Thousands of Palestinians protested near Gaza's border with Israel, as Israel prepared for the festive inauguration of a new U.S. Embassy in contested Jerusalem.

The clashes took place as the new USA embassy was inaugurated in Jerusalem.

Gaza health officials told the news agency that 41 people so far have been killed in Monday's violence, and at least 772 have been wounded.

Earlier on Monday, the U.S. officially opened its brand new embassy in Jerusalem's Arnona area, amid the violent clashes in Gaza, which claimed over 50 lives.

The spokesperson did not mention the opening of the controversial U.S. embassy in Jerusalem, which also took place on Monday.

"For the long haul, it's not really good for the state of Israel", said Musa Agil, a Palestinian-American who has called the us home for more than 30 years.

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres is "profoundly alarmed by the sharp escalation of violence" along the Gaza-Israel border on Monday, a statement from his spokesperson said.

The United Nations General Assembly rejected by a huge majority the U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

In a video, the president called moving the USA embassy out of Tel Aviv "a long time coming". Speaking about the long history of the Jewish people in Jerusalem, Pence said Trump's willingness to recognize it as the capital city of the state of Israel is a historic moment.

WHO urges global ban on trans fats
The initiative, called REPLACE , offers a "step-by-step" guide for nations to follow to remove trans fat from their diets. It estimated that every year, trans-fat intake leads to more than 500,000 deaths of people from cardiovascular diseases.

"Of all the things President Trump could have done, doing this (embassy move) is the strongest signal he could send to the Israeli people", South Carolina's Graham said.

On one side were the Israelis, elated that at last, the USA government lived up to its 23-year-old promise to move its embassy to Israel's capital city, Jerusalem.

"We remain committed to advancing a lasting and comprehensive peace between Israel and the Palestinians", newly appointed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Monday.

The U.N. Security Council plans to meet Tuesday to discuss violence along the border between Israel and the Gaza Strip, following the deadliest day there since a 2014 war. "In the absence of that final agreement between the parties on the city's status, blanket recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital is premature and divisive", Ben-Ami added.

Palestinian leaders have long argued that east Jerusalem, which Israel annexed in 1967, should be regarded the capital of a future Palestinian state, while Israel has claimed Jerusalem as its capital.

The ministry reiterated its "firm position and support to the legitimate rights of the brotherly Palestinian people", the statement added. The Palestinian Authority's leader too has termed it a "massacre".

The prime minister said decision to move the embassy from Tel Aviv was a "step back" when it came to a peaceful, two-state resolution between Israelis and Palestinians.

Kushner said, "While presidents before him have backed down from their pledge to move the American Embassy once they were in office, this president delivered".
