The group has led weekly protests near the border with Israel since late March.
Arab League chief Ahmed Abul Gheit condemned the "massacres" of Palestinians, which he said resemble "war crimes".
"The establishment of an independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital is the only way for lasting peace and stability", he said. Trump tweeted earlier Monday.
Palestinians carry away an injured protester who was shot in his leg during clashes with Israeli forces east of Gaza City.
Meanwhile, the United States blocked the adoption of a UN Security Councilstatement that would have called for an independent probe of deadly violence on the Israel-Gaza border, which erupted as the new U.S. embassy in Jerusalem was opened, diplomats said. Two Palestinians were shot dead, the Gaza health ministry said. One of the minors was identified as a girl. Of the wounded, 130 are in serious or critical condition.
In response, Mr Burt said the move "was not supported by the UK", was "not conducive to peace in the region" and its timing was "extremely difficult". The move to Jerusalem upended decades of United States policy toward Jerusalem.
Together with Egypt, it has imposed a strict blockade on Gaza since 2007, when Hamas violently took control of the enclave from the more moderate Palestinian faction Fatah.
Palestinians claim East Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state, and see the USA move as backing Israeli control over the whole of the city.
One day later, the first Palestinian funerals have been held and Gaza's medical facilities are stretched to their limit, having coped with 2,771 injuries.
As well as calling for restraint from Israel, the United Kingdom government said peaceful protests in Gaza were "exploited by extremists".
Monday was the bloodiest days since the 2014 Gaza war - and since the start of the protests - with 61 Palestinians, including a baby who died of tear gas inhalation, killed by Israeli forces.
Despite the Gaza violence and Palestinian outrage over the embassy move from Tel Aviv, Shah insisted there was no reason to believe there would be any damage to the Trump administration's Israeli-Palestinian peace efforts. Groups of young activists repeatedly approached the fence, but were quickly scattered by gunfire and tear gas. Haley noted Hamas' track record of antagonizing Israeli security forces and declared in her address that "no country in this chamber would act with more restraint than Israel has". He said there already had been several "significant attempts" to break through the fence.
Israel has said it is acting in self-defense to defend its borders and communities.
But U.N. human rights officials assailed Israel for its use of firepower against the protesters.
Describing the USA and Israel as "partners in crime", Al-Qaradaghi said: "The entire world, including many Arab leaders, is responsible for the crimes being committed against the Palestinians".
A majority of Gaza's 2 million people are descendants of refugees, and the protests have been billed as the "Great March of Return" to long-lost homes in what is now Israel.
Palestinians hurled stones and incendiary devices while the Israeli military used snipers as black smoke poured from burning tyres.
Israeli troops were deployed along the border again on Tuesday. The White House today also blamed Palestine for the deaths, claiming Hamas had attacked the border. The Palestinians seek the city's eastern half as the capital of a future state.
"I am pleased President Trump has chosen to stand for freedom and democracy by moving the embassy - a move I called for over 20 years ago", Inhofe said in a news release.
The new United States embassy in Jerusalem was opened on Monday.
Netanyhau praised Trump's decisions but Palestinians have said the USA can no longer serve as an honest broker in any peace process. However, they have not said how they will move forward without the Palestinians.
