Palestinians gathered on Tuesday for fresh protests along the Gaza border, a day after Israeli forces killed dozens there as the United States embassy opened in Jerusalem on what was the conflict's bloodiest day in years.

Netanyahu had previously taken to Twitter to call Erdogan a "Hamas supporter" and said the Turkish leader should not try to "preach morality" to Israel.

Israeli Ambassador Danny Danon defended the use of force, calling the events at the border "violent riots". "I suggest that he not preach morality to us".

Kuwait's Ambassador Mansour al-Otaibi and other ambassadors widely criticized the US move at the meeting, saying it has the potential to ignite even more violence in an already unstable region.

On Monday, first daughter and presidential adviser Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner commemorated the official relocation of the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem ― a controversial decision her father, U.S. President Donald Trump, made in December.

The US on Monday blocked a Kuwait-drafted UN Security Council statement that would have expressed "outrage and sorrow at the killing of Palestinian civilians" and called for an independent investigation, UN diplomats said. It was the highest Palestinian single-day death toll since the 2014 Gaza war.

Hundreds of Israelis demonstrate in central Tel Aviv against the killing of 60 unarmed Palestinians at the Gaza protest the day before, May 15, 2018.

At the United Nations general assembly in December 2017, nine countries, including the USA and Israel, voted against a resolution that, in effect, called on the U.S. to withdraw its recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

After President Trump's announcement previous year, the Czech Republic has said that Jerusalem is the "capital of the State of Israel, in its 1967 borders".

The military has said presumably less lethal rubber-coated steel pellets are not effective in keeping demonstrators from the fence.

While there has been plenty of criticism internationally about President Trump's decision, some countries have supported the move and said they plan to change the location of their diplomatic headquarters.

"The Israeli ambassador was told that our envoy to Israel was called back for consultations, and was informed that it would be appropriate for him to go back to his country for some time", a Turkish Foreign Ministry source said.

Rejecting criticism of Israel voiced by other United Nations ambassadors, Haley said that none of their countries would have acted with the same moderation.

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

Earlier on Tuesday, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said Israel had acted with exceptional "restraint" in dealing with the clashes on the Gaza border.
