A mass attempt by Palestinians to cross the border fence separating Israel from the Gaza Strip on Monday quickly turned violent, as Israeli soldiers responded with rifle fire. Monday quickly became the bloodiest single day since a campaign of demonstrations began seven weeks ago, to protest Israel’s economic blockade of the Gaza Strip.
"At Least 41 Palestinians Killed in Protests as U.S. Opens Jerusalem Embassy" is from the May 14, 2018 World section of The New York Times. It was written by David M. Halbfinger, Isabel Kershner and Declan Walsh and narrated by Kristi Burns.
