Palestinians on Tuesday marked the Nakba, or “disaster”, in the memory of more than 700,000 Palestinians who escaped or were expelled in the 1948 war surrounding Israel’s creation. More than 60 Gazans were shot by Israeli snipers,tear gas and gun fires, informed Gaza’s Health Ministry. The Ministry informed that the toll included a baby who died from tear gas inhalation along with eight children under the age of 16. At least 2,400 others were wounded in the bloodiest day in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict since the 2014 Gaza war. Palestinian authorities called a massacre of protesters on the day the United States opened its embassy in contested Jerusalem.
