This is the largest number of fatalities suffered in one day since the latest round of protests began more than six weeks ago, the Palestinian Ministry of Health announced. The ministry said that in addition, a 9-month-old girl died from tear gas exposure, but medical officials later cast doubt on that claim, saying the infant had a pre-existing medical condition.

Burials are taking place of dozens of people (The Guardian) killed by Israeli forces.

"It's actually the only embassy in Jerusalem‚ all other embassies are in Tel Aviv‚" he said.

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

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". The Israeli military said its aircraft had struck 11 "terror targets" in a Hamas military compound Monday and that tanks targeted two Hamas posts. Israel must respect the right to peaceful protest and the principle of proportionality in the use of force.

But French President Emmanuel Macron condemned the "violence of the Israeli armed forces against the protesters" while European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said "we expect all to act with utmost restraint to avoid further loss of life". "Israel, on the other hand, acted against the unarmed demonstrators with sniper fire, live fire that killed and maimed".

The baby's family said Tuesday that Layla had been taken to the area of the protests by relatives in a mix-up and that she was with her grandmother near the border fence when tear gas fell.

It said Gaza activists used 10 explosive devices and firebombs against troops and that shots were fired at soldiers positioned along the border. A photograph showed what the military said was an Israeli battalion commander's armored vehicle pockmarked with Kalashnikov fire.

Israel regards all of the city, including the eastern sector it captured in the 1967 Middle East war and annexed in a move that is not recognised internationally, as its "eternal and indivisible capital".

The way out of the standoff is "a two state solution allowing Palestinians and Israelis to live in peace and security together", he said.

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