Gaza protests cancelled for first time after Israeli air strikes

Weekly protests along the Gaza-Israel border were called off on Friday after Israeli jets pounded the enclave overnight, hours after rockets were launched at Tel Aviv.

"In keeping with the public interest, the commission has decided to exceptionally postpone its activities scheduled for this day," the body which organises the protests said in a statement.

Protests will resume in the coming weeks, with particular preparation for the one-year anniversary of their beginning on 30 March, it said.

An official from the organising committee, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the protests were delayed "to protect our people due to the escalation and the Israeli aggression".
