Army: 3,000 Palestinians taking part in riots on Gaza border

The Israel Defense Forces say 3,000 Palestinians are taking part in clashes Friday along the Gaza border.

The army says riots took place at five different locations along the border fence, with demonstrators trying to approach security infrastructure, burning tires near it and trying to fly kites with burning objects to attached to them.

“A number of kites crossed into Israeli territory and were extinguished as needed,” the army says.

The IDF says soldiers are using riot dispersal means and live fire to prevent the demonstrators from approaching the border.

“The IDF will not allow harm to security infrastructure and the [border] fence, which protect Israeli citizens and will act against violent rioters and terrorists involved in this,” the army says.
