South Africans demonstrated in solidarity with Palestinians on Tuesday, a day after 60 were killed protesting the U.S. embassy's move to Jerusalem, with anti-apartheid icon Archbishop Desmond Tutu declaring himself "brokenhearted".

Prime Minister Charles Michel called for an investigation into the violence in which 60 Palestinians were killed on the border with Israel as the U.S. moved its embassy to Jerusalem. Of those 9 sustained bullet wounds, 13 were injured by tear gas canisters and 189 suffered with tear gas inhalation.

Gaza's Hamas-run health ministry said Tuesday that 60 Palestinians were killed and more than 2,700 were wounded the day before amid the biggest riots and rallies in a weeks-long campaign of protests against Israel, known collectively as the "March of Return".

But the United States blocked the adoption of a UN Security Council statement that would have called for an independent probe into the violence, diplomats at the United Nations said.

Russian Federation and China on Tuesday also raised concerns over the deadly violence.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel in phone talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday expressed concern over the escalation of violence in the Gaza Strip.

"The killing of peaceful protesters in Gaza is something that requires an global response and that worldwide response can isolate and put pressure on the Israeli regime so that they change their behaviour [or] at the very least to have some restraint in the way in which they deal with the legitimate demands of the Palestinian people", said Cherry. "The government should do so at this critical time and to make a stand for peace and progress in the Middle East", he said.

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirım called on Muslim countries to reassess their relations with Israel due to the deaths, Reuters reported.

European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said "we expect all to act with utmost restraint to avoid further loss of life".

Foreign Minister Simon Coveney "summoned the Israeli ambassador to Ireland... to express Ireland's shock and dismay at the level of death and injury yesterday on the Gaza Strip", the ministry said in a statement.

Sinn Fein leader Mary Lou McDonald says Coveney's actions don't go far enough, however, and called for the Israeli ambassador to Ireland to be expelled.
