Middle East countries as well as United Kingdom and European Union have condemned Israel's violence against Palestinian protesters in the wake of USA relocation of its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Mr Netanyahu retorted in a statement: "Erdogan is among Hamas's biggest supporters and there is no doubt that he well understands terrorism and slaughter".

Israeli Ambassador Danny Danon defended the use of force, calling the events at the border "violent riots". "We would have come to this protest today anyway, but now we're even more amped up and I'm personally going to use this energy and sadness for activism".

The cycle of violence in Gaza needs to end, said Mladenov.

He says President Trump's decision to follow through on his campaign promise and move the embassy sends a message of strength to America's enemies.

The group was heavily involved in the Second Intifada of the early 2000s, and on Monday called for a new intifada as "the natural response" to mounting deaths on the border between Israel and Gaza.

The death toll makes Monday the bloodiest day in Gaza since the conflict of 2014, he said. "No, you are not right", Erdogan said. The demonstrations went peacefully, although one man was arrested in Ankara for throwing eggs and stones at the residence of the Israeli ambassador.

"It is outrageous and displays gross double-standards against the Jewish state", they said.


Palestinians view East Jerusalem, captured by Israel in a 1967 war, as the capital of a future independent state and see the USA move as backing Israel's desire to cement its rule over the whole city.

Ngcukayitobi called on International Relations and Cooperation Minister Lindiwe Sisulu to cut all ties with Israel and expel the country's ambassador to South Africa, Lior Keinan.

The ongoing protests in Gaza are part of the "March of Return", which first began on March 30 with the aim of condemning Israel's occupation and demanding their right to return.

Downing Street has warned the violence in Gaza, which has so far seen 58 Palestinians killed by Israeli troops, is "destructive to peace efforts".

Senate on Tuesday strongly condemned the atrocities committed by Israeli occupied forces against the innocent and defenceless people of Palestine and also rejected the moving of American Embassy to Jerusalem by the United States of America (USA).

As to whether he knows of any efforts to calm the situation by the Egyptians or any other player in the region, Amidror said that Egypt has the ability to speak with both sides.

In Umm al-Fahm, hundreds of Palestinian citizens of Israel marched alongside Arab members of Knesset.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas ordered a general strike across the Palestinian Territories on Tuesday and three days of national mourning.
