>> Funeral processions crowded the streets of Gaza on Tuesday. A day after 60 were killed and over 2000 injured when Israeli forces fired upon protests, brought to boiling point by the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem. The dead are being buried on the day Gazans remember as Nakba, or catastrophe.
00:00:22
The same day 70 years ago when thousands were driven from their homes at the time of Israel's creation. Among Monday's fatalities, baby Lyla. Her grandmother says the eight month old died after inhaling tear gas at one of the protest camps. On the Gaza-Israel border, the numbers are smaller for the final day of what's been dubbed the Great March of Return.
00:00:49
It's thought many went to mourning tents after the deadliest day for Gazans in many years.>> These protests are as much about politics as they are about general frustration. People here say they have nothing left to lose, and despite the risks, they keep on returning. They've shown that the level of despair here is so high, people are willing to die.
00:01:11
>> In Gaza's hospitals, they're overwhelmed with wounded in a place where supplies were already running low. Doctors say they have 500 patients and only 20 beds. We meet 13 year old Isaldin. He arrived here but nothing but stones in his pockets. He just found out he'll lose his leg.
00:01:32
Does he regret protesting?>> No.>> No.>> No, he says. His father tells me he has five children, and he'd still encourage them all to go to the border. In another room, we meet Alla, father of four. He's also about to have his leg amputated.>> I don't regret it.
00:01:52
Even though my leg will be amputated, I will be back again at the border.>> Alla is unemployed, like nearly half of those living here, trapped and desperate for change. Now it's not clear if these protests will escalate any further, but few here have much hope for the future.
