JERUSALEM, 14 May. - (ANA)  - 16 Palestinians were killed and hundreds reported wounded by Israeli Gunfire at border fence.

According to a report by AP, 69 Palestinians have been wounded from various causes. The number wounded from live gunfire is undetermined.

The Israel Police is preparing for the U.S. embassy move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem with thousands of policemen deployed through the city. At 4:00 P.M.

Palestinians throughout the West Bank and Jerusalem were urged to turn out en masse to protest the embassy move and take part in Tuesday's 70th anniversary of the Nakba, or “catastrophe,” as Palestinians term Israel’s creation.
