Deadliest day in Gaza since 2014. Ivanka Trump unveiled the new US Embassy in Jerusalem as Palestinian protesters marched in Gaza.

Israeli forces used live rounds and so far between 31 and 52 Palestinians have been killed and between 2000 and 2400 seriously injured (many conflicting reports)

Hamas should realize it's a bad idea to run across a militarized border throwing molotov coctails at the people with guns. Really a bad idea in a war zone, inevitably people are going to end up dead.

Why does everyone always blame Israel instead of who is to actually blame.
From the few level headed folks who aren't blaming Israel, they are criticizing the extreme tactics/results of live round use instead of more non lethal tactics being tried first.

These people should understand though that Israel has had an unofficial "shoot to kill" policy when it comes to Palestine for at least a year now

Nobody level headed at all. That is propaganda. They are killing armed terrorists trying to kill innocent people.

This senseless loss of life can be blamed completely on those who are using this occasion to incite violence purely for their own ends. One independent country chose to acknowledge what another independent country says is their capital, that's all that has happened. Turkey, Iran and other countries certainly wouldn't allow the the UN to dictate what city their capital is. This situation will only continue to get worse until the international community starts to place the blame squarely on the shoulders of those responsible for it and hold them accountable. Anybody trying to place the blame elsewhere is only contributing to more violence in the future as those actually causing it realize it's working in their favor.

Best one I've seen yet was a journalist in Germany questioning Israeli tactics asking why Israel was using live ammo when the protesters were only using rocks, Molotov cocktails and the occasional grenade :huh::huh::blink::blink:
