Arab League fails to agree on US envoy recalls

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) will hold an extraordinary summit in Istanbul on Friday to discuss "the latest serious developments in the State of Palestine".

The UN human rights chief on Friday backed calls for an global investigation into Israel's use of deadly force against protesters on the Gaza border, which he described as "wholly disproportionate".

Deadly protests at the Israel-Gaza border have waned over the past three days because Egypt has pressured Hamas to stop stoking the violent demonstrations, Fox News reported.

Palestinian envoy Riyad Mansour said on Tuesday he would begin negotiations to try to get the resolution adopted.

Since March 30, Palestinians have been holding the Great March of Return near the Gaza Strip border to mark the 70th anniversary of Nakba, the Palestinian exodus after Israel's declaration of independence in 1948.

The Arab League also called for an global investigation into the killings at an emergency meeting in Cairo on Thursday. It said the aim should be to "establish the facts and circumstances" around "alleged violations and abuses including those that may amount to war crimes and to identify those responsible".

Responding to criticism from the United Nations human rights chief at a debate that is likely to end by setting up an inquiry into recent violence, she said the Council had returned to its "worst form of anti-Israel obsession".

The Kuwaiti draft resolution calls for measures to be taken to guarantee the safety and protection of the Palestinian civilian population, including through the deployment of "an worldwide protection mission". "Make no mistake, Hamas is pleased with the results from yesterday", she added. United States representative Theodore Allegra also charged that the UN session was "blatantly taking sides and ignoring the real culprit for the recent outbreak of violence, the Hamas".

The news comes as a senior Hamas official admitted that 50 of the rioters killed Monday by Israeli soldiers in the Gaza Strip were members of the Islamist militant group. He said, "some of the demonstrators threw Molotov cocktails, used slingshots to throw stones, flew burning kites into Israel and attempted to use wire-cutters against the two fences between Gaza and Israel".
