Israel 'whitewashed' probe into army killings during Gaza march of return

A report released on Thursday accuses the Israeli military of improperly investigating its own policies and practices during the Great March of Return, when hundreds of people were killed as Palestinians in Gaza rallied along the fence separating the enclave from Israel every Friday for nearly two years.

The protest campaign called for an end to the blockade on Gaza, imposed by Israel and Egypt in 2007, and for Palestinian refugees' right of return to the lands that their families fled or were forced out of during the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948.

The Israeli response - sometimes with live fire - was lethal, leading to the deaths of more than 250 people and tens of thousands of wounds, according to the UN.
