Clashes Between Palestinians and Israeli Forces

Israeli forces deployed water cannons and tear gas on Palestinian protesters in Nablus in the Shomron on Tuesday, as demonstrations commemorating 'Nakba Day' continued.

Palestinians continue to protest after yesterday's opening ceremony of the new US embassy in Jerusalem, during which more than 60 Palestinians were killed.

Nakba, means 'Catastrophe' in Arabic and refers to the 1948 Palestinian exodus, where an estimated 700,000 Palestinians fled after 5 Arab countries waged war on the tiny new Jewish state.
