A Palestinian boy holds a flag during protests near the border between the Gaza Strip and Israel

The mother of a Leila al-Ghandour (C), a Palestinian baby of 8 months who according to Gaza's health ministry died of tear gas inhalation during clashes in East Gaza the previous day, holds her at the morgue of al-Shifa hospital in Gaza City on May 15, 2018 Fresh protests are expected a day after Israeli forces killed 59 Palestinians during clashes and protests along the Gaza border against the United States embassy opening in Jerusalem in the conflict's bloodiest day in years.

"The Congress party, reaffirms its solidarity with the people of Palestine in their just struggle for the creation of an independent state of Palestine within secure borders".

"The absence of a decision on the Israeli-Palestinian problem has been for decades one of the most serious factors of creating breeding ground for recruiting the youth to the extremists' organizations".

On Monday, the United States made history when it opened its US Embassy in Jerusalem.

UK's ambassador to the UN, Karen Pierce, called the violence, which produced the worst single-day death toll since the Israeli-Hamas war in 2014, "shocking and appalling" and wondered if extensive use of live fire by the Israeli Army was "justified".

Hamas in a statement on Thursday signaled it could resort to arms in response to this week's violence, but many analysts see that as unlikely for now. "Iran is supporting the riots in Gaza".

Since March 30, Palestinians have been holding mass rallies near the Gaza Strip border, known as the Great March of Return.

China joined calls for restraint, especially by the Israeli side, after 58 Palestinians were killed and thousands injured by bullets and tear gas in the violence.

Hamas denies Israeli accusations it orchestrated the demonstrations, saying it supports them but that they were organised independently.

At Tuesday's UNSC emergency meeting dedicated to the issue, Haley said, "Those who suggest that the Gaza violence has anything to do with the location of the American embassy are sorely mistaken".

Israel and the United States have resisted such calls, with the U.S. vetoing a Security Council statement this week calling for the establishment of an independent inquiry into the clashes.
