Thousands of Palestinians are to protest Friday near the border between Israel and Gaza, a week after 19 people were killed by Israeli troops in the bloodiest day since the 2014 war.Tens of thousands of Palestinians gathered near the border last Friday at five main sites across the Gaza Strip for the start of what was dubbed the Great March of Return.It accuses Hamas, the Islamist movement that runs Gaza and with whom it has fought three wars since 2008, of using the protests as cover to carry out violence.This is supported by the United Nations in a resolution but has never been implemented, while around five million Palestinian refugees and their descendants live in the occupied West Bank, Gaza and countries surrounding Israel.Israel has accused Hamas of being behind the protests.Hamas leaders appeared at the first protest on March 30 .Will Israel change tactics?
