In Jerusalem, an embassy opens. In Gaza, at least 58 die on bloodiest day in years | The Independent

A special dispatch that contrasts violent scenes on the Israeli-Gaza border with celebrations marking opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem

It was a day 70 years in the making, one that the US sought to portray as a new dawn, but which in reality brutally exposed how far President Donald Trump is from solving one of the world’s most intractable conflicts.

While Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump led the fanfare for the deeply controversial opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem, just 50 miles away in the Gaza Strip, Israeli troops shot and killed at least 58 Palestinians protesting at a move which they see as denying their basic rights to a shared capital in that holy city.

The term “asymmetrical” hardly does justice to what was easily the bloodiest day since the Gaza war of 2014; live rounds were met with rocks hurled in response – no Israeli injuries were reported as night fell.

The death toll seemed to make a mockery of Donald Trump’s insistence that he is seeking a peaceful solution for Israel and the Palestinians. Amid international condemnation, including Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan labelling the killings “genocide”, and calls for restraint from all sides, the bloodshed appeared to symbolise a belief in Israel’s government, euphoric at the embassy move, that force rather than compromise was the route to ensuring a secure future for the 70-year-old nation.
