Israeli police break up protest blocking aid to Gaza: Report

Israeli police have broken up a protest by demonstrators trying to block humanitarian aid from entering Gaza. At least 18 protesters have been detained at the Karem Abu Salem Crossing (called Kerem Shalom in Israel), on Israel's border with Gaza. They've been demanding the release of captives. Previous protests in the same place have resulted in trucks filled with aid supplies being turned back. The Israeli newspaper Haaretz is reporting the government of Benjamin Netanyahu is pushing ahead with a major illegal settlement in the occupied West Bank. Haaretz says 650 homes will be built just a few metres away from Palestinian houses, south of occupied East Jerusalem. Far-right Israeli activists are reportedly involved in the development. Israel has continued to build on Palestinian land – even though the settlements are illegal under international law. Al Jazeera’s Hamdah Salhut has the latest from occupied East Jerusalem.
