Israel sanctions owners of buses used by Palestinian protestors

Israel has said it is sanctioning the owners of Gaza buses which transported Palestinian protestors to border demonstrators, reports the Associated Press.

The military body for Palestinian civilian affairs announced on Facebook that the owners of 14 bus companies and their families would be denied “extra privileges” and ties to Israel would be “cancelled” for ignoring warnings and transporting “violent” protestors.

Israeli forces have killed at least 28 Palestinians and injured over 1500 since protests began at the end of March.
