On Monday, May 14, as Ivanka Trump led a festive inauguration of a new American embassy in Jerusalem, 100 km (about 60 miles) away, Gaza residents escalated their protests demanding that Palestinian refugees be allowed to return to return to what is now Israel. Israeli soldiers at the Gaza border killed at least 62 Palestinians, and injured hundreds, according to the latest numbers provided by the Palestinian National Authority and Ministry of Health last night (May 15).

Of the 59 victims identified so far, the majority are under 30 years old, and 10 are younger than 18. One is eight months old. At least three are as yet unidentified.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who spoke at the embassy, didn’t address the violence in Gaza. He opened his speech by saying: “What a glorious day. Remember this moment. This is history.”

As the Islamic holy month of Ramadan begins today in Gaza, families of the victims are starting to bury the dead. These are their names, released by the Ministry of Health, as reported by Middle East Eye.

According to the Palestinian National Authority there are 75 wounded in serious condition, and 54 in critical condition. Given the shortage of medicine and beds, and the general lack of medical infrastructure in Gaza, the number of fatalities is expected to go up in the coming days.

Update: The Associated Press reports that anonymous medical sources in Gaza say Laila Al-Ghandoor, the infant who died on Monday, had congenital heart defects and may have died from complications of her health issues, and not as a consequence of inhaling Israeli tear gas.
