The Trump administration says it has almost completed a new Israeli-Palestinian peace plan but is undecided on how and when to roll it out.
More than 2,200 Palestinians were also injured by gunfire or tear gas. "Rather, the violence comes from those who reject the existence of the state of Israel in any location".
Haley also said the council should be more focused on the destabilizing behavior of Iran, which launched rockets from Syria at Israel last week.
Houck noted that CBS Evening News proclaimed Monday "that the Palestinians were "dancing with death" and put their hardships squarely on Israel". Many shouted, "Death to Israel" and brought knives and fence-cutting tools to breach the border.
The deaths came as tens of thousands of Palestinians demonstrated along the Gaza border to underscore demands of the refugees to be able to return to their former homes inside Israel and their rejection of the opening of the USA embassy in Jerusalem.
Kuwait's envoy, who requested the meeting, said that Israel was violating global law and that the council needs to offer protection unarmed Palestinians. No Israeli casualties have yet been reported.
What Does it Have To Do With The US Embassy? The Palestinian ambassador Riyad Mansour accuses the US of helping Israel act as if it's above the law. The 57-member Organization of Islamic Cooperation, meanwhile, called a May 18 meeting in Istanbul to discuss the Israeli-Palestinian confrontations in Gaza.
The Israeli claim is also disputed, with most countries agreeing it should have an worldwide status administered by the UN. Many came to demonstrate peacefully, but some protesters appeared to be more aggressive than in previous weeks.

Saudi Arabia, a leading Middle East ally that broke rank with much of the global community to join Israel in welcoming Trump's decision to withdraw the us from landmark nuclear accord with Iran last week, also "rejected" the move, according to the official Saudi Press Agency.
As the violence raged on, Hamas has escalated its campaign against Israel, calling on the Palestinian Authority that controls the West Bank to cancel the 1990s Oslo agreements and for Palestinians to stage a third intifada or "uprising".
"This cycle of violence in Gaza needs to end", said Nickolay Mladenov, the United Nations special coordinator for the Middle East peace process.
"They have been living for 12 years in a siege with high unemployment, poverty and low wages".
At the ceremony of the opening of the embassy, Trump son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner backed Israel's handling of the Gaza demonstrations and Washington thwarted the issuing of a security council statement on Gaza Sunday night.
It pointed to an incident Monday in which Israeli troops fended off an attempted incursion into Israeli territory by a cell of eight armed Hamas operatives in the northern Gaza Strip.
Most Western nations refused to recognise the result as they deem the group a terrorist organisation. It was a break with the U.N.'s decade-long stance that Jerusalem's final status must be decided in direct negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians, who seek eastern Jerusalem as a future capital of their own.
He added: "Our people went out today to respond to this new Zionist-American aggression, and to draw by their blood the map of their return".
The Hamas-run Gaza health ministry said that two Palestinians had been killed and over 160 were injured to varying degrees.
