UAE condemns Israel's 'excessive' use of force

The UAE has condemned the Israeli occupations use of excessive force against unarmed Palestinians.

Dr. Anwar bin Mohammed Gargash, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, said the US’s decision to transfer their embassy to Jerusalem has put obstacles in the peace process.

He said the decision is a violation of the historic and permanent rights of the Palestinian people in Jerusalem.

Dozens of protesters were killed by Israeli troops at the Gaza border earlier this week as the US officially relocated its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Dr. Gargash also called for an international probe to hold accountable those responsible for the massacre.
