Sporadic cross-border fire was a reminder of the situation's unresolved volatility, however.
"If the silence on Israel's tyranny continues, the world will rapidly be dragged into a chaos where banditry prevails", he said.
Protesters set tires ablaze, sending thick plumes of black smoke into the air, and hurled firebombs and stones toward Israeli soldiers across the border. The Palestinians, who seek east Jerusalem as capital of their hoped-for state and vehemently oppose the USA move, recalled their ambassadors to four European countries that had supported it.
Another Hamas official did not confirm the number, but said those participating were demonstrating peacefully.
Later in the day, gunfire from southern Gaza targeted Israeli troops, in response to which a tank targeted two Hamas "military posts" in the same region. "Without question there should be an independent investigation when the lives of so many are lost".
"Fifty of the martyrs were Hamas and 12 from the people".
Hamas leader in Gaza Yehya Sinwar denied that Egypt put pressure on Hamas to end theprotests and said that instead, Haniyeh discussed what Cairo could do to ease hardship in Gaza.
Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, a military spokesman, said 14 of those killed Monday were actively involved in carrying out attacks. Israel has repeatedly claimed that Hamas uses weekly border protests as cover to stage terror attacks. "This was no peaceful protest", he tweeted.

Israel's Intelligence Minister Israel Katz claimed that Egyptian intelligence had "made unequivocally clear" to Haniyeh that Cairo would not help if Hamas continued to stoke the demonstrations.
Deadly clashes have further escalated during the so-called "Great March of Return", which culminated on Monday when the USA embassy officially opened in Jerusalem.
