"We must strive for a future where Israel and Palestine thrive as states in which all are equally respected, and where civil society is able to play its constructive role", she said.

The council met after the bloodiest day for Palestinians since the 2014 Gaza war, while only miles away the United States opened its new embassy in Jerusalem. But Zeid insisted that many of those injured and killed on Monday "were completely unarmed, (and) were shot in the back, in the chest, in the head and limbs with live ammunition", he said, saying there was "little evidence of any (Israeli) attempt to minimise casualties".

At a Security Council meeting Tuesday, the U.N.'s top Mideast envoy said there was no justification for the killings.

"The Egyptians reportedly showed Hamas leaders a video that revealed Hamas members paying off civilians if they agreed to approach the border fence despite Israeli warnings that there would be deadly consequences".
