Fresh clashes reported along Gaza border after day of relative calm

Palestinian protesters are clashing with Israeli security forces along the border of the southern Gaza Strip, according to reports in Israeli and Palestinian media.

Reports says the so-called “night confusion units” are launching incendiary balloons towards Israel and hurling explosive devices at Israeli troops.

Residents of nearby Israeli communities report hearing sounds of explosions.

The clashes come after a day of relative calm in and around Gaza, as Egyptian mediators are meeting with top Hamas officials in a bid to negotiate a ceasefire deal with Israel.
