Fresh protests against Israel expected after deadly clashes in Gaza

Fresh protests against Israel are expected in the Palestinian territories today, a day after Israeli troops killed 58 people in the Gaza Strip. Yesterday was the deadliest day since a new wave of protests began at the Gaza border fence seven weeks ago. Tuesday marks the 70th anniversary of what Palestinians call the mass displacement of Palestinians in the war following Israel's creation.

Renewed tension is expected in Gaza, as the dead are buried in the enclave. Yesterday's violence came as the US inaugurated its first embassy in Jerusalem, a controversial move which has incensed Palestinians.
