At least 55 Palestinian demonstrators have been killed Monday - and hundreds more injured - by Israeli army forces deployed along the Gaza border, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry.

The Palestinian protests will be continued on Tuesday, too as the culmination of the "Nakba" commemoration is near.

Erdogan said that "Israel continues to sow terror in the middle East" and warned: "I can't accept this terrorist behavior".

"We will not allow today to be the day the Muslim world loses Jerusalem", Erdoğan said, condemning the "humanitarian tragedy, this genocide", no matter where it comes from, either Israel or the U.S.

The Turkish president added that a "big rally" would be held in Istanbul on Friday over the violence in Gaza.

In an interview with BBC Arabic on Sunday, Erdogan said that Israel is "sowing fear and pushing" the Middle Eastern "region to war".

Earlier on Monday Turkey recalled ambassadors in Tel Aviv and Washington for consultations, Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag said.

"We are rejecting once again this decision which violates global law and which is against United Nations resolutions", he said.

Their talk revolved around the Monday opening-relocation of the American embassy in Jerusalem and the ongoing violence between the Israelis and Palestinians due to the move, especially on the Gaza-Israeli border.

"We curse the massacre carried out by Israeli security forces, encouraged by this step, on the Palestinians participating in peaceful demonstrations", its statement said. Various injuries received 2.4 thousand protesters.
