Thousands of Palestinians have been gathering at that fence every Friday after noon prayers, demanding the right to return to the land from which their families were expelled, during Israel’s founding in 1948.
Since the protests began, at least 250 people have been killed and thousands more wounded by Israeli fire.
The United Nations says more than 120 people have had one or both legs amputated, while UN investigators say Israel has committed war crimes against protesters.
All this, at a time of heightened tension in the region. So what’s the way forward?
