These are the Palestinians killed by Israeli live fire on Tuesday, as they protested against the move of the US embassy.
At least 61 Palestinians were killed on Monday in the deadliest day in Gaza since 2014 war, as demonstrations were held on the border of the besieged territory against the de-facto US recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. 

Over 2,400 Palestinians were wounded as Israeli snipers continued to fire into the crowds to suppress the demonstrations. At least 250 children - some as young as eight years old - were shot with live ammunition by Israeli troops. 

One eight-month-old baby girl was reportedly killed after suffocating on tear gas fired by Israeli forces.

Eight-month-old Leila al-Ghandour is believed to be the youngest victim in Israel's mass killings in Gaza. 

Eight children aged under-16 were among the dead on Monday, with more than 1,000 children injured since 'return' protests began in Gaza, just over six weeks ago.
