Gaza Strip: 55 Palestinians killed while protesting United States embassy in Jerusalem

Theresa May seeks independent inquiry into Palestinian deaths

The protest also marks the 70th anniversary of what Palestinians call their "nakba", or catastrophe, a reference to the uprooting of hundreds of thousands who fled or were expelled from what is now Israel during the 1948 war.

The US has lost its role as mediator in the Middle East by moving its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in London on Monday.

Ben Shapiro criticized liberal media outlets for an imbalance in covering Monday's deadly clash between Israel and Palestinians at the Israel-Gaza border.

Some funerals were held on Monday, while others were taking place Tuesday. Israeli snipers responded with rifle fire that left dozens of people dead and thousands injured.

"Suddenly my son cried at me that Lolo was weeping and screaming".

"To this day, many freedom-loving governments of the world have associated with Israel, despite its racist policies on Palestine".

Netanyahu said on Twitter Monday every country is obligated to defend its borders.

He told the dedication ceremony that it had been a "long time coming", adding: "Israel is a sovereign nation with the right to determine its own capital but for many years we failed to acknowledge the obvious".

US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley on Tuesday defended Israel's use of force against Palestinian demonstrators in Gaza and walked out of a UN Security Council session as Palestine's envoy, Riyad Mansour, began to speak.

"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". Aircraft and tanks had also targeted military positions belonging to Hamas in the northern Gaza Strip.

The high casualty toll triggered a diplomatic backlash against Israel and new charges of excessive use of force against unarmed protesters. Other tactics, including three wars with Israel and attempts at reconciliation with the West Bank-based Palestinian Authority, have failed.

She added the dogs often play near the pool without incident. But their other dog, named Remus, quickly went to work. So Remus and Smokey got a little rambunctious.

"In fact the records of several countries here today suggest they would be much less restrained".

"The blood of innocent Palestinians is on the hands of the United States", he said.

Ireland's Foreign Ministry summoned the Israeli ambassador to express "shock and dismay" over the high casualty toll and said it would seek an independent worldwide investigation.

In Dublin, Ireland summoned Israel's ambassador to protest.

The UN rights office said it seemed that any Palestinian protesting in Gaza, regardless of whether they pose an imminent threat, is "liable" to be killed by Israeli forces.

China called for restraint, "especially" from Israel.

Most of the protesters stay around the tent camps, but groups of youths have ventured closer to the no-go zone along the fence, risking live fire from Israeli troops to roll burning tires and throw stones. A reporter saw two men who tried to advance further being shot in the legs by Israeli troops. Israel said its soldiers fired only at "targets of terrorist activity". After condemnation of most of the world‚ Donald Trump and his administration continued to open the embassy in Jerusalem.

Israel captured east Jerusalem in the 1967 Mideast war and annexed it in a move not recognized by the global community.

Trump's move has sparked a powerful reaction from Palestinians, who claim East Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state.

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

Many critics of Trump's decision to move the US embassy suggest that it was primarily done to please his conservative evangelical base.
