BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:45 A.M.) – An effigy of US President Donald Trump was ripped to shreds at a pro-Palestine demonstration in Diyarbakir, south-eastern Turkey, on Tuesday.

The protest was called to denounce the relocation of the US embassy to Israel.

International condemnation followed recent bloodshed at the border fence, when Israeli fire killed 60 Palestinians, according to the Gaza health ministry.

The Turkish government asked the Israeli ambassador to temporarily leave the country in protest.

Israel does not release figures and denies suggestions it uses excessive force.

The six-week long ‘Great March of Return’ rallies culminate tomorrow, the 70th anniversary of Israel’s declaration of independence.

Palestinians call it the ‘Nakba’ – meaning ‘Catastrophe’ in Arabic – referring to the 1948 Palestinian exodus, where an estimated 700,000 Palestinians were expelled to make way for the newly created state of Israel.
