Israeli troops kill 55 in Gaza as United States opens Jerusalem embassy

Israeli troops kill 55 in Gaza as United States opens Jerusalem embassy

"Today, we acknowledge that by putting our embassy here". Many Palestinians have taken offense to the USA moving its embassy on the anniversary of Nakba, which they see as adding insult to injury.

"We are asking the world and especially the Arab World to intervene immediately to end the massacre of our people", Palestinian Authority president Mahmoud Abbas said.

Earlier, Iran's parliament speaker Ali Larijani, a key establishment figure, said the United States had "entered a crisis of strategic decision-making that looks at the global arena immaturely and adventurously".

It was the deadliest day there since a devastating 2014 cross-border war and cast a shadow over Israel's inauguration of the new US Embassy in Occupied Jerusalem.

Israel says its forces are responding to violence emanating from the protests, which it views as a threat to its citizens' lives and property.

Palestinians feel that America has betrayed them, while the Jewish people think a peace can still be achieved.

As the death toll continues to mount, United Nations rights experts are urging Israel to stop using excessive force against Palestinian protesters.

The opening of the new embassy in Jerusalem coincides with the 70th anniversary of the establishment of the state of Israel. Palestinians seek East Jerusalem as the capital of a state they want to create. Trump tweeted: "A great day for Israel!"

The inauguration of the embassy, after Trump outraged the Arab world and stoked worldwide concern by recognising Jerusalem as Israel's capital in December, was hailed by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a "glorious day".

He said the decision is merely a recognition of reality, and he said it provides a firmer foundation for peace negotiations.

Turkish officials have repeatedly condemned US President Donald Trump's decision to move the US embassy, a key promise during his election campaign, warning it risked inflaming tensions. Tell us more about the Palestinian reaction to this.

"It is shameful to see countries participating with the USA and Israel in celebrating the former's embassy move to occupied Jerusalem in a clear and grave violation of worldwide law and (UN) Security Council resolutions", said Abul Gheit. President Trump, by recognizing history, you have made history.

"It certainly doesn't sit within the framework of a two-state solution". The United States setting up an Embassy there purposefully undermines the Palestinian position and makes peace less likely.

The clashes have raised doubts about Mr Trump's ambitions to broker what he once said would be the Middle East "deal of the century".
