occupied territory. you're on a roll council must uphold its responsibility and must take a stance in condemning this massacre in order to stop the massacre and to provide protection to our civilian people must. if such and ever is blocked and if the council is unable to take up its responsibility. those responsible must must also take responsibility for covering up for the israeli criminals and for protecting israel criminals instead of stopping them as we come before the security council today with their sense of repugnance and their don't see in light of israelis latest campaign of military aggression and the tax against the defenseless palestinian civilian population in grave breach of international law
3:36 am
including international humanitarian law and the relevant probably doings the regarding the protection of civilians in armed conflict today at least seventeen palestinian civilians have been killed and more than one thousand four hundred injured in the besieged gaza strip many of them seriously to model has been declared by our government as a national day of. mourning in palestine the majority of those killed were taking part in a peaceful none violent demonstration a repeat peaceful nonviolent demonstration to mark the forty second anniversary of land day. in which six palestinians were killed in protest against israelis illegal
3:37 am
expropriation of thousands of the unknowns of palestinian land in one nine hundred seventy six and to reiterate the right of return for palestine refugees in this regard i recall that seventy percent of gaza's two million palestinians are really just started refugees whose the right of return has been systematically been denied by israel the names of some of the palestinians tragically killed mohammedan a jar aged twenty five mahmoud mom aged thirty eight mohammad omar age twenty two. age and nineteen jihad training age thirty three mahmoud sadly rami rami age thirty three abdul fatah abdi nabil age twenty two brahim abu. her
3:38 am
age twenty as well as. abdul qadeer of al how a jerry sorry. i'm sheesh jihad moves but there are some bad analogy gee who whose ages remains unknown moreover earlier on friday. wahid some more farmer from the gaza strip was also killed by israeli artillery artillery fire while standing on his land new york and eunice just hours ahead of the peaceful and nonviolent demonstrations regimes there is nothing more repulsive. than a massacre of an armed defenseless people including women and children yet this is
3:39 am
exactly what israel the occupying power has done and continues to do year after year since its inception these peaceful demonstrators pose no threat whatsoever to. its heavily armed soldiers i repeat these peaceful demonstrators posed no threat whatsoever to israel or it's have armed soldiers yet it's trigger happy soldiers use live ammunition tear gas and rubber bullets to shoot in this rick indiscriminately at those nonviolent protesters who were demonstrating inside the gaza strip near their side of the well fortified barrier that separates them from israel how could that be can the peaceful peaceful peaceful demonstrators
3:40 am
which is their right to do so grad did all elements of international law including international human rights law and cannot be equated whatsoever with the belligerency and attacks and the massacre of the israeli armed forces for those who are tried to say balance come on now that is not the case civilian protesters demonstrating peacefully and an armed forces unleashed massive power against them that led to this massacre with this large number of casualties in fact. today's protests are meant to kick off six weeks of peaceful protests leading up to the combination of on one fifteenth of may two thousand and eighteen this year's commemoration of or not by will
3:41 am
solemnly observe the passage of seventy years since more than eight hundred thousand palestinians seventy percent of our people at that time were forcibly uprooted and expelled from their homes and lands or fled in fear of their lives after a brutal massacre as were carried out in over four hundred palestinian towns and villages by zionist terrorist groups in mandated palestine in a clear act of ethnic cleansing as is usual practice for is a today's vicious attacks by israel against this on and unprotected palestinian civilians where premeditated and deliberate israeli officials have been preparing the ground for these attacks with inciting
3:42 am
provocative and violent rhetoric such incitement even lead for statements to be made by human rights organizations such as amnesty international which issued a warning yesterday calling under israeli occupying forces to refrain and i quote to refrain from using excessive force in the court ation following reports it had deployed more than one hundred snipers. you can see the picture an israeli media with orders court to shoot anyone who breaches the wall between israel and gaza in the goat issue in addition to the snipers the occupying forces also sent armored vehicles sniffers and attack dogs as well as hundreds of other occupying forces equipped with all sorts of lethal weapons and them and munition to use as they please and without regard to palestinian lives in the
3:43 am
gaza strip we should not forget that the two million palestinian civilians in gaza already suffer immeasurably from israelis ten years of blockade which has led to a dire socio economic and humanitarian crisis it is beyond clear in wards and deeds that the latest incitement by israeli officials and barbaric violence by its occupying forces against the rights and lives of the palestinian people have little to do with israelis so-called security and everything to do with continuing with its strangling strangulating control over the lives of every palestinian man woman and children and child living under its brutal occupation it should be stated that the continuation by the occupying power to violently silence all acts
3:44 am
of palestinian man violent actions against is systematic dehumanization of the palestinian people and the denial of their alienable right will never succeed. the people will continue to fight for their rights including their rides to be free from occupation and to live in peace security and with dignity tragically as we witness the events of today where tens of thousands of palestinians are peacefully marching throughout the occupied state of palestine including is jerusalem as well as among the palestinian population living in israel and in the past for the events of today remind us that not bad did not end in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight and continues until today in this connection it is beyond tragic that
3:45 am
millions of palestinians continue to either live in exile as refugees deny that in l.a. number right to return to their homes or continue to live under israelis have century belligerent military occupation of the state of palestine including is jerusalem where they are forced to endure the constant violation of their fundamental human rights including israelis ongoing theft of palestinian land for illegal settlements is destruction of palestinian homes and agricultural land rover cocksure evocation of residency rights deportation reoccurring brutal military assaults that have resulted in massive billion casualties such as the ones that took place in gaza in two thousand and eight two thousand and nine two thousand and twelve and two thousand and fourteen as well as the denial of the international and
