USA on Saturday blocked a draft statement of the UN Security Council, urging them to investigate the Israeli shelling of the Palestinian participants of mass protests in the Gaza strip. This was reported by news Agency AFP, citing a diplomatic source in the Security Council.

Palestinian authorities say Israeli security forces killed on Friday at least 15 people, more than 750 were injured.

Some participants of the funeral of the victims of Palestinians took place on Saturday, called for “revenge”.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised the Israeli military opened fire on the Palestinians.

“Our soldiers have done, he said. – Israel acts vigorously and resolutely defending its sovereignty and the security of its citizens”.

The Palestinian authority announced on Saturday a day of mourning.

On Sunday, Netanyahu rejected the criticism of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who said that “strongly condemns the government of Israel for its inhuman attack”.

“The most moral army in the world will not listen to a lecture from the person, who for a number of years exposes civilians to indiscriminate bombing,” said the Israeli Prime Minister. Earlier, Netanyahu called Erdogan a man who “bombed Kurdish rural residents.”

UN Secretary-General, antónio Guterres, and the head of European diplomacy Federica Mogherini called for an “independent and transparent investigation” of the bombardment of Palestinians by the Israeli military.

“I don’t understand hypocrites, requiring the creation of the investigation Commission, wrote on Twitter, the Israeli defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman. They messed something up and decided that Hamas yesterday organized the Woodstock festival, and we need to give them flowers”.

The Palestinians established the tent camp protest along the Gaza strip, which are expected to operate for six weeks. Assume that in these camps will settle entire families – men, women and children.

According to the Israeli military, in camps settled about 30 thousand demonstrators.
