Jared Kushner Says Palestinian Protestors Are 'Part of the Problem'

A spokesperson for the prime minister said the UK's position has not changed, and that it disagreed with US President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and move the US embassy from Tel Aviv.

But Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah said Mr Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital in December and the relocation of the embassy were "blatant violations of global law". But Israeli and USA officials were determined not to let the violence diminish the embassy celebration.

Acording to Gaza health officials, so far at least 52 people have died, and there is serious concern that number could rise significantly.

For months, Palestinians have been protesting Israel and Egypt's blockade of where they live.

A total of 86 foreign ambassadors in Israel were invited to the opening ceremony of the USA embassy in Jerusalem on Monday, while 40 of them accepted the invitation.

On March 19 Abbas labels the U.S. ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, a "son of a dog". "It will remain our capital for all time", said Netanyahu, who later hosted members of the official White House delegation at a celebratory dinner. "That is why President Trump has called many times, including right now, on all parties to maintain the status quo of Jerusalem's holy sites". They view the relocation of the U.S. embassy as a one-sided move that invalidates America's role as an impartial peace broker in the region.

President Trump made a campaign promise to relocate the embassy.

Amnesty International said Israel's "use of excessive force in Gaza" was an "abhorrent violation of international law".

"Congratulations!" tweeted President Trump.

"It's a testament to the unbreakable spirit of the Jewish people", Trump said.

Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi said the killing of protesters was a crime that would only produce more violence. "I believe peace is within reach if we dare to believe the future can be different from the past".

The U.S. delegation was welcomed by Netanyahu and his wife Sunday night with a gala. He said the United States "remains fully committed to facilitating a lasting peace agreement".

According to al-Qidra, at least 39 Palestinians were "seriously injured" on Monday by intense cross-border fire by the Israeli army.

The Gaza Health Ministry said more than 40 Palestinians were killed and more than 1,700 wounded by the Israeli military near the Gaza border on Monday alone.

He added that the Palestinians protesting in Gaza were "part of the problem, and not part of the solution". The doors opened at 4 p.m., during in a 90-minute ceremony led by U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman.
