Tutu 'deeply distressed and brokenhearted' by Gaza carnage

International Relations Minister Lindiwe Sisulu says government's intent to downgrading the South African embassy in Israel still stands.

South Africans demonstrated in solidarity with Palestinians on Tuesday, a day after 60 were killed protesting the U.S. embassy's move to Jerusalem, with anti-apartheid icon Archbishop Desmond Tutu declaring himself "brokenhearted". The demonstrations were fuelled by a controversial decision by US President Donald Trump to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

In Port Elizabeth, Professor Janet Cherry of Nelson Mandela University said only an global response which has the power to isolate and put pressure on the Israeli regime would succeed in curbing Israeli aggression.

Moran began her speech on a personal note, saying that if it weren't for Nakba - the term Palestinians use to commemoration the displacement that preceded and followed the Israeli Declaration of Independence in 1948 - she might not be speaking there today, and that this compelled her bring the matter to Parliament's attention. That is not the way we believe we should engage with other states. They are forcibly removed, their water gets taken away, people's lives are lost every day, every moment. There was not a single person injured on the Israeli side.

Sheikh Shamiel Panday said that it was up to the man on the street to show solidarity with the Palestinian people because "no country as a whole gives a damn".

The team scored 19 runs in the second over of the innings while the total of 28 runs in the third over of the innings. If the current scenario is to be looked at, the Sunrisers Hyderabad have already qualified to the playoffs.

The group's main issue was that current visa regulations were guided by an apartheid-era agreement that has remained in force, resulting in Israeli officials and some citizens needing very little visa requirements when entering South Africa.

"The South African government regards the occupation of Palestine as unjust, and to that extent, we need to continue the effort that there is a climate for peace. and encouragement of dialogue". "Our best weapon is prayer, we are united", said Panday.

"If we were to expel their ambassador they would expel ours".

"We obviously are going to apply our minds with Cabinet colleagues, and we will respond in due course at the soonest available opportunity", he said.
