Seven Palestinians shot dead on Gaza

Seven Palestinian protesters have now been killed by Israeli gunfire on the Gaza border

Israeli forces have shot and killed at least seven Palestinians during protests along the Gaza border which are coinciding with the opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem.

Palestinian health officials says at least 500 protesters were injured, at least 35 of them by live bullets during Monday's protests.

The Israeli military has accused Gaza's ruling Hamas movement of instigating Palestinians to try to breach Israel's border fence and said Israeli soldiers use live ammunition to stop them.
