Netanyahu had previously taken to Twitter to call Erdogan a "Hamas supporter" and said the Turkish leader should not try to "preach morality" to Israel. When we got back home, the baby stopped crying and I thought she was asleep.

He has called an emergency meeting of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation in Istanbul on Friday to discuss the Gaza violence.

On BBC Radio Four's Today programme, Israel's ambassador to the United Kingdom, Mark Regev said that following the U.S. decision, there are Latin American and European countries that will also be moving their embassies to Jerusalem.

He called for renewed and genuine worldwide efforts to find a just and lasting solution to the conflict, based on the existence of two states, Israel and Palestine, within the framework of the relevant United Nations pronouncements.

When asked by journalists about the USA stance on the rising death toll, the highest in one day since the 2014 Israeli assault on Gaza, White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah responded by saying that "We believe Hamas bears the responsibility".

Belgian MEP Maria Arena says it's not the right time to call for that recognition.

"When we talk about peaceful resistance, we are deceiving the public", Zahhar said.

Pakistan has noted with grave concern that despite calls by the worldwide community to comply with UN General Assembly and Security Council resolutions on the two-state solution, the United States is moving its Embassy to Jerusalem, reported by Radio Pakistan.

Rejecting criticism of Israel voiced by other United Nations ambassadors, Haley said that none of their countries would have acted with the same moderation.

Hours later, Israel responded by expelling the Turkish consul in Jerusalem.

Following Monday's border clashes Turkey pulled its ambassadors to Israel and the US and expelled the Israeli ambassador in Ankara.

Mladenov also said Hamas "must not use the protests as cover to attempt to place bombs at the fence and create provocations" by hiding its operatives among the protesters.

Though on opposite sides of the street, police provided protective barriers for both sides.

"As American Jews, we see Netanyahu saying he speaks for all Jews, and we're saying that's not true", volunteer organizer Sarah Brammer-Shlay told HuffPost on Tuesday, saying actions in Israel were "pushed by our government".

Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas called the new embassy "a U.S. settlement in East Jerusalem".
