Iran urges Muslims to unite against U.S. relocation of embassy in Israel

Theresa May seeks independent inquiry into Palestinian deaths Live: Guatemala moves its embassy to Jerusalem

At the end of March, the Hamas leader in Gaza, Yahya Sinwar, said the demonstrations were aimed at removing the "transient border" with Israel.

What began as Palestinian protests against economic sanctions in Gaza months ago now also includes a response to the embassy move.

Trump's move has sparked a powerful reaction from Palestinians, who claim East Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state. Trump tweeted earlier Monday.

Monday's protest also targeted the opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem, viewed as a major provocation by the Palestinians and the Arab world. One of the minors was identified as a girl. Over 100 Palestinians have been killed and hundreds wounded by live fire in the series of weekly protests.

He was represented at the embassy ceremony by his daughter Ivanka and his son-in-law Jared Kushner, US envoy to the Middle East. Gaza's Hamas-run Interior Ministry said 10 were members of the group.

"We will also act through the United Nations and we have given our support to the United Nations secretary general in his call for an independent investigation in to this matter".

"Most Arab leaders remain silent, while some even stand by the Zionists and support USA and Israeli policies", he asserted.

The goal of the protest is to bring worldwide attention to the blockade Israel maintains over the territory and to call for the right of Palestinian refugees to return to their lands in Israel.

The relocation of the embassy from Tel Aviv, condemned by Palestinians as blatantly pro-Israel, further dimmed prospects of what President Donald Trump had once touted as plans to negotiate the "deal of the century".

Some 50,000 Palestinians protested at the border on Monday.

It was the deadliest day in Gaza since the 2014 war.

Erdan said, "It's time for the heads of Hamas to pay a personal price for organizing these terror attacks".

"Moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem will be a disaster for the American administration and a black day in the history of the American people because they are partners with the occupation and its aggression against the Palestinian people", he added.

The prime minister said the use of live rounds by Israeli forces was "deeply troubling" and urged greater restraint. Some have tried to break through the fence.

Germany said Israel had the right to defend itself but should do so proportionately.

Gaza's power crisis was further aggravated last week when Palestinian vandals destroyed the fuel terminal at Israel's only cargo crossing into the territory, halting the flow of fuel and gas.

"It was a bilateral event between the USA and Israel and we were not invited", spokesman Adam Austen said in an email.

A majority of Gaza's 2 million people are descendants of refugees, and the protests have been billed as the "Great March of Return" to long-lost homes in what is now Israel.

Coveney also asked for "restraint from Israel in the hours and days ahead", the foreign ministry said.

Small groups have approached the border fence, throwing stones, burning tyres and hurling Molotov cocktails.

Israeli troops were deployed along the border again on Tuesday.

Israeli officials say that Hamas has used the protests to cover terrorist activities and to distract Palestinians from its "failures as a governing body".

Israel occupied the West Bank and east Jerusalem in 1967 and later annexed east Jerusalem in a move never recognised by the worldwide community.

The United States opened its new Israel embassy in Jerusalem on Monday.

"Israel is a sovereign nation with the right like every other sovereign nation to determine its own capital, yet for many years, we failed to acknowledge the obvious, the plain reality that Israel's capital is Jerusalem", Trump said in the pre-recorded remarks. She Pompeo said sadly they could not, as the decision has already been made.
