TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – The Kremlin Tuesday said it was deeply concerned at Israel's killing of dozens of Palestinians in Gaza who were protesting the opening of the US embassy in al-Quds (Jerusalem).
"The situation, particularly the deaths of many dozens of Palestinians, cannot but provoke the deepest concern," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists, AFP reported.
The Gaza Health Ministry put the Palestinian death toll in Gaza border protests on Monday at nearly 60, including 57 people killed by Israeli army fire and a baby who died from tear gas inhalation.
The ministry said six of those killed by gunshots were minors.
It said more than 2,700 people were injured Monday, including 1,360 by live fire. Of the wounded, 130 are in serious or critical condition.
On Monday, tens of thousands of Palestinians rallied near Israel's border fence to protest a blockade of their territory and the move of the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to al-Quds that day.
