White House calls deaths in Gaza 'propaganda' by Hamas

On Tuesday, Palestinians will mark what they call the "Nakba" or Catastrophe, in memory of the more than 700,000 Palestinians who were either driven from or fled their homes during the Arab-Israeli war that accompanied the creation of the State of Israel in 1948.

On Monday, the USA officially opened its new embassy in Jerusalem, fuelling deadly protests across the border.

Most of the 60 Gazans killed Monday were shot by Israeli snipers, Gaza's health ministry said.

Palestinians see East Jerusalem, which was occupied by Israel during the 1967 Six Day War and later annexed in 1980, as the capital of their future state.

In a press conference with Turkey's president at Downing Street, Mrs May said the loss of life in Gaza was "tragic and extremely concerning".

Protests could still take place later Tuesday, following the funerals, according to reports.

Monday's horrific violence in the Gaza Strip, set in contrast to the sight of the son-in-law of U.S. President Donald Trump saying in Jerusalem that the day would be remembered as the beginning of a new peace in the region, was a combination of tragedy and farce.

If an animal seems particularly violent or aggressive, it will also be prohibited from boarding a plane with its owner. However, unlike United and Delta, American won't require owners to submit health and vaccination forms.

Small groups have approached the border fence, throwing stones, burning tyres and hurling Molotov cocktails.

The UN Security Council will meet today to discuss the violence, but diplomats said members on Monday failed to come to unanimous agreement on a statement calling for restraint.

The Palestinian Health Ministry said more than 1,600 had suffered injuries, and that numerous dead had not yet been identified.

Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu said his military was acting in self-defence against Gaza's Islamist rulers, Hamas, who he said wanted to destroy Israel.

Israel said some 40,000 Palestinians had taken part in "violent riots" at 13 locations along the Gaza Strip security fence.

Speaking later on Friday during a visit to the United Kingdom capital, London, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused Israel of being a "terrorist state", saying it was commiting a "genocide" against Palestinians.

Ireland summoned the Israeli ambassador to express its "shock and dismay at the level of death and injury". They need to stop treating the situation between the Palestinians and the Israelis as if they are two sovereign states fighting each other.

More than 50 Palestinians were killed and over 1,200 wounded by Israeli gunfire amid mass protests Monday. It said shots were also fired at soldiers.

But Guatemala, which received support from Israel in its counter-insurgency campaigns in the 1980s, plans to open an embassy in Jerusalem on Wednesday.

Israel occupied the West Bank and east Jerusalem in 1967 and later annexed east Jerusalem in a move never recognised by the global community.

Worldwide consensus has been that the city's status must be negotiated between the two sides, but Trump broke with that to global outrage.

Condemning Israel's "racist aggression on Palestine", the EFF lashed out at governments that associate with the country. That is what the United Nations states, so if you are to move the embassy to East Jerusalem, you're declaring war.

The opening of the U.S. embassy coincided with the 70th anniversary of Israel's founding.
