At least 55 Palestinians killed by Israeli troops in Gaza protests as US opens Jerusalem embassy

The United States has opened its embassy in Jerusalem. President Donald Trump had announced the decision to relocate the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in December last year, when he formally recognised the holy city as the capital of Israel. 

In a tweet, Trump hailed the opening of US embassy in Jerusalem. The inauguration ceremony was attended by a high-level American delegation including Trump's daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner, who serve as advisers to the US President. 

Meanwhile, at least 55 Palestinians have been killed and more than 2400 wounded by Israeli troops on the Gaza border, as mass protests erupted against the transfer of the US embassy to Jerusalem.

The Palestinian Authority has accused Israel of committing a terrible massacre as the death toll soared. Palestinian government spokesman sought international intervention calling it an urgent requirement given the terrible massacre in Gaza committed by the Israeli forces. The death toll made it the deadliest day in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict since the 2014 Gaza war.

The Israel Defense Forces in a statement accused Hamas, which controls Gaza, of leading a terrorist operation and inciting protesters who had amassed by the border fence with Israel to conduct what Israel described as terror attacks.
