The clashes along the border between Israel and the Gaza strip which led to the death of more than 50 Palestinians today are turning into an international diplomatic crisis.

What's next: Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu had a conference call with Israeli security chiefs to consult about today's event and to prepare for tomorrow's demonstrations in Gaza. They are expected to be even larger, as May 15th is Nakba Day, which commemorates the displacement of Palestinians during Israel's founding.
