Palestinian demonstrators take cover from Israeli fire and tear gas during a protest against USA embassy move to Jerusalem and ahead of the 70th anniversary of Nakba, at the Israel-Gaza border in the southern Gaza Strip, May 14, 2018. The BBC reports that Palestinians hurled stones and incendiary devices, while the Israeli military used tear gas and live fire from snipers.
The demonstrations come after a week of protests, which have called for the right for Palestinians to return to the land they were expelled from during Israel's creation in 1948.
The embassy opening occurred just a day after Israel celebrated Jerusalem Day, which commemorated the establishment of Israeli control over the Old City of Jerusalem following the Six-Day War in 1967.
Protests are expected to resume today.
With the United States moving the embassy Monday from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a city that the worldwide community has considered neutral due to competing ownership claims by the two sides, the protests bubbled up.
The pan African body reiterated its solidarity with the Palestinian people in "their legitimate quest for an independent and sovereign state with East Jerusalem as its capital".
However, Shahad Kahlladi, who spoke at the Ottawa rally, stressed that moving the embassy further inflames the current conflict.
"You can only build peace on truth, and the truth is that Jerusalem has been and will always be the capital of the Jewish people, the capital of the Jewish state", he said.
Alexander quoted a statement from France's Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian calling on Israeli authorities "to exercise discernment and restraint in the use of force that must be strictly proportionate".
"We ought to encourage them to promote more and more peace and stability and peaceful negotiations", said Agil.
In Washington, White House spokesman Raj Shah condemned Hamas over the deadly clash and defended Israel for its response. It is the home of the Israeli legislature and the Israeli supreme court and Israel's prime minister and president.
"On December 6th, 2017, at my direction, the United States finally and officially recognized Jerusalem as the true capital of Israel".
Palestinians were not protesting the embassy move alone.
The United Nations said Israel's actions are "outrageous human rights violations".
Ankara earlier on Monday accused the U.S. of sharing responsibility with Israel over the deaths in Gaza.
