Ivanka Trump, Steven Mnuchin officially open US embassy in Jerusalem

The family of Leyla Ghaben initially said the nine-month-old was killed by tear gas inhalation after ending up near the protests due to a mix-up, but on Tuesday a Palestinian doctor, who wished to remain anonymous, told the Associated Press that the baby girl had preexisting conditions which may have contributed to her death.

A Palestinian man throws leaflets dropped by the Israeli military during a protest against the USA embassy move to Jerusalem and ahead of the 70th anniversary of Nakba, at the Israel-Gaza border, east of Gaza City.

Fresh protests against Israel are expected in the Palestinian territories, a day after Israeli troops killed 55 people in the Gaza Strip.

The violent backlash did not come as a surprise, Ardern said.

He added the USA had "played the wrong card at the wrong time" by opening the new embassy building.

Trump's move has sparked a powerful reaction from Palestinians, who claim East Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state.

The protesters burned tires and slung rocks at the Israeli forces located at a distance beyond the fence.

"Every country has an obligation to defend its borders", he said. Its main ally the U.S. has backed that stance, with both saying that Hamas, the group that rules the coastal enclave, instigated the violence. "It's plain to see the effects of this decision and the ramifications are wide-reaching".

"This has been going on for weeks", he said.

"On one hand today is a historic day, it's recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, it's been the functional capital of the state since 1950, it's been the capital of the Jewish people for 3,000 years", he said.

In December, US President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and ordered the US embassy to be relocated there from Tel Aviv.

Tuesday marks the 70th anniversary of what Palestinians call the Nakba, or Catastrophe, that saw thousands flee amid the creation of Israel in 1948.

"The location of the embassy has no bearing on the specific boundaries of Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem, or the resolution of contested borders".

The US and Israel resoundingly lost the non-binding general assembly vote 128-9.

Haley went further than other Trump administration officials in talking about whether Israel should show restraint.

He said global law makes it clear that "lethal force may only be used as a measure of last, not first, resort". The alternatives to a two-state solution.

The ceremony took place at what until now had been a USA consulate building in Jerusalem.

The Palestinian Authority's leader condemned the action as a "massacre" and the United Nations has called it "outrageous human rights violations".

For Palestinians, the violence in Gaza is a manifestation of pent-up frustration and anger surrounding the hope for peace.

Israeli Ambassador Danny Danon said the council needed to speak out against Hamas.

Israeli and USA officials gathered in the city amidst deadly clashes in the Gaza Strip.

"All parties to the conflict have a responsibility to ensure civilians are protected", she said.

"The United States remains fully committed to facilitating a lasting peace agreement".

United Nations humanitarian co-ordinator Jamie McGoldrick said any world capital would struggle with the number of patients from Monday's violence, but Gaza's medical facilities are already very fragile from years of being denied proper resources. But ultimately, it's hard to argue this has made things more safe; it's made things less safe.
