More protests are expected Tuesday along the Gaza border following a day of clashes in which Israeli forces killed at least 58 Palestinians and wounded more than 2,700. The State Department said Tuesday the draft "was too one-sided" and unacceptable to the us because it did not mention Hamas' incitement of violence along the Gaza border.

Her cousin and her neighbor were killed by Israeli troops during the protest, she said.

IDF spokesperson Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus described Albardawil's statement as proof that Hamas, which controls Gaza, is behind the violent Palestinian demonstrations at Israel's border.

The relocation of the U.S. mission "doesn't undermine the prospect of peace in any way", she said, despite the Palestinians, who want East Jerusalem to become the capital of their future sovereign state, vigorously protesting against attempts by Israel to claim the historic city.

Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu said Guatemala was a "friend" which had also followed the USA to be the second country to recognise Israel 70 years ago.

We know now that accusation does not even come close to the truth. Israel responded to its envoy's expulsion by expelling Turkey's Jerusalem consul.

The status of Jerusalem is one of the thorniest obstacles to forging a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians, who with broad worldwide backing want East Jerusalem, captured by Israel in the 1967 Middle East war, as their capital.

The clashes continued on Tuesday with crowds of people flocking to the border.

The entire idea of a voice masquerading attack is to prolong the interaction time of a running app but without telling the user. Obvious use cases would be adding multiple "characters" to Skill-based games and experiences. "It's as easy as that".

Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Twitter Erdogan was in no position to "preach morality to us" because he supported the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas which rules Gaza. "No one would." Haley said.

Most world powers do not recognise Israeli sovereignty over the entire city and says its final status should be set in peace negotiations.

Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh made a brief visit on Sunday to Egypt, which has sought to act as a broker between the Islamists and other Palestinian factions, as well as Israel. Israel has repeatedly claimed that Hamas uses weekly border protests as cover to stage terror attacks.

"Hamas tell themselves, instead of having people revolt and turn against us, we'll send them to the fence and let them "revolt" there freely", he said.

"There is no mediation". But Palestinians, who have dubbed the protests the "Great March of Return", say they want to return to lands taken when Israel was created 70 years ago.

The protests, which have seen unsuccessful attempts to break through the fence, have dwindled since Monday, and the start of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan on Thursday may further dampen interest.

Friday's special session will begin at 0800 GMT Friday in Geneva to consider "the deteriorating human rights situation in the occupied Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem", the spokesman said in a statement.
