Hershkovitz

At least 60 Palestinians were killed and more than 2,000 injured by Israeli gunfire during protests in Gaza against the opening of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem - a move that reversed decades of USA foreign policy and that was criticised by the UK, France and Russian Federation.

Israel has been buoyed by the new Jerusalem missions, which have infuriated the Palestinians.

"Israel, which is supported by the U.S., can go further in terms of its expansionist strategy in the region despite the fact that its actions have no legal justification", Atlioglu underscored, warning of possible new casualties among Palestinians in the near future.

Donald Trump's decision to move the USA embassy to Jerusalem has added to Palestinian frustrations.

"This is an inappropriate treatment of Israeli Ambassador Eitan Na'eh, " Israel's Ministry of Foreign Affairs responded in a statement.

"We highly value our relations with all European Union member states". It's a violation of human rights to go and occupy the land of Palestinians.

Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu said Guatemala was a "friend" which had also followed the USA to be the second country to recognise Israel 70 years ago.

Representatives from Cameroon, Congo, Ivory Coast, Rwanda, South Sudan, Nigeria, Kenya, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Angola, Zambia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo attended the event hosted by the Israeli government, and which marked America's official recognition of Jerusalem as the capital city of Israel.

She said, "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". The opening - attended by Guatemalan president Jimmy Morales - came just two days after a high-powered U.S. delegation also marked the transfer of its embassy from Tel Aviv. You were always among the first. "We remember our friends and Guatemala is our friend, then and now".

Some 116 Palestinians have been killed since the protests began.

The Israeli military has come under heavy worldwide criticism for firing on unarmed protesters, and faces accusations of using disproportionate force.

Israel has accused Hamas, with which it has fought three wars since 2008, of seeking to use the border protests as cover to carry out violence.

The Islamic militant group has emerged without tangible achievements from weekly border protests in which more than 100 Palestinians were killed and hundreds wounded by Israeli fire since late March.

While reports from Gaza suggested that the majority of protesters were unarmed, Ms. Haley called attention to the tactics employed by some, which included the use of Molotov cocktails and other weapons.

Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Twitter Erdogan was in no position to "preach morality to us" because he supported the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas which rules Gaza.

Earlier on Wednesday, Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman called Hamas leadership "a bunch of cannibals that treat their children as ammunition".

Israel was more than prepared to put down the violent assault on its border with Gaza, which had all the appearances of a staged attack that turned the area into a virtual war zone. Israel's military said those comments proved the protests were not peaceful.

The high death toll from Israeli fire has led to global condemnations of Israel and calls for an independent investigation.

At the same time, Israel has found other nations following the USA lead and rallying to its defense.

At Wednesday's ceremony, Morales said his country was bringing a message of "love, peace and fraternity" to Israel.
