Later in the day, Israeli leaders and a U.S. delegation including Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and President Donald Trump's daughter and son-in-law, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, were due to attend the opening of the embassy relocated from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

The Kremlin on Tuesday said it was deeply concerned at Israel's killing of dozens of Palestinians in Gaza who were protesting the opening of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem.

White House senior advisers Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner both attended the ceremony while US President Donald Trump spoke in a televised message.

Hundreds of police officers were deployed around the embassy compound and throughout the city, and many streets were closed down to secure the event.

There had already been weeks of protests and clashes along the Gaza border, with 106 Palestinians killed by Israeli fire there since March 30.

Palestinians delayed protesting at the Gaza border fence on Tuesday afternoon as funerals for the at least 58 victims of the previous date's violence took place. The U.N. Security Council began its session Tuesday with a moment of silence for the dead, and the U.N.'s special Mideast envoy said there was "no justification for the killing".

There were fears of further bloodshed as Palestinians planned a further protest to mark the "Nakba", or "Catastrophe".

Palestinians claim East Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state. "Jerusalem is a Palestinian territory, and according to worldwide law, Jerusalem should be under global law until both parties agree to divide it into (two) capitals or what", said Jamal Hamed, president of the Association of Palestinian Arab Canadians.

No Israelis were reported killed or injured.

Meanwhile, France, the United Kingdom and Germany - all of whom characterized Trump's decision to move the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem as a mistake - have been decidedly more critical in their responses.

Friedman referred to the embassy's location as "Jerusalem, Israel" drawing wild applause.

Along the Gaza border, crowds built throughout the day in the Palestinian enclave less than 100 km away from Jerusalem and sealed off from Israel by a blockade. The decision fueled unrest across the Middle East and has been condemned by the majority of the worldwide community.

Ardern said the Government had not spoken directly to the US, or US Ambassador, following the deaths.
