Ivanka Trump has landed in Israel for the inauguration of the US Jerusalem embassy on Monday, as protesters in Gaza prepare for a day of rallies along the frontier that are expected to be met with gunfire.

Tens of thousands of Palestinians are expected to gather along the border between the Gaza Strip and Israel on Monday to protest the embassy opening.

Trump's secretary of state at the time, Rex Tillerson, predicted it would take years to relocate the flagship US mission to the holy city. He promised to move the American Embassy to Israel and he is doing so.

The heritage center is located in the heart of Jerusalem's Nahalat Shiva neighborhood and works to educate visitors about the courageous non-Jews who assisted the Jewish people during the British Mandate in Palestine, the Holocaust, and the State of Israel's early days as a new nation.

Israel has portrayed the movement as a "terrorist" ploy by Hamas and as a security threat to its civilians, pointing out attempts to damage and breach the fence.

Instead, the transfer of power - which will turn part of a consulate building in Jerusalem into the embassy and the Tel Aviv embassy into a consulate - will occur on Monday, months after the announcement.

Israel says it has a right to defend its border and has accused Hamas of using the protests as a cover for attacking it.

With the prolonged absence of Republican Senator John McCain due to illness, proponents believe they will win on a 50-49 vote. With the support of all Democrats, two independents and one Republican ( Susan Collins of Maine), they might succeed.

"I think we're all very happy and excited to be participating in such a historic event", Mr Friedman said. "It's a recognition of reality", he told ABC's "This Week".

"I think we're gonna make progress", Friedman said in an interview Fox News host Jeanine Pirro, only one day ahead of the widely-anticipated United States embassy relocation from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

The Israeli army said on Sunday that it held Hamas accountable for anything in the Gaza Strip "and its consequences". Since late March, 42 Palestinians have been killed in weekly clashes with Israel along the Gaza border.

Moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem has enjoyed bi-partisan support in Congress, as expressed in the 1995 bill requiring its relocation, though until now presidents used a waiver every six months allowing them to put off the move on security grounds.

A high-ranking delegation of Gaza's Hamas rulers headed to Egypt on Sunday, amid diplomatic efforts aimed at containing the mass rally.

A delegation from the White House will be on hand: Mr. Trump's daughter and adviser Ivanka Trump; her husband and White House adviser Jared Kushner, who previously worked on behalf of the administration to improve Israeli-Palestinian ties; Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin; U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman and White House aide Jason Greenblatt.

Israel is marking the 51st anniversary of its capture of east Jerusalem in the 1967 Middle East war.
