GAZA – Worried families crowded the halls and spilled out of rooms in Gaza’s hospitals on Tuesday, as patients wounded at a border protest awaited treatment for injuries suffered on Monday, the deadliest day for Palestinians in years.

In addition to 60 Palestinians killed by Israeli troops on Monday – when the United States opened its Embassy in Jerusalem – more than 1,700 received wounds needing hospital treatment, Gaza medics said.

At Gaza City’s Shifa hospital, the largest of the Gaza Strip’s 13 medical facilities, officials ordered field tents to be put up in the hospital courtyard last week, fearing a likely surge in casualties from the protests around the time of the embassy opening.
