PA accuses Israel of carrying out ‘terrible massacre’ in Gaza

The Palestinian Authority government accuses Israel of committing a “terrible massacre” after Israeli fire kills 28 Palestinians in violent protests and clashes along the Gaza Strip border ahead of the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem.

Palestinian government spokesman Yusuf al-Mahmoud demands 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.”
