Earlier, funerals began for some of those killed, coinciding with the day Palestinians call the Nakba, or "catastrophe", which commemorates when more than 700,000 of them fled or were expelled from their homes in the 1948-49 war that followed the creation of the State of Israel.

The White House instead reiterated the Trump administration's refrain, in response to weeks of violence on the Israel-Gaza border, that Israel had a right to defend itself.

A handful of US lawmakers nonetheless condemned the violence, including Sen. "Every casualty on the border is a victim of Hamas' war crimes, every death is a result of Hamas' terror activity, and these casualties are exclusively Hamas' responsibility", Danon said in a statement. Many still live under hard conditions in refugee camps in neighboring Arab states, barred from returning to Israel.

"Hamas maps and social media show the fastest routes to reach Israeli communities in case demonstrators make it through the security fence", Haley said.
