"The US administration is as responsible as the Israeli government for this massacre," Bekir Bozdag wrote on Twitter, saying the violence was sparked by "unjust and unlawful decisions" in reference to Washington moving its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Violent clashes erupted along Gaza's border hours ahead of the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem, which was to be attended by a White House delegation and Israeli officials.
"The US administration moving its embassy to Jerusalem destroyed the chances for peace and ignited a fire that will cause more human losses and injuries as well as destruction and catastrophe in the region," said Bozdag, who is also government spokesman.
"From now, nothing will be the same in the causes of Palestine and Jerusalem," he added.
