Thousands rally in Turkey and Jordan to protest U.S. embassy move

According to the Hamas health ministry, around 50 Palestinians have been killed since protests and clashes began along the Gaza border on March 30 and hundreds of others have been wounded from gunfire. Hundreds of Palestinians gathered on the Gaza border Friday for the sixth week of protests in which dozens have already been killed by Israeli fire.

The protests also took place at the contact points in different cities, including the northern entrance of Bethlehem and Ramallah.

Trump announced in December that the USA would move its embassy to Jerusalem and recognise the city as the capital of Israel. On that day, protests are timed to coincide with the planned move of the U.S. Embassy in Israel to contested Jerusalem, where Palestinians hope to establish a future capital.

"My own discussions with many different Palestinians is that there remains a significant interest for peace, for a better life, for better education ... and all the things that could be made available in this region if there was more peace and less violence".

At previous peace talks, the Palestinians have always demanded, along with sovereignty in the West Bank, Gaza, East Jerusalem and the Old City, a "right of return" to Israel for Palestinian refugees who left or were forced out of Israel when it was established.

Israel has warned that it will prevent any border breach.

Israeli news site Ynet said three Israelis were detained after they attempted to fly burning kites into Gaza but instead caused fires on Israeli agricultural lands. As a result of the embargo the overwhelming majority of Gaza's residents live in poverty and 43 percent of the population is unemployed, the highest jobless rate in the world. It was the final event in a seven-week schedule of protests at the borderevery Friday, leading to Nakba Day. It's located in the residential neighborhood of Arnona - in part on no man's land between East and West Jerusalem - but it's not a fortress, like the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv, and it's not a attractive old Ottoman-era building like the current U.S. Consulate in Jerusalem, which is located closer to the Old City and primarily deals with the Palestinians.
