Turkey's Erdogan says will take Jerusalem resolution to UN General Assembly

Turkey's Erdogan says will take Jerusalem resolution to UN General Assembly

Palestinian health officials said Abu Thuraya was shot in the head while demonstrating Friday in Gaza amid unrest following President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Lebanon deplores the United States' use of its veto at the United Nations Security Council to kill a draft resolution calling on the U.S.to withdraw its Jerusalem decision, the Foreign Ministry said this week.

Egypt had put forward the draft which was backed by all 14 other Security Council members.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan made the appeal yesterday during a joint news conference with Djibouti President Ismail Omar Guelleh, a day after the United States vetoed such a resolution in the UN Security Council. They are, however, seen to carry political weight.

"The president will be watching this vote carefully and has requested I report back on those who voted against us", she wrote in a letter reports Israel based Haaretz.

Haley's tweet on Tuesday was not her first time warning that the USA would be "taking names" at the U.N. She similarly used the line in January, shortly after taking office, when she advised countries not to cross the U.S.

He said the unions also reminded management they could reactive their intent to strike in the absence of a "timely agreement". The news came ahead of Ryanair's meeting later in the day with Impact, the union representing Irish pilots.

A statement issued by Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein, the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, said wheelchair-bound Ibrahim Abu Thurayeh was shot in the head by Israeli security forces close to the border fence with Israel on Friday.

Knowing in advance that the US would veto Monday's Security Council resolution, the Israeli delegation refrained from mounting the kind of intensive lobbying effort it has in the past in such situations. Thursday's meeting will be a resumption of that session.

US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley stated that what "we witnessed here in the Security Council is an insult", adding: "It won't be forgotten".

Trump's Jerusalem decision upended decades of US policy on Jerusalem, and has threatened to derail future peace talks between the Israelis and Palestinians - talks that Trump has vowed to broker.

Jerusalem remains at the heart of the Israel-Palestine conflict, with Palestinians hoping that East Jerusalem - now occupied by Israel - might eventually serve as the capital of a Palestinian state.
