GAZA VIOLENCE: 55 PALESTINIANS KILLED. Palestinians take cover from Israeli fire and tear gas during protests against the US embassy move to Jerusalem on May 14, 2018. 55 Palestinians killed in protests along the Gaza border on Monday in a wave of gunfire condemned as a "massacre" that overshadowed the inauguration of the new US embassy in Jerusalem. The move to recognize the contested city as Israel's capital fulfilled US President Donald Trump's campaign pledge that energized Israeli far-right but enraged the Palestinians who said his decision had destroyed any hope of peace.
