Israeli military drops warning leaflets into Gaza as border protests build

The US said it chose the inauguration date to coincide with the 70th anniversary of Israel's establishment.

On the Gaza border, at least 38 Palestinians were killed by Israeli gunfire in the latest in a round of protests dubbed the "Great March of Return", health officials said.

President Donald Trump says the US remains "fully committed" to pursuing a Mideast peace deal as it opens its controversial new embassy in Jerusalem.

Palestinians claim that almost 1,000 protesters have been injured so far.

In an annual ritual, tens of thousands of Israelis marched through Jerusalem's Old City to mark the day. And it knows if it sends kids to the border to break through the border Israeli soldiers have to defend that border that's going to get media attention.

Critics have faulted Israeli forces for using live fire, while Israel says its actions are necessary for security as people threaten the border fence.

Israel has warned Gaza residents they will be risking their lives if they approach the border during a planned mass protest.

The question of Jerusalem is one of the thorniest issues in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

A larger site will be reportedly found later when the rest of the embassy moves from Tel Aviv.

The US delegation that has arrived for the inauguration includes, the US President's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner and his wife Ivanka, Deputy Secretary John Sullivan, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Trump's Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt.

Monday's inauguration ceremony at 4:00 pm (1300 GMT) will include around 800 guests - though not Trump himself - at what until now had been a USA consulate building in Jerusalem.

The Israeli government claims Jerusalem as its capital, but the Palestinian National Authority (PA) considers East Jerusalem to be Palestinian territory, illegally occupied by Israel since the 1967 Arab-Israeli War.

It remains to be seen just how many dead and wounded there are at the day's end, since Hamas champions staging deaths in such situations, and all too often, persons seen being evacuated in Red Crescent ambulances in Gaza are later seen walking around alive and well.

Unconfirmed reports on Monday afternoon said hundreds of protesters had breached the security fence that surrounds the blockaded enclave.

In the hours before the opening, Mr Trump tweeted it was "A great day for Israel!"

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has repeatedly called Trump's decision "historic", welcomed them at a reception on Sunday.

On Dec. 16, 2017, Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, in a move that triggered new violence in the region.

President Trump's decision to move the embassy from Tel Aviv broke with generations of global consensus that Jerusalem's status should be settled as part of a two-state peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians.

Most countries say Jerusalem's status should be determined in a final peace settlement, and that moving their embassies now would prejudge any such deal.

Israel immediately annexed east Jerusalem - home to the city's most sensitive Jewish, Muslim and Christian holy sites - in a move that has not received worldwide recognition.

"They're very cheerful, happy and good people and I'm very proud of our partners in Guatemala", Barkat said.

Professor Yossi Mekelberg, from Chatham House's Middle East and North Africa Programme, told The Independent: "Jerusalem is holy to Jews, Muslims and Christians; it is one of the most sensitive places on planet Earth".
