The United States blocked the adoption of a UN Security Council statement that would have called for an independent probe of deadly violence on the Israel-Gaza border, diplomats said, according to an AFP report, israelnationalnews.com informs.

"The Security Council expresses its outrage and sorrow at the killing of Palestinian civilians exercising their right to peaceful protest," read a draft of the statement.

"The Security Council calls for an independent and transparent investigation into these actions to ensure accountability," the text further said.
