Ivanka Trump is being slammed for her bubbly demeanor at the opening of the new USA embassy in Jerusalem, which came as dozens of Palestinian protesters were killed in clashes with Israeli military nearby.

A striking image shows just how different two scenes were on Monday in the Middle East.

That jab referred to, of course, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, and the quip was met with cheers and applause from the audience.

Her remark followed an Al Jazeera report that Thailand was among 32 countries that have confirmed attendance at the ceremony to relocate the USA embassy to Jerusalem.

Palestinians gathered yesterday for fresh protests along the Gaza border, a day after Israeli forces killed dozens as the United States embassy officially opened in Jerusalem.

In a rare public appearance Kushner also delivered a speech, which condemned clashes in the region. "You know, we'll see if there's peace, but we'll definitely remember". This has drawn controversy to Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, for seemingly ignoring what critics call a humanitarian crisis unfolding around them, and the New York Daily News took direct aim at Ivanka. The headline reads, "Daddy's Little Ghoul". Reports indicate that Israeli forces used tear gas and possibly sniper fire against the demonstrators.

The White House said that terrorist group Hamas "bears responsibility" for the violence, which left at least 58 dead and more than 2,700 injured.
