Israeli troops fired tear gas at protesters during clashes near the border between the Gaza strip and Israel as the U.S. Embassy's opened in Jerusalem.

"Today we follow through on this recognition and open our embassy in the historic and sacred land of Jerusalem and we're opening it many, many years ahead of schedule". "This is the life of the Palestinian people, and those who think that opening the embassy opens doors to peace, let them look at what is really happening in the Gaza Strip".

Gaza's Health Ministry says the number of Palestinians killed by Israeli army fire amid mass protests near the Gaza border has reached several dozen.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, however, described Trump's decision as the "slap of the century".

U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said in Vienna that he was "deeply concerned" about the developments in Gaza, and a spokesman later underscored a call for restraint. Kushner, the President's son-in-law and senior adviser, has been tasked with overseeing Israeli-Palestinian peace efforts.

As for the embassy opening in Jerusalem, Gilady praised President Donald Trump's decision.

Protests are expected to resume today.

Jerusalem is a disputed territory, contested by both Israel and Palestine, which sees it as a capital of its future state.

In a video, the president called moving the USA embassy out of Tel Aviv "a long time coming".

"I doubt that the Palestinian protests will subside - and may even increase - after the Nakba anniversary, particularly in light of the USA embassy opening in Jerusalem", she told RT.

Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag also announced that Ankara was recalling its ambassadors to the United States and Israel "for consultations" following the killings.

The United States blamed Hamas for the violence.

No, Mr. President, it was not a "great day" for Israel or the Mideast. "Thank you, President Trump, and thank you all for making the alliance between America and Israel stronger than ever".

With about 800 in attendance, the mood inside the embassy was festive Monday.

But now most Palestinians are rejecting America's historic role because of what it considers the Trump administration's tilt toward Israel, a perspective cemented by the USA announcing that it would relocate its embassy in Jerusalem. "For decades we've walked on eggshells pretending Jerusalem isn't the capital of Israel, when it obviously is".

The embassy celebration was widely considered a snub by the Palestinians.

The United Nations said Israel's actions are "outrageous human rights violations". It was the expulsion or fleeing of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians from their homes during the 1948 war surrounding Israel's creation.
