More than 6,000 Palestinians rioted on the Israel-Gaza Strip border on Friday, throwing rocks, firebombs and explosive devices at IDF troops.
The soldiers responded with riot-dispersal means. According to medical officials in Hamas-ruled Gaza, nearly 100 Palestinians were injured.
Friday’s protests were held under the banner, “Burning the Israeli Flag.”
Border unrest has been a near-weekly occurrence since the Hamas-orchestrated “Great March of Return” demonstrations began in March 2018.
Last Friday night, a rocket fired from Gaza exploded in an open area in southern Israel, causing no injuries or damage.
