Palestinian government accuses Israel of ‘terrible massacre’ in Gaza

RAMALLAH (PALESTINIAN TERRITORIES)

The Palestinian Authority government accused Israel of committing a “terrible massacre” after Israeli fire killed at least 43 Palestinians in protests and clashes along the Gaza Strip border ahead of the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem.

Palestinian government spokesman Yusuf al-Mahmoud demanded in a statement “an immediate international intervention to stop the terrible massacre in Gaza committed by the forces of the Israeli occupation against our heroic people.”

Israel says it is only firing when necessary to stop attacks, damage to the fence and infiltration attempts.

The PA government is based in Ramallah in the occupied West Bank.
