Red Cross official calls for avoiding casualties in Gaza mass protests

Monday's march is meant to express anger over U.S. Embassy's inauguration, while Tuesday is "Nakba" or Catastrophe Day, when Palestinians observe the 70th anniversary of Israel's founding.

Less than 100 kilometers away from the violent protests, US and Israeli officials gathered in Jerusalem as the embassy was opened.

The death toll of Palestinian protesters killed by Israeli snipers inside the Gaza Strip on Monday has risen to 25, according to the Gaza Heath Ministry.

In a five-minute video entitled "Tel Aviv is Also a Land of Muslims", the Egyptian doctor who took charge of the global terror group after its founder Osama bin Laden was killed in 2011 referred to the Palestinian Authority as the "sellers of Palestine" while urging followers to take up arms. In the West Bank, several thousand people gathered in the center of Ramallah, while hundreds marched to the Qalandiya crossing on the outskirts of Jerusalem, where protesters threw stones at Israeli troops.

Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, an Israeli military spokesman, said the army had bolstered its border forces and added security in and around neighboring communities to defend against a mass breach.

As well as the protests by the Palestinians, demonstrations are expected on Monday in other Arab capitals where governments have argued that the status of Jerusalem should only form part of a final peace agreement.

Israel accuses Hamas of using the protests as a cover to launch attacks against the Gaza-Israel border fence, and Israeli soldiers on the other side.

The issue has always been seen as one of the last big items that would need to be resolved in any Israeli-Palestinian peace deal. Romania and the Czech Republic have also said they will move their embassies from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in due course.

He'll be backed by a delegation that includes Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan, Secretary of Treasury Steven Mnuchin, Senior adviser and Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner, senior adviser and first daughter Ivanka Trump, and Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt.

The Trump administration bypassed years of costly construction on a new embassy by repurposing an existing consular building.

At the time of publication, the Gazan health ministry said 37 Palestinians - including a 14-year-old - were killed in the protests.

"This is what the people of Gaza want".

"We will stay peaceful with our hands like this", he said, lifting them to the sky.

One of President Donald Trump's most contentious foreign policy projects, the inauguration of a U.S. embassy in Jerusalem, is set to be carried out Monday even as peace in the Middle East seems more elusive than ever.

President Trump said his "greatest hope" is for peace.

Many Israelis have also warned their government about the threat the U.S. decision poses.

Trump's decision to shift the embassy to Jerusalem enraged many.

But the move has infuriated the Palestinians, who claim east Jerusalem as their capital and have said that the move disqualifies the U.S.as a Mideast peace mediator. "We are deeply grateful and our people will be eternally grateful for his bold decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and to move the embassy there", Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said yesterday.

Mr. Trump announced in December that the USA would recognize Jerusalem, which is claimed by both Israel and the Palestinians, as Israel's capital.

It would not have been so bad if Trump stressed he was specifying West Jerusalem as Israel's capital, which would have left open the possibility that East Jerusalem might still in future be that of the Palestinians.
