The videos below are from the Gaza region where tensions remain high after continuous border clashes take place between Palestinians and Israelis.

In the first video, Palestinians participate in prayer near the border fence with Israel as mass demonstrations at the fence continue. More than a dozen deaths have been reported, some people were critically injured and wounded amid the protests.

Gaza’s Hamas rulers have vowed that the marches will continue until the decade-old Israeli blockade of the territory is lifted.

On May 15 the protests will culminate to mark the ‘nakba’, or catastrophe, to commemorate the anniversary of their mass uprooting during the 1948 war over Israel’s creation.
