UN General Assembly To Condemn US' Jerusalem Decision

But the Israeli military said its own investigation had found that it was not possible to say what had killed Abu Thurayeh and that no live fire had been directed at him during the dispersal of the violent demonstration.

Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu will travel to the United States to participate in the planned United Nations General Assembly vote on Jerusalem on Thursday.

Palestinian health officials said Abu Thuraya was shot in the head while demonstrating Friday in Gaza amid unrest following President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

The countries have cited the U.S. decision to veto a draft resolution on the status of Jerusalem. "A two-thirds support in the General Assembly would actually mean the rejection of the decision made by the Security Council", he added.

Turkey will take the resolution calling on the United States to withdraw its declaration of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital to the United Nations General Assembly, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday.

She echoed that call in a Twitter post: "The US will be taking names".

The Future Movement Tuesday condemned the USA position in a statement after its parliamentary bloc's meeting, saying it was biased toward Israel and was a flagrant violation of global resolutions in support of the Palestinian right and the rights of the Palestinian people.

Only 10 such sessions have been convened, and the last time the General Assembly met in such a session was in 2009 on occupied East Jerusalem and Palestinian territories.

Key US allies Britain, France, Italy, Japan and Ukraine were among the 14 countries in the 15-member council that voted in favor of the measure. Thursday's meeting will be a resumption of that session.

"Jerusalem is a dream that is present in every Jew's heart", the mayor said, "and Trump's decision gives this dream clear global recognition".

Trump also plans to move the United States embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv.

Haley defended the veto on Monday, saying that the Security Council resolution was an affront to USA sovereignty.

Israel seized control of the eastern part of the city in the 1967 Middle East war and sees all of Jerusalem as its undivided capital.
