Israeli snipers have killed 16 Palestinians and hundreds more have been injured amid violent protests over the opening of America's embassy later today.
A 14-year-old and two men in their 20s were among those shot dead as thousands gathered at five spots along the Gaza border.
At least 700 more have been injured with dozens of them hit by live bullets, according to Gaza's Health Ministry after the army warned that anyone attempting to approach the security fence would be risking their lives.
It comes as a White House delegation and Israeli officials gathered for an inauguration ceremony for the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem.
US President Donald Trump tossed aside decades of precedent when he recognised the city as Israel's capital in December - a decision that sparked global outcry, Palestinian anger and exuberant praise from Israelis.
Russia said today it feared the embassy opening would increase tension in the Middle East while Turkey's President Tayyip Erdogan warned the US it had forfeited its role as a mediator in the region and was now 'part of the problem rather than the solution'.
As violent clashes broke out this morning, Trump, in a tweet, hailed the scheduled opening as 'a great day for Israel'. Trump made no reference to the violence in an early morning tweet, instead inviting Twitter followers to watch live coverage of the embassy opening.
Amid heightened tensions in the region, al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri last night called for followers to carry out jihad against America.
