Iran's top diplomat deplores US embassy move to Jerusalem as 'a great shame'

The clashes, which also left hundreds of Palestinians wounded, erupted before a White House delegation and Israeli officials opened the embassy at an inauguration ceremony in Jerusalem and continued throughout the day.

Israeli gunfire killed over 50 Palestinians in the ongoing Monday clashes - the highest toll in a single day since a series of protests demanding the right to return to ancestral homes began on March 30.

Mabaya said South Africa reiterated its view that the Israeli Defence Force "must withdraw from the Gaza Strip and bring to an end the violent and destructive incursions into Palestinian territories".

Dozens of people were killed in violence in Gaza Monday ahead of the controversial opening of the new U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem.

The ceremony took place at what until now had been a United States consulate building in Jerusalem.

"The routine actions of the Israeli armed forces present yet another obstacle to a permanent resolution to the conflict, which must come in the form of two states, Palestine and Israel, existing side-by-side and in peace", said Dirco.

Eight children were among those killed during violent clashes on the Israel-Gaza border during protests over the opening of the United States embassy in Jerusalem, according to the Palestinian envoy to the UN.

The protest coincides with the 70th anniversary of Israel's declaration of independence, a day before the Palestinians' Nakba Day, or "Day of Catastrophe".

Israel captured east Jerusalem in the 1967 Middle East war and annexed it in a move not recognised internationally.

"President Trump has shown courage and true love of the Israeli people and their capital".

Palestinians hurled stones and incendiary devices while the Israeli military used snipers as black smoke poured from burning tyres.

France and Russian Federation on Monday expressed their disapproval of the United States' embassy move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, citing violations to global law.

Trump pledged during his campaign to move the US embassy to Jerusalem, and in December he broke with longstanding policy by recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital.That same month, the U.N. General Assembly overwhelmingly adopted a resolution rejecting Trump's decisions regarding Jerusalem.

"What a glorious day for Israel", Netanyahu said in a speech.

"President Trump, by recognising history you are making history". Clearly this is a recognition of a very clear reality.

But most of the 850 embassy workers in Tel Aviv will not move until a new embassy is built, which could take a decade to complete.

"While presidents before him have backed down from their pledge to move the American Embassy once they were in office, this president delivered". As the weeks-long protests at the border turned extremely violent Monday, riot organizers encouraged protesters to breach the barriers, and Israel warned that it would do whatever necessary to prevent a security breach, according to the Times of Israel.
