Israeli troops kill 2 and injure hundreds, Palestinians say

As many as 60 Palestinians were killed on Monday in gunfire and tear gas from Israeli troops on the Gaza-Israel border, the Palestinian Health Ministry said as the United States opened its new embassy in contested Jerusalem.

Mr Netanyahu retorted in a statement: "Erdogan is among Hamas's biggest supporters and there is no doubt that he well understands terrorism and slaughter".

"I am profoundly alarmed and concerned by the sharp escalation of violence and the number of Palestinians killed and injured in the Gaza protests", said U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres.

"Those who suggest that the Gaza violence has anything to do with the location of the American embassy are sorely mistaken".

According to the Times of Israel, European foreign ministries on Monday slammed the USA decision to move its embassy to Jerusalem, saying "it violates worldwide law, is unwise and is likely to exacerbate tensions, shortly before the embassy's dedication ceremony began in Jerusalem".

It said it respects the policy of the European Union which "considers Jerusalem as the future capital of both the State of Israel and the future State of Palestine".

A British envoy said Tuesday that an independent and transparent investigation into the deaths of at least 60 Palestinians was necessary. "No, you are not right", Erdogan said.

United States group: N.Korea already dismantling nuclear site
The meeting between Kim and Moon Jae-in paved the way for talks between the North Korean leader and US President Trump. Ors simply speculate that base was unusable after last and most potent nuclear test last September.

The ongoing protests in Gaza are part of the "March of Return", which first began on March 30 with the aim of condemning Israel's occupation and demanding their right to return. He also accused the Islamist movement Hamas of taking "the people of Gaza hostage".

"Let's remember that the Hamas terrorist organization has been inciting violence for years, long before the United States made a decision to move our embassy", Haley told United Nations officials, according to Politico.

The Palestinians seek Israeli-annexed east Jerusalem as a capital. While South Africa and Turkey recalled their ambassadors to Israel because of the USA decision that has been widely criticised by its Western allies, some African countries sent representatives to witness the official opening of the embassy in disputed Jerusalem. "These demonstrations are nothing new", Nauert said.

It came a day after the United States transferred its Israel embassy from Tel Aviv to the disputed city of Jerusalem in a move that infuriated the Palestinians and was widely condemned.

Mladenov also said Hamas "must not use the protests as cover to attempt to place bombs at the fence and create provocations" by hiding its operatives among the protesters.

Hundreds of pro-Palestinian demonstrators gathered outside San Francisco's Israeli Consulate on Tuesday to protest U.S. support for Israel, the moving of the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem - which Israel views as its capitol - and the violence and death that resulted from that.
