According to the Isreali narrative, Argentine players did not refuse to play in response to Israel's murder of over 120 Palestinians demonstrators in Gaza, or in response to what human rights groups call a shoot-to-kill-or-maim-policy. No.

Following a request by the Palestinians earlier today (Saturday) to hold an emergency meeting at the UN's General Assembly over what they are calling "an excessive use of force" by Israel, the United Nations is scheduled to vote as early as this Wednesday on a resolution on Gaza that will condemn Israel.

Israeli troops fired volleys of tear gas, including from drones, that sent protesters running for cover. "They are in charge of Gaza, and they use their resources not to help the people of Gaza but to wage war against Israel".

SNP CONFERENCE backed a motion on opposing the massacre of Palestinians in Gaza by Israeli military forces in recent months, in what turned into a fiery debate between the majority of delegates and John Mason MSP.

Many Iranians were adamant they were not anti-Israel but only wanted to support the Palestinians.

Soldiers fired tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse the crowds, and snipers used live ammunition to prevent a breach of the border fence.

Israel, with U.S. support, has described the protests as a ploy by Hamas to breach its border, and says that its lethal tactics have been necessary to prevent that.

Haniyyah highlighted the peaceful nature of the protests.

The friendly soccer match between Argentina's and Israel's national soccer teams scheduled in Jerusalem was cancelled, after Argentine players received greater threats than those previously made by ISIS, the Argentine Foreign Minister said during an interview with Radio Mitre, La Agencia Judia de Noticias reported Wednesday (Spanish link).

Israel's deadly tactics in confronting the protests have drawn worldwide condemnation.

More than 700,000 Palestinians were expelled or fled in the 1948 Mideast war over Israel's creation.

Critics say it amount to collective punishment of the territory's two million residents. Others have thrown fire bombs or tried to damage the fence. Rights groups have said Israel's open-fire rules are unlawful.

Israel and Egypt argue that they must maintain the blockade to contain Hamas and other militant groups, which have built weapons arsenals over the years, including short-range rockets.

On Thursday, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani called for the Muslim masses to take to the streets and protest the "tyrants" in honor of Quds Day.

Whitford responded to Mason by saying she would defend her right to criticise Israel, and called on the Scottish Government to back the establishment of a Palestinian state. Israel is mostly on the outside, looking in and scratching its head. The compound sits on the ruins of biblical temples and is revered by Jews as the holiest site of their religion.

This year's event saw the usual burning of flags and chants of "Death to America" and "Death to Israel", as well as a huge Donald Trump figure being hanged from a crane.
