US Embassy move sparking deadly violence in the Gaza Strip

Three weeks ago, President Trump moved the US Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

As a result:

  • Palestinians are infuriated and have been protesting at the Gaza-Israel border
  • Israeli troops opened fire at the border killing over 60 Palestinians and injuring thousands
  • One of these casualties includes a volunteer Palestinian medic, who was running towards an injured protestor and was shot dead by Israeli troops

Some background:

  • The Israelis believe that they are entitled to the land now known as Israel, which is basically the same land the Palestinians believe that they are entitled to have
  • And, both sides believe that God gave them the land
