(Worthy News) - Two Palestinians were shot dead as over 4,000 people in the West Bank and Gaza took part in protests Tuesday to mark the establishment of Israel, one day after Israeli forces along the Gaza border killed 60 Palestinians.
Palestinian media said hundreds were participating across the West Bank and that 26 people were injured either by live ammunition or rubber-coated bullets fired by Israeli troops.
The protests were organized to mark "Nakba" (Arabic for 'catastrophe'), which commemorates the more than 700,000 Palestinians who fled or were expelled in the 1948 war that followed Israel's creation. [ Source:i24 (Read More...) ]
