As anniversary looms, Gaza protests bring bloodshed but scarce gains

As anniversary looms, Gaza protests bring bloodshed but scarce gainsPalestinians in Gaza will on Saturday mark a year since mass protests and deadly clashes began along the Israeli border, with a demonstration expected to draw thousands and bring tensions to boiling point. The anniversary falls only days after another severe flare-up between Hamas and Israel, with a rocket attack from the Gaza Strip that sparked retaliatory air strikes. Israel also holds elections on April 9 and is seeking to avoid a major escalation before then.