3:46 am
a good recognized legal right of return of millions of stateless palestinians refugee palestine refugees we call on the council to act swiftly. to uphold its charter duties and integrity and authority over its resolutions in light of the violations and provocations against the rights and legitimate national aspersions of the palestinian people the international community must condemn quickly and in the strongest terms israeli's criminal and illegal actions in the occupied palestinian territory especially in the gaza strip is an ill must be held fully accountable for all of its crimes including today's most recent killings of innocent palestinian civilians in accordance with international law and the principles of justice and we also are we welcome the suggestions by many
3:47 am
of you requesting investigations of the israeli occupation forces with the with regard to the massacre that have taken place today in the gaza strip with the high number of deaths today we call once more and then to national community particularly the security council to act now to provide protection to the palestinian people in order to avert more bloodshed and to save innocent palestinian lives and to defuse this volatile situation which clearly constitutes a threat to international peace and security then to national community must uphold its responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security and to bring an immediate end to the occupying powers military aggression. as we have
3:48 am
stated in the past the palestinian people cannot remain the exception to the international commitments to and obligations under international law including the obligation to protect civilians from atrocities and grave breaches specially on that military foreign occupation and i thank you very much mr president riyad mansour there the palestinian envoy to the u.n. addressing that opening session which we went back to because obviously he is a significant delegate there at the u.n. headquarters in new york he said he was talking there about israeli criminals he said we come here with a sense of repugnant seventeen people were killed fourteen hundred were injured as the israeli forces started using live ammunition today he went on to list the seventeen people who were killed today it will yesterday now in that demonstration and also he named and paid his respects to the farmer who died the relatively young
3:49 am
farmer who died when he was out tending his fields in the middle of the night local time he said the people pose no threat he said this was day one of six weeks of peaceful protest he wasn't pulling his punches on the language certainly he was talking about the israelis inciting violence and provoked with provocative rhetoric as well he's looking for the un security council to publish statement quite quickly we assume asking for the strongest condemnation possible within the usual structures he didn't say that that's that's what we are saying within the usual structures inside which the un operates he said we called once more for the un security council to act now in order to avert more bloodshed james bays is my colleague our diplomatic editor james strong language there from riyadh man saw. yes strong language from riyadh so as you would expect a strong speech from the palestinian ambassador made in both arabic and english so that he got the message across to the world and clearly the message that he is
3:50 am
doing his job here in new york to the palestinian people back home so that was the reason for two languages and that the last speech of the security council session this hastily convened session was going to be closed ended up being open part of a battle of wills between the u.s. and kuwait kuwait on behalf of the palestinians and the rest of the arab countries had wanted a strong statement condemning what happened today that has not come but we did get an open session of the u.n. security council we were able to hear all the countries positions we were also able to hear from the assistant secretary general for political affairs of the united nations warning that things could continue to deteriorate in the coming days we do know also have a statement from the secretary general of the united nations himself and tony a good terrorist it took quite some hours to get it but it has come through in the
3:51 am
last few minutes the statement says the secretary general is deeply concerned about the clashes at the garza fronts today and then the important bit of the statement peter the secretary general calls for an independent and transparent investigation into these incidents that statement slightly longer statement but that's those are the key points from the u.n. secretary general released in the last few minutes james thanks very much well as we've been hearing at least seventeen palestinians were killed and more than one thousand were injured after being shot by israeli forces during the land day protests in gaza. i mean reports now on the day's events. no apologies for we haven't got that report for you we will go back to it if we can and we have it now here we go. it was supposed to be a peaceful day but as an arm protested march towards the border fence.
3:52 am
israeli soldiers opened fire. sharpshooters were deployed but palestinians frustrated by the endless siege to live under undeterred israeli commanders say they issued warnings against approaching the border fence not clear. we will never shoot one bullet against anyone who stays away from the security wall we have wounded during the last few days that everyone who tries to violate the israeli sovereignty or to infiltrate the israeli territories will put himself and his life in danger but for besieged palestinian demonstrating next to the border is about the only visible means available for the world not to forget their plight we live under immense pressure that is why the people explode the blockade and the siege led to the explosion we either choose to live properly or to die we have no space we have no alternatives but to explode we have nothing except the oxygen and the air. landing is considered the first palestinian popular uprising for the past
3:53 am
forty two years palestinians have been commemorating this day but this year after trumps the day ration over jerusalem it has taken greater significance it all started here in the world in israel after thousands of hectares of land were confiscated from palestinians back in one nine hundred seventy six six palestinians were killed them yet over how many says nothing has changed since palestinian land is still being taken away now more than ever enemies in here we came to commemorate this day because we have to confront the state it's important to remember our martyrs and it's important to save our owners. of the land i personally think we should resist until our last breath we shouldn't negotiate any more we shouldn't give up our rights we need to find new ways many of the people living in gaza today are refugees and they're demanding their right to return home several tens have
