UN Ambassador Nikki Haley on Tuesday lauded Israel for its "restraint" during deadly clashes with Palestinian protesters and blamed the violence on those who want to destroy a "United Nations member state".

"We will continue to engage with Israel and Palestine and try to be part of a future peace process".

The protest was spurred by the opening ceremony the same day of a new USA embassy in Jerusalem, after President Donald Trump's controversial decision to recognize the city as Israel's capital and relocate the American mission from Tel Aviv, where nearly all other countries have diplomatic representatives.

A total of 60 Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces on the day Trump relocated the Israeli embassy.

The aid agency Médecins Sans Frontières said it had doubled its capacity in Gaza to provide additional surgery for those injured by gunshots.

"Most of the people [from terror groups] killed belonged to the Hamas terror group, and some to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad", an IDF spokesperson said, according to The Times of Israel.

"We started to line up altogether and then walk forward steps together". However, the White House, like Haley, on Monday refuted any connection to protests at the Gaza strip. Bassem Ibrahim, who said he was shot in the leg by Israeli troops, said at one stage he had feared losing the limb because of the delays.

She attended funerals Tuesday, and she says she plans to go back to the fence to demonstrate again on Wednesday.

He called for renewed and genuine global efforts to find a just and lasting solution to the conflict, based on the existence of two states, Israel and Palestine, within the framework of the relevant United Nations pronouncements.

"This is how determined they are to make the lives of the Palestinian people miserable", she said. Gunshots were fired in the air.

Unrest caused by the USA decision to move its Israeli embassy to Jerusalem reached St. Louis on Tuesday, coinciding with a downtown protest marking the 70th anniversary of "Nakba", or catastrophe, when 700,000 Palestinians fled or were driven from their homes during the Arab-Israeli War of 1948.

Foreign Affairs Minister Simon Coveney said earlier expressed his "profound shock" at the killings in Gaza and said that nothing he had seen from the protesters had justified that response from Israeli troops.

Protests began after the USA embassy was officially opened in Jerusalem on Monday (local time).

"I don't think it hurts the peace plan", Shah said.

Yesterday, tens of thousands had gathered near the border while smaller numbers of stone-throwing Palestinians approached the fence and sought to break through, with Israeli snipers positioned on the other side.

At an emergency session of the U.N. Security Council on Tuesday U.S. Ambassador to the U.N.

The US "should not close their eyes to a situation on the ground", he said. The previous high was 17, which happened on the day the protests started on March 30.

Haley added the embassy "reflects the will of the American people" and "our sovereign right to decide the location of our embassy, a right that everyone in this room claims for their own country".

ABC News' Molly Hunter contributed reporting from the Gaza Strip.
