PALESTINIAN BABY KILLED BY TEAR GAS

Palestinians have begun funerals for protesters killed by the Israeli Defence Force, as the death toll hits 60 following the death of an eight-month-old baby by tear gas.

The ABC reports that, as people in Gaza both commemorate Nakba Day and begin to bury their dead, Israeli forces have once again taken up positions for a final day of protests. Updates continue to emerge following Israel’s actions, including the US blocking a possible UN investigation into the use of live ammunition against protesters; condemnation from other countries such as the UK, France and Turkey; and IDF since claiming that they killed 24 “terrorists”. Israeli citizens are protesting against Israel’s lethal use of force outside Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu‘s residence.
