Israeli security forces have killed over 126 Palestinians since protests began March 30.

"What happened today adds to our argument and to the urgency of providing worldwide protection" for Palestinian civilians, he said.

"It is unfortunate that instead of condemning the terrorists of Hamas, some countries are looking to satisfy their domestic political needs by bashing Israel at the United Nations", Danon said.

There have been no Israeli casualties.Protests peaked on May 14 when at least 61 Palestinians were killed in protests to coincide with the controversial opening of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem.

Israel considers Jerusalem its "indivisible" capital, while Palestinians claim the eastern part of the city - occupied by Israel in 1967 and later annexed - as the capital of their future state.

"We need real Arab support and solidarity with our cause", said Saleh, a student of Arabic literature who wore a medical mask against the tear gas. "I don't think that the people who run world soccer can ignore this".

Protester Fadi Saleh said the frequent marches have helped revive sympathies in the Arab world for the Palestinians, but that more could be done. "People and children are dying because we are defending our land", he exclaimed.

MK Yousef Jabareen, the head of the Joint Arab List's worldwide relations committee, who is behind the initiative, said he has yet to make a formal request, but intends to do so in the near future.

Dr. Ashraf al-Qedra, the spokesperson of the Health Ministry in the Gaza Strip, said the soldiers shot at least 92 Palestinians with live fire, and 19 others who were injured by shrapnel from the bullets.

Emmanuel Nahshon, spokesman for Israel's Foreign Ministry, described Gaza protesters on Twitter as "hateful morons" and "Hamas Jugend", the latter a play on "Hitler Youth" in German.

Among the dead Friday was 15-year-old Haitham al-Jamal. Of 618 people wounded, 120 were from live fire, they said.

Quds Day, an annual event that falls on June 8 this year, is observed on the last Friday of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan in Iran along with several Arab countries.

The territory has been controlled by Hamas for more than a decade, during which it has fought three wars against Israel. The Sinai Peninsula was returned to Egypt in 1982, the West Bank and Golan Heights remain under Israeli occupation and the Gaza Strip suffers under a crippling siege.

Not surprisingly the Israel Football Association (IFA) were incandescent, accusing the Palestinians of crossing a "red line" by inciting anger towards the Argentinian players in order to scupper the match. But this is not a peaceful protest.
