For the second night in a row, Palestinians head to the Gaza border to take part in “night confusion activities,” which usually include setting tires ablaze and hurling explosive devices toward the security fence.

Last night, 11 Palestinians were hurt by live fire and other riot control measures used by the Israel Defense Forces during the clashes, according to the Hamas-run health ministry.

Hamas-affiliated groups have said that the nightly riots on the border will continue until at least Thursday, with this evening’s riots set to start around 8 p.m.
