move by Israeli forces, she said.

"The Congress party, reaffirms its solidarity with the people of Palestine in their just struggle for the creation of an independent state of Palestine within secure borders".

"[Egypt] unequivocally warned him that if this continues, Israel will respond and take much harsher steps and Egypt will stand aside and not help", Katz told Israel Radio Wednesday.

The Palestinians said they consider the participation a "grave violation of worldwide law".

Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon said in a press briefing on Tuesday that the UN Security Council must condemn Hamas for committing war crimes.

Hamas in a statement on Thursday signaled it could resort to arms in response to this week's violence, but many analysts see that as unlikely for now.

Commission gears up against air polluters, sends six countries to court
The European Commission is taking Britain, France , Germany , Hungary, Italy and Romania to the EU Court of Justice for failing to respect air quality limits.

Romania's government has expressed interest in relocating its embassy to Israel's capital as well, although its president, who is in charge of foreign policy, opposes the government plan.

Since March 30, Palestinians have been holding mass rallies near the Gaza Strip border, known as the Great March of Return. According to Israeli sources many of those killed were affiliated with Hamas and other terrorist organizations.

Israel and the US blame the militant group Hamas for endangering civilians in Gaza by inciting them to protest - a view echoed in Canada by the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs, which requested an urgent meeting with Trudeau to convey its concern about his response to the violence.

Friday's special session will begin at 0800 GMT Friday in Geneva to consider "the deteriorating human rights situation in the occupied Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem", the spokesman said in a statement. The U.N. Security Council met on Tuesday over the violence.

The European Union objected to the embassy move.
