Is it Palestinian peace process?

Published: May 16, 2018

KARACHI: With the inauguration of the US Embassy in Jerusalem, over 60 Palestinians have been killed in clashes between the Israeli forces and the protesting Palestinians. Those killed include not just the protestors but also a baby who suffocated to death because of the use of tear gas by the Israeli forces. The clashes have been termed the deadliest since 2014. Yet there are no statements of condemnation by the leaders around the world, particularly those from Muslim countries.

Moreover, while the embassy has been opened, the peace process still awaits progress in the resolution of decades-old and the deadliest conflict of the region.
