White House Backs Israel's Right to Defend Itself Against Gaza Border Riots

White House calls deaths in Gaza ‘propaganda’ by Hamas

The White House on Monday said Hamas is exclusively to blame for the deaths of Palestinians at the hands of Israeli forces, amid demonstrations in Gaza against the new United States embassy in Jerusalem.

"What I'm saying is that we believe that Hamas as an organization is engaged in cynical action that's leading to these deaths", Shah answered. "This is a propaganda attempt", White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah said.

Palestinian officials say Israeli military killed 55 people and wounded 2,700 in the deadliest violence in Gaza since 2014.

The White House says responsibility for dozens of deaths in Gaza coinciding with the opening of the new U.S. Embassy in contested Jerusalem "rests squarely with Hamas".

RCMP said officers briefly detained the woman, who is known to police in the area, and issued a date for her to appear in court. After a bit of time, the woman reaches for a pile of napkins, backs away from the counter and proceeds to drop her trousers .

"Hamas is intentionally and cynically provoking this response", he added.

The latest violence between these two rivals followed the USA opening of a controversial embassy in Jerusalem. "Look, this is a propaganda attempt". He also said the "large volume of live fire" used by Israeli forces was "extremely concerning".

President Donald Trump had announced the embassy move on 6 December, which immediately sparked violent protests. The White House continued to defend Trump's decision and the move on Monday amid the violence.
