Turkey calls meeting of OIC after Palestinians killed in Gaza

Across Gaza, families were burying their dead.

It came a day after the United States transferred its Israel embassy from Tel Aviv to the disputed city of Jerusalem in a move that infuriated the Palestinians and was widely condemned.

They claim East Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state and see the USA move as backing Israeli control over the whole of the city - which Israel regards as its indivisible capital. More than 2400 had been wounded in the bloodiest day in the enclave since the 2014 war with Israel, according to the Gaza Health Ministry. "Worse than the first Friday (of the Gaza protests) and we're expecting it to be as bad tomorrow", Abu Sitteh said. They need to stop treating the situation between the Palestinians and the Israelis as if they are two sovereign states fighting each other.

The demonstrations in Gaza, which coincided with protests against the opening of the U.S. embassy on Monday, are part of a weeks-long Great March of Return movement calling for the right of return for Palestinian refugees to the areas they were forcibly expelled from in 1948.

The opening of the Embassy happened a day after Israel celebrated Jerusalem Day, marking what Israelis consider the reunification of the city.

Soldiers, including dozens of snipers, fired tear gas and live ammunition, while there were also tank and air strikes against Hamas posts. "The Hamas terrorist organization declares it intends to destroy Israel and sends thousands to breach the border fence in order to achieve this goal". "We will continue to act firmly to protect our sovereignty and our citizens", Mr Netanyahu tweeted.

"Who among us would accept this type of activity on your border?"

"I am happy that my son is a martyr", he said, though he was crying uncontrollably.

Israel has said it is acting in self-defense to defend its borders and communities.

Earlier, department of worldwide relations and cooperation (Dirco) spokesperson Ndivhuwo Mabaya said the South African government had taken a decision to recall ambassador Sisa Ngombane from Israel "with immediate effect".

Rupert Colville, spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, decried Israel's actions.

It also called on Hamas to prevent violence by protesters.

The signatories to the letter said they were writing "to express our profound concern about the lack of implementation" of the resolution.

The demonstrations took place amid the 70th anniversary of the formation of Israel and the move of US Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. That is what the United Nations states, so if you are to move the embassy to East Jerusalem, you're declaring war.

The status of Jerusalem goes to the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

"These are 2 million Palestinians that live in the most crowded area in the world", Palestinian-American Anas Amireh said. The decision fueled unrest across the Middle East and has been condemned by the majority of the global community. It effectively annexed the sector, though this was not recognised by any countries until Mr Trump's declaration in December 2017.

He has argued that it helps make peace possible by taking Jerusalem "off the table", but many have noted he has not announced any concessions in return from Israel.
