U.S. blocks UN resolution for an intl. investigation into Gaza killing

U.S. blocks UN resolution for an intl. investigation into Gaza killing
World  - Israel faced widespread condemnation on Monday after its forces killed at least 55 Palestinians in Gaza during protests coinciding with the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem.

Many countries including Britain, France and Russia had already slammed the U.S. decision to move the embassy, while 128 nations have backed a UN resolution condemning Washington's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

The U.S. came to the defense of its ally Monday, blaming Hamas for the violence and blocking a resolution at the UN calling for an international investigation, according to AFP.

Meanwhile, the UN Security Council is set to meet Tuesday to discuss the mass killings of Palestinians by Israeli forces near the Gaza border.

Kuwait called for the session after more than 50 Palestinians were killed by Israeli fire amid mass protests Monday.
