>> What a glorious day.>> Israel celebrates the US Embassy opening in Jerusalem. After President Trump kept a pledge to recognize the Holy City as the Israeli capital.>> God bless the United States of America and God bless Jerusalem, the eternal undivided capital of Israel.>> But nearby Gaza burned, Palestinians reclaimed the city as their own.
Angry about the embassy, angry about the misery of life in Gaza. Fed up with nothing to lose, over 100,000 marched to the border with Israel, as drones fired tear gas from above. Dozens were shot dead by Israeli forces and over 2,000 were wounded in the biggest protest seen here in many years.
Israel say it's protecting its border, but the conflict stretched to outside the new embassy.>>
But scuffles broke out as protesters raised the Palestinian flag.>> This is about as close to the US embassy as protesters can get, and there's a very heavy police presence here.

And many here believe that if embassy start opening here in Jerusalem, it's simply adds weight to Israel's de facto claim over the entire city, before final negotiations have decided to status of the city.>> Inside the calm of the embassy, a video message from President Trump
>> Just like the opening of the embassy, when one celebrates, the other mourns.>> Allahu Akbar.
Tuesday Palestinians mark Nakba Day, know as the the catastrophe, when Israel was founded 70 years ago.>>
