The protest was organised by... Еще Belgian peace organisations in association with the Palestinian community. Belgium summoned its Israeli envoy to meetings on Tuesday, a day after Israeli troops fired across a border fence killing 59 Palestinians, according to the Gaza health ministry. Israel does not release figures and denies suggestions it uses excessive force. The six-week long 'Great March of Return' rallies culminate tomorrow, the 70th anniversary of Israel's declaration of independence. Palestinians call it the 'Nakba' — meaning 'Catastrophe' in Arabic — referring to the 1948 Palestinian exodus, where an estimated 700,000 Palestinians were expelled to make way for the newly created state of Israel.
