Egypt president Sisi says in talks with Palestinians, Israel

Rioting along Israel's border with the Gaza Strip

Israeli Ambassador Danny Danon told the council that the global community had done too little to stop violence on the part of Palestinians.

Nearly a month of demonstrations was staged to call for the right of Palestinians to return to their ancestral land, and they culminated during the controversial inauguration of a new US embassy in Jerusalem on Monday. For the sake of Israelis and Palestinians alike, the United States must act urgently to help relieve the humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip. Those relations are based on the commitment to worldwide law, United Nations resolutions and human rights.

A bitter row over the deaths has erupted between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, a strong backer of the Palestinian cause.

Israel considers the entire city its capital, while the Palestinians see east Jerusalem as the capital of their future state.

Former Guatemalan foreign minister Gabriel Orellana has said Morales's embassy move has the effect of banishing his country "to the fringes of the UN".

Most countries keep their embassies in Tel Aviv, saying the status of the holy city should be decided in peace talks between Israel and Palestinians, which want to have their own capital there. You were always among the first.

The move is also seen by some as a gesture to elicit USA support at a time when Morales stands accused by Guatemalan prosecutors of accepting illegal campaign contributions.

The protests were directed at a crippling blockade imposed by Israel and Egypt after the Islamic militant group seized power in Gaza in 2007.

The Israeli military has come under heavy global criticism for firing on unarmed protesters, and faces accusations of using disproportionate force.

Israeli forces killed 60 Palestinians on Monday when tens of thousands of Palestinians had gathered near the border, while smaller numbers approached the fence and sought to break through.

Israel accuses Hamas, with whom it has fought three wars since 2008, of seeking to use the demonstrations as cover to carry out violence.

While some members said the U.N.'s most powerful body needed to speak as one to try to calm the volatile situation - and the Palestinian envoy implored, "When are you going to act?" - a proposed statement had stalled Monday after the USA blocked it. A large number of students and teachers participated in the protest.

Israel launched an overnight raid in Gaza after it said gunfire from the territory targeted its soldiers and damaged a building.

"They tell women to go forward".

The trucks entered Tuesday, as medical facilities in Gaza were struggling to treat hundreds of people wounded by Israeli fire the day before.

On Tuesday, the army released a video that appeared to show protesters detonating several explosions near the border. They said the Palestinians would not accept medicine "from the murderers of our people". USA ambassador to Israel David Friedman also attended Wednesday's ceremony.

More than 100 Palestinians have been killed in seven weeks of protests, mainly from Israeli sniper fire.

The high casualty toll triggered a diplomatic backlash against Israel and new charges of excessive use of force against unarmed protesters.

The Israeli premier spoke of Guatemala's early recognition of the state of Israel after its creation in 1948 and said he would visit the country of 16-million on his next visit to Latin America.

At the same time, Israel has found other nations following the USA lead and rallying to its defense.

As one commentator puts it well: The decision to move the American embassy in Israel to Jerusalem is more unnecessary than it is stupid and unsafe, and it's pretty stupid and risky.
