    Gaza hospitals struggle to cope with high casualty toll

    Gaza hospitals struggle to cope with high casualty toll
    Fares Akram, Associated Press Updated 5:16 pm, Tuesday, May 15, 2018

    GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — Patients with gunshot wounds filled wards and hallways in Gaza’s under-equipped and overwhelmed main hospital Tuesday, with dozens still waiting in line for surgery a day after Israeli soldiers shot and killed 59 Palestinians and wounded hundreds in mass protests on the Gaza border.

    The high casualty toll triggered a diplomatic backlash against Israel and new charges of excessive use of force against unarmed protesters. The U.N. Security Council began its session Tuesday with a moment of silence for the dead, and the U.N.’s special Mideast envoy said there was “no justification for the killing.”

    Turkey expelled Israel’s ambassador, and several European countries called for an international investigation.

    Israel said it has the right to protect its border and nearby communities, accusing Gaza’s ruling militant group Hamas of carrying out several attacks under the guise of the protests. The U.S. ambassador to the U.N., Nikki Haley, came to Israel’s defense, saying no member “would act with more restraint than Israel has.”

      2. Were you going to say

      “Is a disgusting and repellant person who should never have been chosen to be ambassador of anything”?

        3. "Haley was the first female governor of South Carolina

        and the second Indian-American, after fellow Republican Bobby Jindal, to serve as a governor in the United States.”

        “At age 12, Haley began helping with the bookkeeping in her mother’s ladies’ clothing shop, Exotica International.[21] In her autobiography, Haley credited her time keeping the books in her mother’s dress shop with giving her “an extreme watchfulness about overheads and a sharp aversion to government intrusion”. The Economist compared her to another shopkeeper’s daughter, Margaret Thatcher.”
