At least 58 Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces and more than 2,700 others were wounded Monday after thousands of protesters converged on the razor-wire fence between the Gaza Strip and Israel as the U.S. Embassy opened in Jerusalem.

The Israeli Defense Forces opened fire on protesters approaching the barrier and accused the militant Palestinian group Hamas of “leading a terrorist operation under the cover of masses of people.” The military said “firebombs and explosive devices,” as well as rocks, were being thrown toward the barrier.

The Israeli military said the demonstration involved 40,000 people “taking part in violent riots” at 13 locations along the boundary. Israel built the 40-mile fence along Gaza’s land border for security reasons in 1994.
