Gaza toll rises to 59 with more protests against Israel planned

Israeli forces kill 18, injure over 1000 as Palestinians protest opening of US Embassy

But the number of protesters appeared to number in the hundreds at several locations, substantially smaller than the 40,000 who demonstrated along the Gaza border Monday in opposition to the opening of the new US embassy in Jerusalem less than 100 kilometers away.

More than 2,700 were hurt, 1,360 by gunfire, the ministry said.

Israel said those who did used explosive devices and firebombs, while shots were fired at soldiers.

Britain's minister for the Middle East, Alistair Burt, acknowledged "Israel's right to defend its borders" but said "the large volume of live fire is extremely concerning". Its main ally the U.S. has backed that stance, with both saying that Hamas, the group that rules the coastal enclave, instigated the violence.

"Extremists may use the upcoming relocation of the US Embassy in Israel to target US citizens". The group led weekly protests near the border with Israel since late March as part of the push.

"It's not just that it's provoked violence or that it's made the United States look like the biased broker instead of the honest broker", Indyk said of the embassy move, "but it also has set the process back in a way that all this loose talk about how it's going to advance peace is ludicrous". The area was relatively quiet early in the day, with many Gazans at the funerals. Protesters are expected to go to the border later.

As the violence raged on, Hamas has escalated its campaign against Israel, calling on the Palestinian Authority that controls the West Bank to cancel the 1990s Oslo agreements and for Palestinians to stage a third intifada or "uprising".

He supports an independent worldwide investigation of events at the Gaza border yesterday.

Sisulu also said she wants to reach out to the South African Jewish community and sit down with them to explain why it is unacceptable.

After dozens of Palestinians were killed and thousands were injured near the Israeli border, the Trump Administration insisted Hamas was to blame for the "gruesome and unfortunate propaganda attempt".

Some have flown kites carrying containers of petrol that have spread fires on the Israeli side.

A woman mourns the death of Mohammed Dwedar, a 27 year-old Palestinian killed during clashes along the Gaza border the previous day, in Nusseirat refugee camp in the Gaza Strip on May 15, 2018.

In a statement, the foreign ministry warned of the consequences of the relocation of the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, reports Xinhua.

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.

The embassy move is contentious for Palestinians, who hope to claim part of Jerusalem as their future capital, and for many in the Arab world, as it is home to some of the holiest sites in Islam.

Most countries say Jerusalem's status should be determined in a final peace settlement and that moving their embassies now would prejudge any such deal.

"I don't know of any army that would do anything differently if you had to protect your border against people who say, 'We're going to destroy you, and we're going to flood into your country, '" Netanyahu told Glor.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel echoed May, stating she was sympathetic to Israel's security needs but expressed concerns about the "escalation of violence" during a phone call with Netanyahu on Tuesday, according to her spokesman, Steffen Seibert. Of course, the voters who put Trump in the White House see the situation differently.

"Hamas is intentionally and cynically provoking this response".

Shah was echoing the sentiments of Jared Kushner, US President Donald Trump's son-in-law and senior advisor, to some extent. Look, the peace plan will be brought forward at an appropriate time.
