Palestinians in the Gaza Strip are again rioting on the border with Israel.

Footage published by Palestinian media shows rioters setting tires on fire close to the Israeli security barrier.

There is no immediate comment from the Israeli military.

Recent weeks have seen several riots along the Gaza border, which have included explosive devices being detonated on the security barrier and a handful of cases of gunfire toward Israeli troops.

The riots come despite Israeli sanctions and a strike against a Hamas observation post over the weekend in response to recent violent protests.
