>> Israel's defensemen still has rejected calls for an enquiry into the killing of 15 Palestinians by the Israeli military on Friday. That violence took place at the Gaza-Israel border during a Palestinian demonstration. And the UN and EU have called for an independent investigation into the bloodshed. But Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said there would be no inquiry.
Adding that Israeli soldiers deserve a medal for protecting Israel's border. The Israeli military says some of those who were shot, who'd fired at soldiers, and accused Hamas of quote cynically exploited women and children by sending them to the fence. Hamas spokesman has called those allegations lies, aimed at justifying the massacres.
Meanwhile, in an escalating war of words, Turkey's Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan calls his Israeli counterpart a terrorist for his response to Friday's protest. Benjamin Netanyahu responded to Turkey's accusation in a tweet saying the Israeli army will not be lectured by those who've indiscriminately bombed civilian populations for years.
