AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): Fiery protests rocking the Israeli border in Gaza. At least 26 Palestinians are dead.
STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): These violent demonstrations raging on as we're just about half an hour away from the U.S. embassy opening in Jerusalem.
BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): Yeah, I mean, this is something that we can't say that's that surprising, but anytime you have loss of life on something like this, you understand because precautions were taken, but if someone is determined to create unrest with these great numbers, what are you supposed to do if you're security, if you're security on the other side?
DOOCY: Well, the Palestinians were warned they could get hurt if they approached the fence, and they did, and Israeli snipers have apparently killed a number of Palestinians. We do know right now at least 26 are dead and 700 are injured. They are squarely against the fact that just about 30 minutes from right now the United States of America is going to move our embassy officially from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. It has been in Tel Aviv for decades.
We are witnessing an abhorrent violation of international law & human rights in #Gaza. 38 confirmed dead, including 6 children, with close to 2000 people injured. Many are reporting injuries to the head and chest. Over 500 injured with live ammunition. This must end immediately.
