    Palestinian protesters in Gaza who have been shot by Israeli soldiers have suffered what the medical charity Doctors Without Borders calls “devastating injuries of unusual severity”.

    The medical help group says it has treated more patients this month than in the whole of 2014 when Israel launched its last war in Gaza.
