Pakistan expresses grave concern over shifting of United States embassy to Jerusalem

Binyamin Netanyahu greeted Ivanka Trump at a reception last night

Hamas organizers even encouraged demonstrators to burst through the fences by falsely telling them Israeli soldiers were fleeing their positions in fear.

Hours earlier in Gaza, 40,000 Palestinians who showed up to the border to protest the opening of the embassy.

Trump's decision to declare Jerusalem the capital of Israel and move the U.S. Embassy there from Tel Aviv fulfilled a campaign promise, despite pushback from European and Middle Eastern leaders who warned that doing so could undermine peace talks in the region.

What happened at the Gaza border?

Speaking from Jerusalem, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the use of force was an appropriate response to the demonstrations and prevented a breach of Israel's borders.

According to Israeli police spokesperson, Micky Rosenfeld, up to 1,000 officers were posted around the embassy's new location in the southwest neighbourhood of Arnona and its surrounding areas.

However, Israel wants the Security Council to condem Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip.

Hamas may be able to mobilise thousands more people to risk their lives and march on the border fence facing the guns of Israeli snipers.

The United States blamed Hamas for the violence. "We will continue to act with determination to protect our sovereignty and our citizens".

"IDF troops are responding with riot dispersal means and fire, and are operating according to standard operating procedures", the Israeli Defense Force tweeted Monday as the death toll continued to rise.

What has the global reaction been?

Also Monday, White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah defended the administration's choice to tap Texas evangelical pastors Robert Jeffress and John Hagee, to deliver a blessing at the Jerusalem ceremony, despite their past inflammatory remarks about other religions.

Was the violence linked to the opening of the embassy?

In its Tuesday issue, The New York Daily News highlighted the contras t with a scathing cover photo of Ivanka Trump, smiling wide, and pointing to a picture-insert of the violent clashes on the Gaza border.

"Every casualty on the border is a victim of Hamas' war crimes, every death is a result of Hamas' terror activity, and these casualties are exclusively Hamas' responsibility", Danon said in a statement. "Certainly we feel no closer today than we did six months ago". It is a settlement, not an embassy.

Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas accused Israel of "massacres", while Amnesty International called the violence an "abhorrent violation" of human rights.

"Thank you, President Trump, and thank you all, for making the alliance between America and Israel stronger than ever", he added. Others before him - like Bill Clinton - had only agreed to the idea in principle, Kushner said.

Israel considers the entire city its capital, while the Palestinians see east Jerusalem as the capital of their future state.

Violent clashes erupted along Gaza's border as the United States opened its Israel embassy in Jerusalem in a ceremony attended by a White House delegation and Israeli officials.

A United Nations official describes that land as "occupied territory", under two agreements: the Fourth Geneva Convention signed in 1949 and 1907's Hague Convention.

He has argued that it helps make peace possible by taking Jerusalem "off the table", but many have pointed out he has not announced any concessions in return from Israel. These are considered illegal under global law, although Israel disputes this.

She has opposed Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the country's capital.
