Palestinian Death Toll Rises in Protests

Palestinian demonstrators were seen taking cover from Israeli fire and tear gas after protests erupted at the Israel-Gaza border on Monday.

The protests were in response to the new U.S. Embassy opening in Jerusalem.

The Gaza Health Ministry said that Israeli soldiers shot and killed at least 52 Palestinians.

Another 1,204 Palestinians were shot and wounded. 1,200 others suffered other types of injuries, including from tear gas.

Israeli military officials said that troops came under fire in some areas.
