>> Eight-month-old Layla al-Ghandour, the youngest victim of the the Palestinian's bloodiest day for years. Dead from inhaling tear gas. One of dozens of Palestinians killed when Israeli troops fired at protests on Monday against the opening of the new US embassy in Jerusalem. More clashes erupted on Tuesday, these are in the West bank.
More than 2,000 people have been wounded. No Israeli deaths were reported. Israel says it was acting in self defense, but Gazans are calling it a massacre. Tuesday's expected to be the final day of the protest campaign, after six weeks. Even before the bloodshed, it was to be a day of grief, a commemoration of what the Palestinians call the Nakba, or catastrophe.
When Israel was created 70 years ago and hundreds of thousands of Palestinians fled or were driven from their homes in violence. Many ended up in the Gaza strip, a narrow band of misery now home to 2 million Palestinians. Blockaded by Israel and Egypt, and suffering a humanitarian crisis.
>> God bless the United States of America And God bless Jerusalem, the eternal undivided capital of Israel.>> US Embassy was moved to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv, fulfilling a promise by President Donald Trump, cementing his recognition of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital>> But Palestinians seek East Jerusalem as the capital of their future state.
And most countries say those competing claims should be settled in a final peace deal.
