People cheer as Hamas leader Ismail Haniya speaks to protesters at the border fence with Israel in Gaza City on Tuesday, a day after Israeli soldiers killed 60 Palestinians and wounded an estimated 2,700.

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.

After Trump announced that the USA would move its embassy to Jerusalem at least ten other countries said they meant to follow suit.

Calm mostly prevailed on May 15, but two further deaths were reported. "It must protect its borders from infiltration and terrorism, but it must do so proportionally".

Global condemnation of the killing by Israeli security forces of 60 Palestinians in Gaza intensified yesterday, though the United States praised the "restraint" shown by Israel.

The State Department said Tuesday the draft "was too one-sided" and unacceptable to the US because it did not mention Hamas' incitement of violence along the Gaza border. "This is how determined they are to make the lives of the Palestinian people miserable". They held signs proclaiming "70 years too many" and "Stop Israel's illegal occupation".

"Let's remember that the Hamas terrorist organization has been inciting violence for years, long before the United States chose to move our embassy", Haley said.

"My family is trying to turn our frustration and anger and sadness into activism and demonstrations like this", Ghanimah said. "These were not protests". He said the Palestinians were rolling burning tires toward the barrier, calling the group, "guilty of exploiting the innocent people of Gaza as human shields".

He returned to the U.S. a week after he was last summoned.

"Of course, this massacre is taking place at the same time when the United States of America illegally and unilaterally and in a provocative way is opening its embassy", he said.

The carnage unfolded several dozen kilometres away from where the Trump administration was following through on its decision to move the USA embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv.

Kuwait, which requested Tuesday's meeting, had tried to get council members to sign on Monday to a statement that would have demanded that all countries comply with a decades-old Security Council resolution that called on them not to have embassies in contested Jerusalem.

Haley told the Security Council that Hamas, with the help of Iran, was to blame for the violence and pointed to Molotov cocktails being flown into Israel via kites.
