A Palestinian relative of Hamdan Abu Amsha, who was killed a day earlier by Israeli forces when clashes erupted as tens of thousands as Gazans marched near the Israeli border with the enclave to mark Land Day, cry during his funeral in Beit Hanun in the northern of Gaza Strip on March 31, 2018.
Sixteen Palestinians were killed and hundreds more wounded in the conflict's worst single day of violence since the 2014 Gaza war. Israel's military targeted three Hamas sites in the Gaza Strip with tank fire and an air strike after what it said was an attempted shooting attack against soldiers along the border that caused no injuries. Protesters, including women and children, gathered at multiple sites throughout the blockaded territory, which is flanked by Israel along its eastern and northern borders.
