It's another day of protests along Israel's border with Gaza rocking the region.

To this day, many displaced Palestinians and their families have been denied reentry by Israeli authorities.

Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas accused Israel of "massacres", while Amnesty International called the violence an "abhorrent violation" of human rights. We have already pronounced ourselves that the relocation of the Jewish capital to Jerusalem is not in line with the relevant United Nations resolution. "Make no mistake, Hamas is pleased with the results from yesterday", she said, adding that the U.S. decision to move its embassy to Jerusalem was the right thing to do.

Deputy Ambassador Michael Baror said they were sorry for the loss of lives, and added that their problem is with the regime, not Palestinians.

"The blood of innocent Palestinians is on the hands of the United States", he said.

While no fatalities were reported in the West Bank, where limited clashes took place between demonstrators and Israeli security forces at several checkpoints, the situation in Gaza deteriorated throughout the day, particularly along the perimeter fence, said Mladenov.

Protesters burnt tyres, sending huge plumes of black smoke into the sky, threw stones and some of them brandished knives at Israeli soldiers, including snipers perched on earthworks.

This was corroborated on Tuesday by Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, who blamed Hamas for the dozens of deaths in Gaza for "pushing people to the border".

He spoke to Melbourne Radio 3AW on Tuesday.

He strongly condemned the disproportionate use of force by the Israeli army, which resulted in the killing of more than 50 Palestinian demonstrators, while many more were injured. 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.

Faki said the relocation of the USA embassy will only heighten tensions in the region and complicate the search for a lasting solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, as illustrated by Monday's clashes.
