Canada calls for independent probe into Israel’s "excessive force" in Gaza
Ottawa, May 17 (Petra) -- Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau late Wednesday called for an "immediate and independent investigation" to thoroughly examine the facts on the ground -- including any incitement, violence, and the excessive use of force by Israel in Gaza." "Reported use of excessive force and live ammunition is inexcusable," he said. "It is imperative we establish the facts of what is happening in Gaza." Trudeau offered Canadian assistance in the probe, while vowing to work with partners and multilateral institutions "to address this serious situation." The prime minister also said he is "appalled" that a Canadian doctor, Tarek Loubani, was among at least 2,400 unarmed protestors, media, first responders and children wounded.

"We are doing everything we can to assist Dr Loubani and his family, and to determine how a Canadian citizen came to be injured," he said adding, "We are engaging with Israeli officials to get to the bottom of these events." //Petra//S Kh
