Protesters, police clash at Gaza crossing
by UPI

GAZA - Palestinian protesters and Egyptian forces clashed Tuesday at Rafah Crossing after protesters demanded the crossing be opened to ease the Gaza siege.

Palestinians reported 50 women were injured in the incident with security forces, including 15 suffering gunshot wounds, Ynetnews reported. Israel initiated the blockade in response to rocket attacks.

The security forces used dogs and water hoses to push back protesters, the Israeli news service reported. Several Palestinians were arrested.

Meanwhile, Arab members of the Knesset protested Israel's blockade of supplies to Gaza.
