Gaza violence: Fresh protests expected after deadly clashes

- in News, World News

Fresh protests against Israel are expected in the Palestinian territories on Tuesday, a day after Israeli troops killed 58 people in the Gaza Strip.

Monday was the deadliest day since a new wave of protests began at the Gaza border fence seven weeks ago.

Tuesday marks the 70th anniversary of what Palestinians call the Nakba – the mass displacement of Palestinians in the war following Israel’s creation.

Renewed tension is expected in Gaza, as the dead are buried in the enclave.

Monday’s violence came as the US inaugurated its first embassy in Jerusalem, a controversial move which has incensed Palestinians.

They claim East Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state and see the US move as backing Israeli control over the whole of the city – which Israel regards as its indivisible capital.
