The United States blamed Hamas for the violence.
"This is history!" Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared at the event.
Shapiro, who is now at the Institute for National Security Studies in Israel, said that while some us allies like Israel and Saudi Arabia have celebrated the pullout, the reaction "will soon be followed by some degree of concern about whether the administration is sufficiently focused, prepared, staffed and able to devote the necessary attention when it's also managing another major foreign policy challenge in North Korea at the same time". Almost 3,000 Palestinians have been injured in the protests so far.
"A majority of Gaza's 2 million people are descendants of refugees, and the protests have been billed as the 'Great March of Return, ' to long-lost homes in what is now Israel", AP reported. Human Rights Watch denounced a "bloodbath".
He said: "We hear that they opened an embassy today".
South Africa recalled its ambassador.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in lockstep with Mr Trump over fulfilling a longstanding U.S. promise to move the embassy from Tel Aviv to the holy city and over Washington's withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal last week, hailed the move.
Netanyahu defended the use of force, saying "every country has the obligation to defend its borders".
On Dec. 6, Trump, fulfilling a campaign promise, announced the official recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital and his plan to move the embassy from Tel Aviv to the city that hosts sites sacred to Christians, Jews and Muslims. "The American Congress has, for many years now, recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel". Meanwhile, Trump celebrates move of USA illegal embassy and his Arab collaborators move to divert attention.
Likewise, Hamas and other militant factions in Gaza that are urging Palestinians to rush the fence have no maximum number of people they are willing to send to inevitable martyrdom.
Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said in a message to Gazans "we will protect our civilians with all our means and not enable the fence to be crossed". Palestinians seek East Jerusalem as the capital of a state they want to establish in the occupied West Bank and the Gaza Strip.
"This was a natural move made by the administration", he said.
"But it also marks the anniversary of what Palestinians called their nakba - or catastrophe, a reference to the uprooting of hundreds of thousands who fled or were expelled from what is now Israel during the 1948 war surrounding Israel's independence", it wrote. The people of Gaza have become cannon fodder; more will likely die on Tuesday when the protests continue.
This move has been condemned and criticized by the global community.
South Africa has withdrawn its ambassador to Israel after Israeli forces killed more than 50 Palestinians in the Gaza strip on Monday.
Most countries say the status of Jerusalem should be determined in a final peace settlement, and say moving their embassies now would prejudge any such deal.
The UN chief reiterated his support for the two-state solution "with Palestine and Israel living side by side in peace, each with its capital in Jerusalem".
