Gaza-Israel Border Clashes Erupt as Protests Begin

(From BBC News)

Clashes between Palestinian protesters and Israeli forces have erupted along Gaza’s border with Israel, a week after similar unrest left 16 people dead.

The Israeli military said it had shot three people in the legs, as protesters burned car tyres and threw stones.

The protesters are demanding that refugees be allowed to return to ancestral lands that are now in Israel.

But Israel says the militant group Hamas, which dominates Gaza, is staging the rallies in order to launch attacks.

It has warned that orders given to soldiers about when to open fire have not been changed, despite a storm of international criticism.
