Several thousand people gathered Friday at one of the tent camps, east of Gaza City. Israel alleges Hamas is using protests as a cover for attacks.

The marches are expected to peak on May 15, the day after the 70th anniversary of Israel's declaration of independence but marked by the Palestinians as the Nakba Day, or "Day of the Catastrophe".
