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.

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.

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".

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.
