Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba has condemned Monday's carnage in the Gaza Strip as "an act of provocation and a violation of global law".

Simon Coveney summoned the country's Ambassador to Iveagh House earlier where he called for restraint in the days and hours ahead.

The statement added, 'Ireland is also very disturbed by the injuries suffered by health workers as reported by the WHO: 211 recorded attacks against health workers in Gaza attending the large numbers of injured during the mass demonstrations at the border fence.

Protests took place across South African cities on Tuesday in support of Palestine, this after Israeli forces opened fire on Palestinian protesters on the Israel-Gaza border on Monday, leaving at least 60 dead and more than 2,400 wounded.

The Republic of Ireland's minister for foreign affairs has met the Israeli ambassador after summoning him to express "outrage" at the deaths and injuries in Gaza.

The UN Security Council was scheduled to hold an emergency meeting on the situation in Gaza later in the day.

"The killing of children, women and defenseless people of Palestine and the occupation of Palestinian lands has become the main strategy of the Zionists over the 70 years of occupation", said Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi on the ministry's website.

But the United Nations human rights office was heavily critical of Israel's use of force.

Irish people on social media called Coveney out for taking a different tack in his treatment of the Russian diplomat, suggesting the Irish government is happy to follow Britain's orders but will fail to act on "crimes against humanity".

"My request to him was to ask if there was the possibility of considering putting the inauguration of the USA embassy in Jerusalem on hold". We need to show that we support the Palestinian people in their fight against the Israeli government.

Fresh protests were also expected on Tuesday as Palestinians continue to mark the Nakba commemorating the more than 700,000 Palestinians who fled or were expelled in the 1948 war surrounding Israel's creation.

He accused countries in the region - an apparent reference to Iran's rival Saudi Arabia - of a "treacherous compromise and undignified passivity" for failing to strongly condemn Israeli actions. This step by the Trump administration was controversial because it broke with decades of USA policy and infuriated Palestinians.
