Iranians burn an image of US President Donald Trump during an anti-US demonstration in Tehran

"Today we open the United States embassy in Jerusalem, Israel", US ambassador to Israel David Friedman said at the beginning of the inaugural ceremony, attended by a US delegation from Washington and Israeli leaders.

The AP news agency reported some Israeli forces had opened fire from tanks.

He said among the Palestinian civilians killed on Monday were eight children under the age of 16.

"Israel is a sovereign nation with the right, like every other sovereign nation, to determine its own capital", he said.

According to the diplomat, the meeting is set to begin at 1400 GMT. The unveiling comes around the 70th anniversary of establishing Israel as a Jewish state.

"What Israel has done is a genocide. I condemn this humanitarian drama, the genocide, from whichever side it comes, Israel or America", he added.

Mnuchin: Trump Fulfills Promises With New Embassy in Israel
The Trump administration has avoided that description, and noted that the city's final borders should be decided by the parties. He said the decision is merely a recognition of reality, and he said it provides a firmer foundation for peace negotiations.

Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag told reporters in Ankara that Turkey was recalling its ambassadors to the United States and Israel "for consultations".

Silverberg also addressed the deadly Palestinian protests, calling it a war between democracy and terrorism.

"Because of the grave and indiscriminate nature of the latest Israeli attack, the South African government has chose to recall Ambassador Sisa Ngombane with immediate effect", read part of the statement.

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

The Trump administration's response to the killings of dozens of Palestinian demonstrators by Israeli soldiers was to fault the organizers of mass demonstrations by people who are living in nightmarish conditions on the Gaza Strip. An American outpost settlement. That is what the United Nations states, so if you are to move the embassy to East Jerusalem, you're declaring war. "It was a barbaric massacre in Gaza today".

Israel and Egypt imposed the blockade in 2007, after Hamas seized the territory from forces loyal to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

Ally the U.S. agreed to recognise the city as the capital back in 1995 when the Jerusalem embassy act was passed by its Congress. "Responsibility for any clashes that may arise will thus lie exclusively with Hamas and the other Palestinian organizations who have manufactured this entire campaign", according to a statement by Israel's Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The ministry called on the global community to shoulder its responsibility by stopping violence and protecting the Palestinian people.

The State Department said officials were looking at ways to identify Jerusalem as the capital, such as commonly used bold or underlined lettering or a star notation, on official maps, but said they will not be redrawn.

The official also condemned the "criminal and illegitimate" relocation of the U.S. mission to Jerusalem al-Quds.

In a video message played during the inauguration, Mr Trump said he remains committed to "facilitating a lasting peace agreement" between Israelis and Palestinians.

The Marine Corps publicly acknowledged the deployment in a statement saying it had "been requested to augment a number of embassies in light of current events".

Trump's decision to declare Jerusalem the capital of Israel and relocate the Embassy from Tel Aviv is contentious for Palestinians, who hope to claim part of the city as their future capital.

"We finally acknowledge the obvious: that Jerusalem is Israel's capital", Trump said when he announced the decision.
