10 killed as Palestinians protest at Gaza border

Ten Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces during fresh protests on Gaza’s border with Israel.

The Israeli military said troops had opened fire when people attempted to breach the fence on the frontier.

The protesters are demanding that refugees be allowed to return to ancestral lands that are now in Israel.

But Israel says the militant group Hamas, which dominates Gaza, is staging the rallies in order to launch attacks.

UN Secretary General António Guterres called on all parties to avoid confrontation and exercise maximum restraint after 16 people were killed and hundreds of others injured during similar unrest a week ago.
