"They had clear instructions to bring a weapon - a knife or a gun - and force their way across the border, not use them unless there was need to capture Israeli soldiers and residents", Baror said.

At a special meeting of the United Nations Security Council on Wednesday morning (AEST), Ms Haley denied the violence in Gaza was a response to the new U.S. embassy, saying the blame laid with the Palestinian Hamas party.

"This is the life of the Palestinian people, and those who think that opening the embassy opens doors to peace, let them look at what is really happening in the Gaza Strip", he added.

Senate urged government to coordinate with the worldwide community to raise these human rights violations globally with a view to seeking a final settlement of both Palestine and Kashmir disputes in accordance with United Nations resolutions.

Last week, the Israeli government said the ongoing border protests constituted a "state of war" in which global humanitarian law did not apply.

In Umm al-Fahm, hundreds of Palestinian citizens of Israel marched alongside Arab members of Knesset.

During the debate in the British parliament, many lawmakers condemned Israel's use of live fire against protesters.

The United States ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, has defended Israel for its "restraint" in dealing with protests that left at least 60 Palestinians dead in violent clashes with the military.

The United States has blocked the adoption of a Security Council statement that would have called for an independent probe into the violence, diplomats said.

Some funerals were held on Monday, while others were taking place Tuesday.

"By confirming the transfer of its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, the United States destroys the peace process between Israel and Palestine and pushes the conflict of both peoples towards a bloody confrontation", the South American leader tweeted hours after the US government opened its new diplomatic headquarters in Israel. Israel regards all of Jerusalem, including the eastern sector it captured in the 1967 Middle East war and annexed in a move that is not recognised internationally, as its "eternal and indivisible capital".

That deal was strongly backed by the United States, which was keen to see Israel make up with one of its very few key Muslim partners.
