Ireland has summoned Israel’s ambassador to Dublin Zeev Boker in protest against Israeli forces’ actions during demonstrations in Gaza over the US embassy opening in Jerusalem.

The Monday peaceful protest, which is a part of six week protests called the Great March of Return, was the blooddiest since the 2014 war against Gaza, which resulted the death of at least 61 Palestinians including 8 children and injured more than 2700 as aresponse to the US embassy relocation to Jerusalem.

According to the statement, Ireland’s Foreign Ministry has summoned the Israeli ambassador to Ireland “to express Ireland’s shock and dismay at the level of death and injury yesterday on the Gaza Strip.”

Foreign Minister Simon Coveney also urged Israel to exercise restraint “in the hours and days ahead.”
