REUTERS – Palestinians clashed with Israeli forces in the West Bank today (May 15) during protests marking what they call the “Nakba” or “catastrophe” when hundreds of thousands of Palestinians were dispossessed when the state of Israel was created in 1948.

The protests came a day after Israeli gunfire killed more than 50 Palestinians on the penultimate day of a six-week border protest by Gazans demanding the right to return to ancestral homes that now lie on the other side of the Gaza-Israel frontier fence.

Israeli troops shot dead dozens of Palestinians taking part in protests on the Gaza border yesterday (May 14) as the United States opened its embassy to Israel in Jerusalem, a move that has fueled Palestinian anger and drawn criticism from foreign governments as a setback to peace efforts.
