Tensions as Palestinians bury 58 killed by Israeli troops in Monday clashes

Funerals are being held in Gaza, after the deadliest day of violence there between Palestinians and Israeli troops since a war in 2014.

On Monday, 58 people were killed when Israeli troops opened fire during Palestinian protests.

Tuesday is the 70th anniversary of what Palestinians call the Nakba – a mass displacement, after Israel’s creation.

Israel’s military said it was preparing for further confrontations on Tuesday, but Palestinian groups indicated they intended to remain in the protests.

Monday’s violence came as the U.S inaugurated its first embassy in Jerusalem, a controversial move that broke with decades of U.S policy and incensed Palestinians.
