"It's up to us John Doe and public to do what we need to do to show solidarity with the people of Palestine".

Council members were also divided over whether the installation of a US embassy in Jerusalem on Monday - the fulfillment of a campaign promise of President Donald Trump - helped fuel the violence.

Many protesters waved Palestinian flags or carried signs calling for an end to "the Israeli occupation", sometimes eliciting a honk from passing drivers.

Addressing a U.N. Security Council meeting on recent deadly violence in Gaza, Haley said: "No country in this chamber would act with more restraint than Israel has".

"We started to line up altogether and then walk forward steps together". Thousands massed on the edges of the Gaza Strip to protest the American move, and economic hardships in Gaza. Israeli snipers have opened fire on unarmed protesters since the Great March of Return began on March 30.

Speaking at the demonstration today, Chairperson of the Ireland-Palestinian Solidarity Campaign Fatin Al Tamimi said that people in Palestine were losing hope.

Gaza was calmer on Tuesday, which for Palestinians marks what they refer to as "Nakba Day" - marking what they call the "catastrophe" of their expulsion when Israel was created 70 years ago. Her mother and father cradled her body, wrapped in a white funeral shroud, as they walked to the graveyard to bury her. Gunshots were fired in the air.

Palestinians, who view the eastern part of Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state, were demonstrating against the opening of the new U.S. Embassy.

"For the people of Gaza, yesterday was a day of tragedy", said Nickolay Mladenov, UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, who briefed the Council from the Middle East by video teleconference.

In an interview with Egypt Today, Fatah spokesman Osama Al-Qawasmi deemed the decision to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem a manifestly absurd decision that hinders all the peace processes that are being carried out in the region.

While addressing a UNSC meeting Riyad Mansour said that the United States was responsible for the Palestinian deaths.

In 2011, at least 22 Palestinians were shot dead as they tried to enter Israel by crossing the Syrian border.

Palestinians resumed their protests on Tuesday, but only dozens turned out.

"Rather, the violence comes from those who reject the existence of the state of Israel in any location", Haley said. The draft statement demands that all countries comply with a decades-old Security Council resolution that called on them not to have embassies in contested Jerusalem.

"It does not undermine the prospects for peace in any way, and yet, for some, this is supposedly a cause for violence", she said.
