The gesture of impotence was called the US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley leaving the meeting of the Security Council during the speech of the Ambassador of Palestine Riyad Mansour. Thus, the American representative decided to express a protest.



"A gesture of impotence, nerves are shot. She will not frighten anyone with her departure, she will only emphasize the US inability to ensure the peace process in the Middle East. The isolation of the United States on the issue of Jerusalem is obvious," - Russia's senator Alexey Pushkov commented on what happened.



The US stunt has caused a wave of indignation.

Let's remind, on 15 May, the UN Security Council discussed the conflict at the Palestinian-Israeli border, where more than fifty people were killed in the clashes. Addressing the gathering, Nikki Haley expressed her position that the clashes in the Gaza Strip are not connected with the opening of the American Embassy in Jerusalem. According to her, the source of violence are those, who reject the existence of the State of Israel in any place".

A day earlier, on 14 May, in Jerusalem, the daughter of US President Ivanka Trump attented the opening ceremony of the US embassy.

The world community regarded the situation as a provocation. A special wave of indignation by the actions of the United States rose in Palestine. On the opening day of the US Embassy, ​​the Palestinians protested openly in the Gaza Strip. For this, Israeli soldiers began to shoot at them. If about 60 people were killed, according to preliminary estimates, more than 3,000 people were wounded, including children and women.
