At least six Palestinians died Friday and 500 others sustained injuries during protests along the Gaza border with Israel. Leaders of Hamas, the Gaza-based Islamic militant group, called for six-weeks of sit-in protests to mark the mass displacement of Palestinians during the 1948 war that led to the creation of Israel. The protests quickly turned violent. The Israeli military reported thousands of Palestinians burned tires and threw stones at soldiers positioned at the border.
