Protestors clash over middle east crisis

Police fired tear gas at protestors as two groups of demonstrators clashed Sunday. 

Pro-Isreal and pro-Palestine demonstrations got involved in an altercation that resulted in a damaged vehicle of one of the protestors, according to CTV News. 

It was one of several demonstrations in Canada around the ongoing crisis, which recorded its deadliest day on Sunday.

Israel bombed a house in Gaza belonging to a leader of Hamas, which fired 100 rockets towards Israel. 

At least 42 Palestinians were killed, including eight children. At least 50 were injured.

The death toll in Gaza now stands at 192 since the bombing began more than a week ago.

On the Israeli side, 10 have been reported dead, including two children. 


Quebec coronavirus update

In coronavirus news, the federal government released its vaccination goals for the year. 

If 75 per cent of adults in Canada receive at least one dose by the summer, Ottawa says patios, picnics and camping will be allowed across the country.

If three quarters of Canadians have two doses by the fall, family gatherings will likely be permitted. 

In Quebec, just about half of residents have received at least one dose, for an average of about 85 thousand shots per day.
