In Jerusalem, following the United States lead, Guatemala opened its embassy in the city on Wednesday.
President of Guatemala Jimmy Morales (L) and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (R) give a joint press conference after signing bilateral agreements at the Prime Minister's Office in Jerusalem on November 29, 2016.
The US and Guatemalan moves break with decades of global consensus.
The sentiment was echoed by government Senator James Paterson, who told The AJN, "The new US Embassy in Israel's rightful capital, Jerusalem, has opened successfully without the sky falling in". In December The US announced to transfer its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. To locate an embassy there now is to take sides, increase tensions, and lessen the chance for lasting peace in the region.
Mr Erdogan said the USA decision to move its embassy was not only a violation of United Nations resolutions and global law, but also a step away from the country's role as a mediator in the Middle East peace process.
Angered by the US Embassy move and the Gaza bloodshed, Turkey expelled Israel's ambassador and consul to Istanbul, Ankara said on Wednesday.
Countries have summoned and recalled ambassadors, the United Nations has issued condemnations and some have called for an investigation of Israel's actions.
"For the displaced Palestinians of occupied Gaza, over 41 of whom had already been killed and 1,800 injured in Israeli forces" firing since March 30 while staging the "Great March of Return" on Fridays near the sealed, "racist", border fence, Monday became one of the blackest days of the Palestinian resistance.
"You must tell Hamas that violence is not the answer", he said.
The Israeli forces killed almost 60 Palestinians in the clashes along the border this Monday.
"It's time for the heads of Hamas to pay a personal price for organising these terror attacks", Erdan said in an interview with Israel's Yedioth Ahronoth.
There have been numerous calls for an independent investigation into the deaths, with Britain, Germany and Switzerland among those supporting such action.
"We have watched the demonstrations over the past six weeks".
Evangelicals want to see Jews rebuild their temple in Jerusalem, which according to their beliefs would facilitate the second coming of Jesus.
"We started to line up altogether and then walk forward steps together".
Senior Palestinian official Saeb Erekat made reference to those allegations in a scathing attack on Wednesday.
Senior Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat said: "The Guatemalan government has chosen to stand on the wrong side of history, to side with violations of global law and human rights, and to take a hostile step against the Palestinian people and the Arab world".
"We are not surprised that a president that has objected to United Nations investigations into corruption and abuses of power has chose to further violate global resolutions". The Trump administration has said the embassy move does not aim to prejudge Jerusalem's final borders.
Israeli and Palestinian leaders agreed to tackle the issue of refugees in the end stages of negotiations - but even peace talks themselves remain a long way off.
Palestinian President Mahmud Abbas on Tuesday withdrew his top envoy to Washington.
