Israel condemned for Gaza killings

Palestinian authorities reported that two more people died under the fire of the Israeli military on the Gaza border with Israel, bringing the total number of fatalities to 62 since yesterday. Many more remain critically injured in hospital. There is mounting international condemnation of Israel’s use of force, with the United Nations calling it an outrageous human rights violation. Yesterday’s protests were the bloodiest day for Palestinians since the war with Israel four years ago.
