Hamas offers Israel quiet on Gaza border if airstrikes reduced

At least 59 people, including unarmed women and six children, were shot dead while more than 2,700 others were injured by Israeli soldiers during protests over President Donald Trump's controversial relocation of the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv, a move that has been praised by Israelis but has enraged Palestinians and the governments of other countries, including in the European Union, and Iran and Russian Federation. Nakba Day not only honors the displacement of Palestinians, but also advocates for their right to return.

The US embassy move on Monday was accompanied by mass protests and clashes along the Gaza border that saw Israeli forces kill 60 Palestinians.

The death toll makes Monday the bloodiest day in Gaza since the conflict of 2014, he said.

On Monday, an estimated 35,000 people participated in demonstrations in Gaza and hundreds of people in the West Bank cities of Ramallah, Bethlehem, Hebron, Jericho, Nablus, and East Jerusalem, as part of the "Great March of Return" as well as in protest of the relocation of the USA embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, he said.

Eventually, pro-Palestinian demonstrators took to the streets. While South Africa and Turkey recalled their ambassadors to Israel because of the USA decision that has been widely criticised by its Western allies, some African countries sent representatives to witness the official opening of the embassy in disputed Jerusalem.
