GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — In the past two weeks, as Egyptian-sponsored talks between Israel and Hamas faltered and the security situation remained tense, the organizers of the Great Return March called for increased activities at the Gaza-Israel border.

After Hamas postponed talks with Israel on Aug. 26, the High Committee of the Great Return March and Breaking the Siege called for the resumption of daily demonstrations at the Gaza border with Israel. The protests, previously held daily between March 30, when they began, and the end of May, had lost momentum in the past three months, only taking place on Fridays.
