In a blog posted on Monday, Dr. Tarek Loubani, who works at the London Health Sciences Centre, said he was shot as he was standing with a group of paramedics about 25 metres away from the protest area, wearing "hospital green top and bottom so I could both be identified as medical staff and a physician".

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley forcefully defended Israel's reaction to the protests along the border with the Gaza Strip on Monday that resulted in as many as 60 Palestinian deaths.

"We are appalled that Dr. Tarek Loubani, a Canadian citizen, is among the wounded - along with so many unarmed people, including civilians, members of the media, first responders, and children", he said.

Israeli forces killed at least 62 Palestinians during protests near the Gaza fence on the eve of the 70th anniversary of the Nakba Day (the Day of Catastrophe), which coincided this year with the relocation of the United States embassy from Tel Aviv to the occupied city of Jerusalem al-Quds.

In a statement, Trudeau describes the reported use of excessive force and live ammunition as "inexcusable".

In remarks to graduates of the Virginia Military Institute, Tillerson laments assaults on facts that he says would lead to a loss of freedom if not countered. At least 61 protestors were killed in clashes with Israeli forces. "In general, we approached with high visibility clothing and hands up until we arrived at the incident", Loubani wrote.

The Israeli embassy in Ottawa did not immediately respond to a request for comment Wednesday.

"Continued crimes committed by Israel without any global response will lead to a new cycle of violence that will affect the region, Europe and the entire world, stressing that the stability of the Middle East is essential for worldwide stability". There were no protesters in our immediate vicinity.

Several nations, including those on the U.N. Security Council, supported a proposal for an investigation into Israel's actions on Sunday. Danon asked members of the Security Council.
