Gaza: Israeli troops fired tear gas and live bullets at Palestinians taking part in weekly protests at the Gaza Strip border with Israel on Friday, injuring at least 100 people, medics said.

Violent riots continued on the Gaza border on Friday, with Israel saying terrorists attacked its forces with guns and grenades.

Local media reported that tens of thousands of Palestinian demonstrators joined the protests at five different spots in eastern Gaza.

The 21-year-old medic, who was dressed in white uniform, was shot in the chest by an IOF sniper during protests on the Gaza border on 1 June as she attended wounded protesters. Of those wounded, 92 were hit by live fire while the rest suffered from tear gas inhalation, the news agency said.

The United States shifted its Israeli embassy to Jerusalem in May on the 70th anniversary of the creation of Israel, in a move met with condemnation from the Palestinians and many of Washington's global allies.

The measure is being pushed by Arab powers, according to wire services, and will accuse the Jewish state of mishandling a recent spout of protests along its border and calling for protection for the Palestinian people. Israel claimed Hamas had intentionally provoked the violence, a charge Hamas denied.

Palestinian UN Ambassador Riad Mansur said that Kuwait's resolution draft was "completely balanced" and stated that his draft will be nearly entirely identical.

Mansour said the US veto triggered the request and that Friday's violence "adds to our argument and to the urgency of providing worldwide protection" to Palestinian civilians.

Organisers linked Friday's protests to annual "Jerusalem Day" events in Iran, which like Gaza's dominant Hamas Islamists preaches Israel's destruction and was incensed by the USA recognition in December of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital.

Although the stadium that was slated to host the match is in west Jerusalem, Rajoub had complained that it is situated in a neighbourhood built on the site of a former Palestinian village destroyed during the war surrounding Israel's creation in 1948.

Around 2 million people live in Gaza, majority the stateless descendants of refugees from what is now Israel.

Tensions were further heightened last month after the US moved its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in a step seen by both Israel and the Palestinians as siding with Israel on the most sensitive issue in the conflict.

The resolution expected to be put to a vote also demands that Israel refrain from the use of excessive force and "deplores the firing of rockets from the Gaza Strip against Israeli civilian areas". Statehood talks have been frozen since 2014.
