Israel's violent crackdown on the protesters has drawn widespread criticism, with Kuwait urging a meeting of the UN Security Council to discuss the situation along the Gaza-Israel border.

It also called on Israel to respect the basic human rights of Palestinians as well as global law.

Senior Palestinian official Hanan Ashrawi said Palestinians were looking at past United Nations operations in various countries to see what form a protection effort might take.

A total of 60 Palestinians were killed and more than 2,400 injured during the clashes with Israeli Defense Forces as the so-called Great March of Return turned violent following the US Embassy's move to Jerusalem on May 14. "Israel will continue to defend its sovereignty and the security of its citizens against the terror and murderous violence of Hamas", said Danon.

YWN reported Monday that Hamas chief Ismail Haniyeh and other top Hamas leaders traveled to Egypt where they received stern warnings not to instigate the protests.

She also said the number of Marine security guards at the US embassy in Jerusalem had been increased.

In addition, Mevlut Cavusoglu called on the UN General Assembly to adopt a resolution condemning the relocation of the American Embassy to Jerusalem, because the resolution in the security Council the U.S. will again be able to block.

The council met after the bloodiest day for Palestinians since the 2014 Gaza war, while only miles away the United States opened its new embassy in Jerusalem.

"The cycle of violence in Gaza must end, it serves no one", she said "I repeat my call for such killings to be investigated thoroughly". Groups of demonstrators moved closer to the border fence, burned tires and threw stones or firebombs.

Except, of course, Israeli soldiers fired carefully.

"Israel is unjustly and against any objective reasoning accused of using disproportionate force against Hamas", the Embassy says. It said there had been 40,000 and that half of them were affiliated to Hamas. 50 of the 62 kills were Hamas members.

"It is imperative that everyone show the utmost restraint to avoid further loss of life, including all civilians, and particularly children, are not in harm's way", she said.
