Monday was the deadliest day in the region since the 2014 Gaza war, as 60 Palestinians were killed and more than 2,700 wounded amid protests over the USA embassy's move to Jerusalem.

In a response statement, Netanyahu said that "Erdoğan is among Hamas's biggest supporters and there is no doubt that he well understands terrorism and slaughter".

Boyd Barrett also called for the immediate expulsion of the Israeli ambassador to Ireland, a call that was taken up by other speakers at the event and the crowd.

Yildirim said after Friday's summit a giant rally would be held at the vast Yenikapi meeting area in Istanbul under the slogan of "Stop the Oppression" to express solidarity with the Palestinians.

Palestinian diplomats say they welcome the Trudeau government's decision not to attend the controversial opening of the new American embassy in Jerusalem on Monday.

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. At least 60 people were killed and more than 2,000 injured, Gaza officials said.

"When we talk about peaceful resistance, we are deceiving the public", Zahhar said.

"Make no mistake, Hamas is pleased with the results from yesterday", she said.




"Hamas violence does not justify Israel firing on unarmed protesters", Sanders said.

"The Hamas terrorist organization has been inciting violence for years, long before the United States chose to move our embassy", U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley told the council.

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. 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.

Meanwhile, Britain called for an independent investigation into the violence on the Israel-Gaza border.

He also urged Hamas not to use protests as cover to plant bombs and "create provocations".

Its main ally the U.S. has backed that stance, with both saying that Hamas, the Islamist group that rules the coastal enclave, instigated the violence.

It was not immediately clear what might come out of the session given deep divisions between most of the world and the US, Israel's close ally.

Turkey has told Israel's ambassador to temporarily leave the country, while President Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused Israel of "state terror" and "genocide".
