Monday's inauguration of the new US embassy sparked the bloodiest day in four years at the Israel-Gaza border as Israeli forces killed more than 50 Palestinians.

Around 2,250 were also injured by either gunfire or tear gas.
The renewed unrest was an effort to break a border blockade on the region imposed by Israel in a conflict coinciding with the opening of the US embassy.

U.N. Middle East envoy Nickolay Mladenov briefed the Security Council on Tuesday on the latest Gaza violence.
Council members were also divided over whether the installation of a USA embassy in Jerusalem on Monday - the fulfillment of a campaign promise of President Donald Trump - helped fuel the violence.
