Tension soars in Gaza as Palestinians Begin to Bury 58 Dead

Gaza, May 15 (ONA) — Funerals are being held in Gaza after the deadliest day of violence there since a war in 2014. Yesterday, 58 people were killed when Israeli troops opened fire during Palestinian protests. Today is the 70th anniversary of what Palestinians call the Nakba – a mass displacement after Israel’s creation. Monday’s violence came as the US inaugurated its first embassy in Jerusalem, a controversial move that broke with decades of US policy and incensed Palestinians.
