Palestinians clashed with Israeli soldiers on Tuesday in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. The violence broke out after Israeli forces killed 60 Palestinians near the Gaza-Israel border during demonstrations against the opening of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem. Israeli forces shot dead two more Palestinians on Tuesday. For the past six weeks, Palestinians have been holding Gaza border demonstrations. They demanded access to family land or homes lost to Israel when it was founded in the 1948 Middle East war.
