Israel views the protests as riots and says its response is a justified defense of Israeli civilians living in the Gaza periphery. He said retaliatory strikes had hit 20 targets, including a Hamas attack tunnel and an "advanced weapons manufacturing site".

YouTube has reported widespread outages on several of their sites Tuesday evening. "We're working on resolving this and will let you know once fixed", YouTube said in a tweet. "We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and will keep you updated", Team Youtube posted on Twitter. One of Google's subsidiaries, Youtube was launched in 2005.

In addition, the new gaming section on YouTube's website will feature dedicated pages for games, populated with content such as popular videos, streams, and even other games created by the same developer.

A little over an hour later, the issue has been resolved. During the 2018 FIFA World Cup, YouTube TV - a paid livestreaming service - went down briefly during the match between Croatia and England.
