This film documents a number of war crimes committed by Israelis during the ‘Great March of Return’. It details the murder of the young medic, Razan al-Najjar, attending the wounded on the Gaza strip. As far as I know no action has been taken by the international criminal court in the Hague.
According to the film, at first Israeli snipers were authorised to shoot militants on the Great March of Return, and when that did not subdue the Friday protests, Israel targetted the Press, and then children, and finally medics. All to no avail. The protests continued, their grievance: the violence of the occupation, remains.
I recommend this film but be aware it is not for the faint-hearted.
