Israel faces diplomatic fallout after dozens of Palestinians killed in Gaza

Monday was also the 70th commemoration of the creation of Israel‚ a happy day for most Israelis‚ and which coincided with the opening of a new United States embassy in the city of Jerusalem‚ a holy place for the Jewish‚ Muslim and Christian faiths.

The Israeli PM responded in a statement: "Erdogan is among Hamas's biggest supporters and there is no doubt that he well understands terrorism and slaughter".

Israeli Ambassador Danny Danon defended the use of force, calling the events at the border "violent riots". "I suggest he not preach morality to us".

The juxtaposition of violence on the Gaza border and festivities attended by a Trump administration delegation - captured on split screens in TV broadcasts around the world - briefly drew attention to the plight of Gaza and its two million people.

Violent demonstrations have erupted across Israel and the Palestinian territories as the USA officially moved its embassy from Tel Aviv to the disputed city of Jerusalem, which Palestinians also claim as their capital.

The United States blocked on Monday a Kuwait-drafted council statement that would have expressed "outrage and sorrow at the killing of Palestinian civilians" and called for an independent and transparent investigation, diplomats said. The group had organized the action weeks ago to respond to the embassy move, but the protest took on a different tone as demonstrators learned of the mounting death toll in Gaza, which was "really horrific", an organizer said.

The UN Middle East peace envoy Nikolay Mladenov said there was "no justification" for the Israeli response and called the protesrs a "day of tragedy".

"This can't be a community that supports violence and occupation", she said.

But US ambassador Nikki Haley told an emergency session of the United Nations Security Council in NY that the relocation of the embassy had nothing to do with the violence and that Israel had the right to defend itself.

Hamas itself put out media saying 10 of the 58 killed on Monday at the border were fighters in its ranks.

On the status of Jerusalem, she said it should only be determined through a settlement negotiated by both parties, with the city being "a shared capital of Israel and Palestine". While South Africa and Turkey recalled their ambassadors to Israel because of the us 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.

He also urged Hamas not to use protests as cover to plant bombs and "create provocations".

Kuwait said it would propose a draft U.N. Security Council resolution on "protection of Palestinian civilians" following violence in Gaza and the United States on Tuesday praised what it called Israel's restraint against militant group Hamas.
