  • Israeli forces shot 14-year-old Mohammad Ayoub in the head killing him

The ministry did not say how Layla Al Ghandour was exposed to the tear gas.

As Times of Israel reported: "But more dramatically, during the latest border protests on Friday, the COGAT officer said Hamas members directed rioters to destroy and set fire to key parts of the Kerem Shalom Crossing, the main, often sole, passage for commercial goods and humanitarian aid into and out of the Gaza Strip".

At the back of the room, 11-year-old Ammar sobs uncontrollably as he looks at the corpse. Meanwhile, her family told the media her uncle had taken her towards the protest area in search of her mother.

Israeli troops used tear gas and live fire against protesters, as they approached the border fence, wounding nearly 3,000 and sparking condemnation from the United Nations (UN).

"So I took her with me on the bus". Monday was one of the deadliest days we have seen since the 2014 war, with six children killed and more than 220 children hurt, including more than 150 who were shot by live ammunition, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza.

He eventually found his mother close to the border and handed Leila over to her. They stayed only a few minutes, Heyam insisted, before tear gas rained down on them.

'I could barely breathe, ' Heyam said. "We got away from the gas and gave Leila to my sister and went looking for two other children so we could leave. I thought she was sleeping". They often can not afford the medicines or medical bills for follow up care and extremely anxious about their children's futures - which they say were already being steadily eroded by more than 10 years of Israeli blockade, falling donor interest.

Monday's bloodshed came as the USA opened its new embassy in Jerusalem, in effect recognising Israel's claim over the ancient city as its capital.

As thousands farewelled the dead, Israel defended its actions and said it was acting in self-defence against Hamas. The PM said the violence was "destructive to peace efforts".

The US has been the lone voice of support for Israel.

He also slammed U.S. President Donald Trump on the move to relocate his country's embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, calling it a "big mistake".

Nickolay Mladenov, the special United Nations envoy to the region, told the Security Council on Tuesday that hospitals in Gaza were "reporting an unfolding crisis of essential medical supplies, drugs and equipment needed to treat the injured".
