The Arab league called on Thursday for an global probe into alleged crimes by Israeli forces against Palestinians on the Gaza border that left dozens killed.

The Minister of State for Foreign Affairs indicated, "Jerusalem is a special spiritual value for the humans and as our hearts strive for it every day, we call on the worldwide community to shoulder its responsibilities to stop violence against the fraternal Palestinian people, halt the vicious attack against it and end the brutal occupation".

The Arab League held an emergency meeting of foreign ministers in Cairo, Egypt, on Thursday, to debate how to deal with the U.S. move and the ensuing violence in the Palestinian Territory.

"We call for credible global investigations relating to the occupation crimes", - said the head of the Arab League extraordinary summit of foreign Ministers of the Arab countries, which was held on may 17 in Cairo.

He also took aim at the U.S. for shifting its embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv, terming it violation of global law contravention of the UN Charter's prohibition of the forcible acquisition of territory.

"We must strive for a future where Israel and Palestine thrive as states in which all are equally respected, and where civil society is able to play its constructive role", said Mohammed.

Fatou Bensuda, the ICC's chief prosecutor, said last month that she was concerned about disproportionate force used by Israeli soldiers along the Gaza border.

Palestinians are seeking East Jerusalem, which Israel captured in the 1967 Arab-Israeli war and later annexed in a move not recognised by the global community, as the capital of their future state. Palestinian security sources confirmed the target was a Hamas base, saying there were no reports of injuries. Palestinians were protesting against the tyranny of Israel and this action.

"I completely agree with the leaders of the Hamas terrorist organization who've said this over the past few days".

Protests began after the United States embassy was officially opened in Jerusalem on Monday (local time).

Calls for an independent probe into the deaths have come from many sides, including Britain, Germany, Canada and Switzerland.

"War incites war, violence incites violence".

Meanwhile, "Palestine Solidarity Day" is being observed today in Pakistan to express solidarity with oppressed people of Palestine and condemn Israel's state terrorism in Gaza.

The two sides reiterated the need to coordinate efforts on this crisis in order to stop the Israeli attacks and protect the Palestinian people.

"The Egyptians reportedly showed Hamas leaders a video that revealed Hamas members paying off civilians if they agreed to approach the border fence despite Israeli warnings that there would be deadly consequences".
