What Kenya's show at US Jerusalem embassy shift means

The Israeli Soccer Team Renamed After Donald Trump Has A History Of Open Racism Against Arabs Jacinda Ardern condemns 'devastating one-sided loss of life' in Jerusalem

Amid the carnage, USA officials gloated about moving their embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a decision that contributed to Monday's horror show, while Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called it a "glorious day".

Trump did not make the trip to Israel for the official opening, but sent daughter and adviser Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner in his place.

Hundreds of police officers were deployed around the embassy compound and throughout the city, and many streets were closed down to secure the event.

It was the deadliest day in Gaza since a 2014 cross-border war.

Palestinians and Israelis bitterly contest the status of Jerusalem, with Palestinians saying they want East Jerusalem, as the capital of their future nation state.

The US on Monday blocked a Kuwait-drafted UN Security Council statement that would have expressed "outrage and sorrow at the killing of Palestinian civilians" and called for an independent investigation, UN diplomats said. "As the secretary of state said, Israel has the right to defend itself".

It said protesters used 10 explosive devices and firebombs against troops and that shots were fired at soldiers positioned along the border.

"The IDF (Israel Defense Forces) will act forcefully against any terrorist activity and will operate to prevent attacks against Israelis", the military said in a statement.

Turkey recalled its ambassador to both Israel and the United States, while South Africa brought its ambassador back from Tel Aviv.

Zarif described the US embassy move and massacring of Palestinians as "a day of great shame".

In the West Bank, Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas declared a general strike on Tuesday after accusing Israel of "massacres".

The high casualty toll triggered a diplomatic backlash against Israel and new charges of excessive use of force against unarmed protesters.

The organization has been treating victims of the violence since the protests began last month, but Ingres said that the doctors have been overwhelmed by the number of people needing care: "Our teams carried out more than 30 surgical interventions today, sometimes on two or three patients in the same operating theater, and even in the corridors".

At least 60 Palestinians have been killed and 2,000 injured after the Israeli Defence Force (IFD) opened fire on protestors at the Gaza border yesterday.

Condemning Israel's "racist aggression on Palestine", the EFF lashed out at governments that associate with the country.

Most countries consider East Jerusalem, which Israel annexed after capturing it in the 1967 Middle East War, to be occupied territory, including the Old City, home to sites considered holy to Muslims, Jews and Christians alike.

Friedman referred to the embassy's location as "Jerusalem, Israel" drawing wild applause.

UPDATE - 12:37 p.m. EST Multiple sources indicate that shortly after Haley delivered her speech, she walked out of the room as Palestinian ambassador Riyad Mansour prepared to speak.
