Bulk289GAZA (PNIC):-At least 59 Palestinians were shot and killed by Israeli soldiers at the Gaza border on Monday as tensions continue to be high in protest against the opening of US embassy in occupied Jerusalem.

Spokesman for the Palestinian Health Ministry affirmed that Israeli soldiers at the border opened fire at the protesters killing 59 of them including two minors.

More than 2700 others were injured, many with live bullets, as Israeli forces escalate their attacks on peaceful protesters in Awda camps.

The protests are expected to continue throughout the day and on Tuesday in rejection of the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem and marking the 70th anniversary of the Palestinian Nakba, or catastrophe.

Ninety Palestinians, including 12 children and a woman, have been killed by Israeli soldiers since US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as capital of Israel in December 2017.
