In Gaza, women protest among the burning tires and smokeBy Nidal al-Mughrabi GAZA (Reuters) – On the Gaza-Israel border women are an integral part of the tent protests that have transformed a once-deserted restricted zone. “Some tell us we can’t do what men do, some are afraid we will get hurt and others encourage us,” Aya Abeid, 18, told Reuters. Twice she managed to plant a Palestinian flag at the fortified wire fence that separates Gaza from Israel, a place most do not dare approach in demonstrations that have seen more than 40 Palestinians shot dead by Israeli troops.
