U.N. Human Rights Council to Review Israel’s Massacre in Gaza

HeadlineMay 17, 2018
H2 gaza

In the Gaza Strip, Israeli warplanes launched at least six airstrikes overnight, in what Israel’s military said were attacks on Hamas targets. The bombings came as the United Nations Human Rights Council said it will hold a special session Friday to discuss escalating violence in Gaza. On Monday, Israeli forces shot dead at least 61 unarmed Palestinian protesters taking part in the Great March of Return. More than 2,700 Palestinians were injured. After headlines, we’ll go to Gaza to speak with Dr. Tarek Loubani, a Palestinian emergency room doctor, who is Canadian. He was treating gunshot wound patients in Gaza when he was shot by an Israeli sniper himself earlier this week.
