Hamas cancels school on Saturday so Gaza kids can join border protests

The Hamas-run education ministry in the Gaza Strip cancels school on Saturday to allow school children to participate in the mass border protests that are expected over the weekend.

The announcement comes as Egyptian mediators are meeting with senior Hamas officials in a last-ditch effort to reach a ceasefire deal with Israel before Saturday, when thousands of Palestinians are expected to mark the one-year anniversary of the weekly border rallies.
