Camels and merchants return to Gaza-Israel border, but with risks

Camels and merchants return to Gaza-Israel border, but with risksBy Nidal al-Mughrabi GAZA-ISRAEL BORDER (Reuters) – A narrow track inside Gaza around 300 meters from the Israeli border marks a line beyond which most Gazans do not normally venture, fearing they will be shot by Israeli troops. Tented encampments have sprung up a few hundred meters from the 40-km (25-mile) fence, and hundreds of youths venture even closer to hurl stones at Israeli soldiers and roll burning tyres at the barrier. There is still fear following the deaths of 19 Palestinians from Israeli fire since the protest started.
