Twenty people are killed in Gaza. Palestinians are angry. They protest. They throw stones and set trees on fire. This happens close to an Israeli military base.

The Israeli soldiers don’t like this. They attack the Palestinians with tear gas. Israel says that Islamists in Gaza have rockets. These rockets can hit Israel.
