Israeli troops fired live rounds and tear gas as thousands of Palestinians protested near the Gaza border fence on Friday, with some demonstrators burning tires, throwing stones and flying blazing kites.
More than 115 Palestinians have been killed and almost 3,700 wounded during near-weekly protests along the Israeli border, according to Palestinian health officials. It said at one location at least two Palestinian militants fired guns at its forces and others had thrown grenades.
"I think what happened yesterday is a red card from everybody to the Israelis to (get them to) understand that they (only) have a right to organise, or play football within their internationally recognised borders", he said in English, pointing out the final status of Jerusalem is supposed to be the subject of negotiations between the parties.
The Palestinians killed on Friday were two adult men and a 15-year-old boy, medics said.
The United States shifted its Israeli embassy to Jerusalem in May on the 70th anniversary of the creation of Israel, in a move met with condemnation from the Palestinians and many of Washington's worldwide allies.
Palestinians say the protests are a popular outpouring of rage against Israel by people demanding the right to return to homes their families fled or were driven from on Israel's founding 70 years ago.

The UN General Assembly will convene for an emergency session on Wednesday regarding Gaza, where a version of a resolution vetoed last week by the USA in the Security Council condemning Israel will receive a wider vote.
The move follows the USA veto of a Kuwait-sponsored resolution on June 1 asking Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to report on ways to protect Palestinian civilians including an "international protection mechanism".
Some Palestinians launched kites rigged with incendiary devices, which were intercepted by small military drones.
Although the stadium that was slated to host the match is in west Jerusalem, Rajoub had complained that it is situated in a neighbourhood built on the site of a former Palestinian village destroyed during the war surrounding Israel's creation in 1948.
"Washington's gross insult and hostile act against the Palestinian people, symbolized in the split-screen reality of the embassy inauguration in Jerusalem while there was an ongoing massacre in Gaza, is not going to prevent us from talking about peace".
The march also marked the annual "Jerusalem Day", instituted by Iran to protest Israeli rule of the holy city.
Many Iranians were adamant they were not anti-Israel but only wanted to support the Palestinians. Israel and Hamas have fought three cross-border wars since 2008. Tel Aviv denies any excessive use of force, saying that the riots are violent and pose a threat to the security of Israel, and it is acting in self-defense. Statehood talks have been frozen since 2014.
