The death toll was highest in a single day for Palestinians since 2014, and according to the health ministry over 2,700 people were left injured either by live gunfire, tear gas or other means.

"The Arab summit last month [in Saudi Arabia] declared its rejection, in accordance with worldwide law, of any move that attempts to legitimise any decision that changes the status of Jerusalem", Shoukry said.

Altogether Israeli forces have killed some 116 Palestinians since protests along Gaza's border with Israel began six weeks ago.

Arab countries and territories have yet to take the joint action of recalling their envoys to the United States in response to the USA transferring its Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to the contested city of Jerusalem.

Al-Quds and al-Hayat al-Jadida reported that Arab foreign ministers have tasked the Arab League's General Secretariat with preparing a plan to confront the decision of any country to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Palestinian security sources told Agence France-Presse the target was a Hamas base.

Lieberman halted Israel's cooperation with the council during his stint as foreign minister in 2012.
