As it happened: At least 58 Palestinians killed and thousands injured by Israeli forces amid protests at US embassy in JerusalemAt least 58 Palestinians were killed and more than 2,000 people wounded in protests at the border fence between the Gaza Strip and Israel, according to Palestinian officials, on the same day the US fulfiled its controversial promise to move its embassy to the contested city of Jerusalem. The Israeli military said the protests were being used as cover for attacks on soldiers.
