Tension in Gaza as Palestinians prepare to bury 58 dead

Tahmeed Taha: In Gaza funerals are to be held for 58 people killed when Israeli troops opened fire on Palestinian protesters on Monday, in the deadliest day of violence there since a war in 2014. With the 70th anniversary, the burials coincide of what Palestinians call the Nakba – the mass displacement of Palestinians after the creation of Israel. It was said by Israel’s military that it was preparing for further confrontations on Tuesday. But it was indicated by Palestinian groups that they intended to rein in the protests. As well as those killed, about 2,700 people were injured in Monday’s violence – which they condemned as a massacre, Palestinian officials said. Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli PM, said his military was acting in self-defense against Gaza’s Islamist rulers, Hamas, who he said wanted to destroy Israel.
