Gaza medics said two Palestinians were shot dead during Tuesday's demonstrations along the 51-km border.

"Of course, this massacre is taking place at the same time when the United States of America illegally and unilaterally and in a provocative way is opening its embassy", said the Palestinian ambassador to the United Nations, Riyad Mansour, in an address to the UN Security Council.

Putin and Erdogan also discussed the Syrian settlement and Russian-Turkish cooperation in the energy sector.

The "March of Return" demonstrations advocate the return of Palestinians to lands lost to Israel during its founding in 1948, and are also meant to draw attention to harsh conditions in Gaza, where the economy has collapsed under an Israeli-Egyptian blockade since Hamas took power in 2007. Though the whole city is now under Israeli control, the Palestinians lay claim to East Jerusalem, including the Old City, as their capital. He said US President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu should be held accountable.

He also offered a justification for the Trump administration's decision to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem and recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

During the war surrounding Israel's creation in 1948, more than 700,000 Palestinians fled or were expelled from their homes.

Tuesday's meeting came amid growing diplomatic fallout from the violence and the US embassy move.

Israel says it is defending its border and accuses Hamas of trying to carry out attacks under the cover of the protests.

The Hamas-run Gaza health ministry said 60 Palestinians were killed and more than 2,700 more injured in Monday's clashes. Deputy Prime Minister Mehmet Şimşek and Finance Minister Naci Ağbal are also taking part in the meeting.

On Tuesday, the Israeli Army released a video that appeared to show protesters detonating several explosions near the border.

In Jerusalem, following the United States lead, Guatemala opened its embassy in the city on Wednesday. "So now it is necessary to hammer out a new approach to the resolution of the Palestinian issue", Demirhan said, citing the creation of a Palestinian state which he warned may turn into "a quite painful and bloody process".

Israel hit a Hamas base in an air raid Thursday, saying gunfire from Gaza had targeted its soldiers and damaged a house.

"Lethal force may only be used as a measure of last, not first, resort, and only when there is an immediate threat to life or serious injury", said Rupert Colville, a spokesman for the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, in a statement.

Israel occupied the West Bank and east Jerusalem in 1967 and later annexed east Jerusalem in a move never recognised by the worldwide community.

Palestinian officials say the vast majority of the casualties have been unarmed protesters.

Israel and militants in Gaza have fought three wars since 2008. They said the Palestinians would not accept medicine "from the murderers of our people". Palestinians seek East Jerusalem as the capital of a state they want to establish in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip.

Hamas's leader in the Gaza Strip, Yahya Sinwar, told Al-Jazeera on Wednesday that the Egyptians "support the right of our people to struggle and the right of return, and stressed their keenness not to allow these marches to degenerate into an armed military confrontation".
